Costs more in Europe

Tesla Motors has revealed European pricing information for the Model S.

They will not offer the entry-level 40 kWh variant on the old continent. However, customers can get the electric sedan in either the 60 kWh or 85 kWh variant. The former costs 72,600 EUR, making it about 18,000 EUR (about 23,808 USD) more expensive than it is in the United States because of extra transport costs and import duties. In addition, U.S. buyers benefit from a 7,500 USD tax credit.

The 85 kWh has a starting price of 83,150 EUR, followed by the Model S Performance 85 kWh at 97,550 EUR. There's also the Signature 85 kWh version priced at 101,400 EUR and the flagship Signature Performance 85 kWh at 110,950 EUR.

Tesla Motors will start making right-hand drive models in late 2013 and announce UK prices "four to five months before the start of deliveries."

Those who reserve a vehicle by the end of the year will benefit from a 1,300 GBP discount. To do this a 4,000 GBP deposit is required for the Model S or 30,000 GBP for the Performance variant.

I still have one question about this car: What do you do when the whole package of batteries dies after 5 or 6 years as they usually do? If a regular battery is about $100, those shouldn't be less than a few thousand dollars worth.

LMAO. The batteries are good for 1000 cycles, if the car can do 500km on one charge that equals 500 000 kms. None of the engines made today will be able to do such mileage without major parts replacement. And the only maintenance with the Tesla engine is to change the oil every 15 years. Not to mention that you will spend 3x less on electiricty than on gas to go the same distance.

you're expecting each cycle to be fully used for driving, what about - partial or over charges ? - reduced mileage per charge because of aircon ?

I doubt a battery will do 1000 cycles with usable power... After 200 or so, the capacity should already be at 80 or 70%, unless Tesla made a miracle in batteries... And batterys even if stored without using any cycle, after 5 years they already lost a big chunk of capacity

People like to whine and complain for no good reason.This car represents major progress in the automotive industry. I would have loved to see the BMWs and Mercedes' of the world take the leadership

The 40 kWh battery is covered for 8 years or 100,000 miles, and 60 kWh battery is covered for 8 years or 125,000 miles, whichever comes first in both cases. The largest battery, 85 kWh, is covered for eight years and unlimited miles. There is also an option to prepay a replacement battery. So after 8 years you get a new one. It's $12,000 for the 85kWh.

Not really, you guys in the US show prices excluding taxes So USD 50k, with the current USD/EUR ratio would only mean EUR 37k No way european taxes would account for +100% !!
