Tesla has announced the final pricing and options for its übercool – Whitestar – Model S sedan, which will hit the US market Mid-2012. Unlike Tesla’s first vehicle – Roadster – the Model S is a practical, yet supremely smooth looking family car, seating five or seven in Jaguar XF style luxury. Model S starts at around half the price of the $110k sporty Roadster. Tesla has reported that more than 6,500 reservations – with a minimum deposit of $US5,000, a total $US11 million in commitment from buyers has been raised – have been taken, and expect that number to sky-rocket. Amusingly, nearly 1000 punters had placed a deposit before the artists ink had dried on the concept renderings back in May 2009, this is clearly a much anticipated auto.
