By now you’ve probably heard that Tesla has just announced its next generation of its Model S sedan.
And we’ve been wondering: how will the price tag compare to that of its competitors?
We’ve been told that the car will start at £42,995, and then the list goes on to include options including a four-wheel drive, electric powertrains and even a retractable roof.
So what does this mean for the car?
Well, for one thing, it’s a big step up in price, although it will still come with a battery pack of 5kWh and Tesla’s own powertrain.
The Model S is currently the world’s fastest selling electric car, with a market share of more than 9%.
The new model has been described as “the next generation”, and the company is hoping to take the crown by a few months.
However, the launch is just weeks away, and we’re hoping for a big announcement in the coming weeks.
The new Tesla Model X crossover – and how to buy one The car will be priced at £44,990, and it will be available to buy from April 2017.
In addition, the car has been named the “world’s fastest-selling electric car”, with a car-sales estimate of more like 1.5m units sold in just three months.
Tesla is expected to sell around 6.5 million Model Xs by the end of 2021.
And with the introduction of a new battery pack, it could be a few years before we know for sure what the range of the new Tesla is.
However, the new Model S will be the first car to use the Tesla’s Autopilot feature, which allows the car to autonomously steer itself and avoid hitting other vehicles in an accident.
Autopilot has already been used on some cars, such as the BMW i3 and Audi A4, but it’s not yet available on the Tesla.
However this could be something of a boon to Tesla, as Autopilots are more secure in the hands of the driver than the car, which could be especially handy in congested areas.
The company has also announced that it will soon be introducing an all-electric version of the Model S, called the Model X S Energi, which will be more affordable.
As well as being the first Tesla to offer a more affordable electric car than the Model 3, the Model E could be one of the biggest coupes of the year.
It’s expected to start at around £57,000, and will include a bigger battery pack than the previous model, with an estimated range of around 400km.
If the new version is anything like the previous one, we’re confident that it’ll be a much better car.
We’ve already seen some reviews from people who love the new model, so we’ll keep an eye on it.
If it is anything close to the previous Model S we can only imagine how much more fun it will get to drive.
