That is sweet looking. I really like the sedan design but the hatchback trunk! That is an awesome design.

Indeed... looks very convincing. Is it a plug-in hybrid or all-electric?

45-minute charge is pretty impressive. Is that why it costs so much?

I still prefer the idea of a plug-in hybrid. Never run out of juice that way.

The price asterisk is interesting.

Model S
Base Price $49,900 *




*The anticipated base price of the Model S is $57,400


Very nice car, however. I do like the new technology. Do we know what the materials are for the skin?

I think there's a $7,500+ federal tax credit involved in that asterisk...
