Both new and official information about the Tesla model is available. It seems that, fortunately, the price will not increase, it will remain the same. According to Tesla, the base Model S, with an estimated 160 miles of range, will retail for about $57,400 with a tax credit of $7,500. As far as the 230 mile range version is concerned, this will carry a $10,000 premium with an additional $10, 000 if you want a chance at making 300 miles on a charge. $77,400 will get you the top of the line Model S 300, a limited edition of 1000 vehicles, which will initially be named the “Model S Signature Series”. The prices are quite acceptable if we are taking all the features and advantages offered.

Tesla Roadster should be launched before the end of the year.
But it looks like the launch of the wicked-fast electric car will be postponed because the company is having some problems finding a transmission strong enough to handle gear shifts while the car runs at full torque.
In the meantime, the company is considering providing vehicles that feature â€œtemporaryâ€ transmissions.
There is already one model built right now, but that one has been built for company chairman Elon Musk and Tesla is currently undecided whether to ship cars with the temporary units and then to replace them when a final transmission becomes available. Iâ€™m quite sure that a lot of people would buy this car no matter what transmission will it outfitted with.
