First customers will get the Tesla Model S on June 22

Article by Christian A., on May 22, 2012

Tesla has just announced that the first Model S deliveries will begin on June 22. The American manufacturer also added that several customers will receive their cars at an invitation-only event at the Tesla factory in Fremont, California. Of course, the June release of the Tesla Model S is not a surprise as the company said that it will launch the new car earlier than expected.

The Tesla Model S is a key part of firm’s plan to reduce our dependence on oil. According to the manufacturer, 5,000 Model S cars will be delivered by the end of the year, while reservations top 10,000. The Model S has yet to receive the crash test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration as well as the EPA rating and these factors will also boost sales.

We do hope the Tesla Model S to act different in a garage, not like the Fisker Karma. “The star rating is assigned by NHTSA after they perform their own validation test. Tesla has completed all required FMVSS tests and we believe that the performance we have observed will yield a five-star rating from NHTSA,” Tesla said in a statement.

If you are interested in buying a Tesla Model S, you have to know that the base price will be about $57,000, but the car will get a $7,500 U.S. federal tax credit.

The base version will offer a range of around 160 miles (258 km), but for an extra $10,000 you can get a Model S capable to offer a range of 230 miles (370 km). For another $10,000 you will get the Model S capable to be driven for an impressive 300 miles (483 km).
