Ludicrous indeed!
Entry level car? So $95,000 instead of$100,000? Ludicrous indeed!
The S-series from Tesla will prove to be one of the great car designs of all time - electric or not. As for extra get up and go: I can take it or leave it since the car is already more than fast enough for a sedan. Nice to know that they have solved the issue of amperage draw and resulting heat. Now, if they could harvest that heat, we'd really be on to something. When the price for this car gets to $75,000 (as it will) Tesla will have done the nearly impossible and consumers will be the beneficiaries. Until then we'll just have to believe the "we're saving you thousands on gasoline so we're factoring that into the net payment calculation"...even though you are out of pocket for it in the first instance.

Oh....excuse me...is that too simple of an idea. warren52nz Elon Musk will go down in history as one of the greatest game changers in this world. If I can ever afford a Tesla I'll certainly get one. My Lexus won't last forever (well it might outlast me). I'll drink a toast to him right after Dry July is over. Daishi @bradleydad The article didn't say "Entry level car", it said "entry-level Model S". At no point anywhere did anyone say the Model S itself is an entry level car. The base price for Model S 70 is$70k before incentives. $20k in fuel savings over 10 years and the$7,500 tax credit puts it at ~\$42,500. It's still far from cheap but it's closer to the cost of ownership of a high end SUV or a 5 series BMW than a Ferrari or something. The S was never meant to be a low budget car.
