Tesla Model S

Tesla Model S

It’s cool to be green. It’s also the right thing to do. But it wasn’t until we test drove the 2013 Tesla Model S that we figured out how fun and exciting it could be! You really don’t realize just how cool this car is until you take it for a spin. There is no doubt in our mind that this is the future of automobiles. After a lengthy test drive, we are here to tell you…the future looks bright!

Is it really possible to be in a green car with zero tailpipe emissions and still go from zero to sixty n 5.6 seconds? The answer is “YES!” The Tesla flies! And it handles like a dream! The car is always on so all you have to do is get in and drive. The design of this amazing car is very modern and we would select it over luxury vehicles that cost much more. The inside is equally stunning and we couldn’t take our eyes off of the 17-inch electronic dashboard. Since this is not a typical car with typical parts, there is a ton of storage space and it seats up to 7 people. All the safety features you would expect are on the Tesla and they are expecting very high scores when it comes to safety.

The base model starts at $57,400 and you have a lot of options that allow you to customize your vehicle. The running costs to charge the vehicle is a fraction of the cost of the gasoline used by luxury sedans. They estimate the car costs roughly $5 to drive 230 miles. The Tesla also qualifies for a $7,500 Federal income tax credit. In California, it also gives you access to the carpool lane. To get your Tesla, you will need a $5,000 refundable deposit to reserve the Model S. As you wait for your car, you will be contacted for a test drive.

I don’t know about you but we hate going to a dealership for service. The Tesla is changing that. First, you only service your vehicle once a year…you heard me! You can then request a mobile technician to come to your home or office to perform any work that doesn’t require a vehicle lift. They also have their own special roadside assistance. It’s been a while since we’ve gotten this excited about a car. In our opinion, every household should have at least one electric car.  If it’s the Model S, you will have a hard time getting anyone to use any other car.

  1. Green, fast, good looking (for a sedan) and affordable… what more can guy/dad ask for in a car? I’ve been tracking Tesla and their stock for over a year now. I knew they were working on a sedan but didn’t realize it would be offered at such an affordable price point. Thanks Cool Stuff Cafe for posting this!

  2. Thank you to everyone that participated in our Go Green in 2013 contest! The winner is Michael Brewer! One of the ways Michael is going green in 2013 is installing solar panels on his new home…very cool!
