FAIL: Tesla confirms Model S pricing and options: $50k+

Sorry gents – but this won’t cut it – still way too expensive and you know what – the electricity to power this car has to be generated somewhere – probably in some coal fired plant which releases way more pollutants than a regular internal combustion engine would.

Tesla Motors has talked a fair bit about pricing for its Model S sedan over the past couple of years, but it’s now finally set things in stone. US pricing for the base model will start at $49,900, although that’s only after you factor in the $7,500 federal tax credit. As Tesla notes, that’s the very same pricing that the company first promised way back when the car was unveiled in 2009, but it does come with a few trade-offs (more on that later).
