Tesla Proclaim: ‘It’s Time to Build Your Model S’

Industry News

The first Model S electric five-door is nearing production.

A couple of days ago, Tesla Motors sent a letter to Tesla Model S Signature Series reservation holders saying that "It's Time to Build Your Model S. The Fremont factory is almost ready and the entire Tesla team is very excited about taking this next important step." As originally planned, the first Model S electric 5-doors will start being delivered in July. In the same letter, Tesla revealed they have added three new colors to its interior options: Piano Black, Lacewood and Banana Leaf.

Internet connectivity will be an option on all cars. Tesla will also personally deliver cars to a location of customer's choice. The base price of the Model S is $57,400, which comes with a 160-mile single-charge range or for $77,000 a 300-mile-range variant can be ordered. The Signature Series represents the first 1,000 cars to come off the production line, and will come with extra features and a higher price tag of $95,400. A performance version has a base price of $105,400. Unlike the Tesla Roadster, which was built on a Lotus chassis, the Model S was designed from the ground up and will be manufactured by Tesla at the Fremont factory.
