Tesla can do no wrong right now. Following the success of their Roadster, the all electric automobile company quickly sold out of pre-orders for their Model S sedan and now is continuing strong with their crossover Model X vehicle. To date, Tesla has secured over 650 buyers for the latest car that will be officially released sometime next year and they’ve netted over $40 million from pre-orders alone. Looks like their product is finally catching on.

The technology inside their whips is so advanced, sitting inside the cockpit almost brings up Minority Report-esque feelings. To give you some idea of what where they’re trying to take their cars, there aren’t any physical buttons on the dashboard, much less a CD drive. It’s like they’re the automobile version of Apple, deciding what their consumers want before they even know they want it. The Model S comes fully equipped with a monthly 4G data plan, internet browser, and a wide variety of third party apps. For anyone that can afford them, these things wills be ahead of their time for at least a few more years. Where most car companies are still trying to please the masses, Tesla keeps pushing forward. It’s exactly the kind of innovation America’s auto industry needs and where others need to start following pronto.


Tesla Model S will come in three price ranges based on size of battery pack.

$57,400 base model will have range of up to 160 miles compared to 300 miles range of premium price version.

Tesla Model S slated for sales launch in mid-2012.

The California-based firm has already received orders for 3,700 Model S cars.

To date, Tesla has sold more than 1,500 Roadsters.

The 1,500 electric Roadsters have collectively saved 500,000 gallons of fuel and over 5.3 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions.
