This Is The Cheapest Tesla On The Market

Reveal

New entry level sedan replaces the S 60.

When most automakers add a new car to the lineup there is atleast a little fanfare surrounding the announcement. Tesla isn’t mostautomakers. The electric car company has quietly dropped the Model S 70D, a morepowerful and more expensive replacement for the S 60. Those keeping score athome will note that the S 60 was the cheapest Tesla around, a title now claimedby the 70D. As always in the world of cars, “cheap” is a relative term.

The 70D comes in at $75,000 but incentives and gas savingscould knock a couple thousand off the total. There's an EPA estimated maxrange of 240 miles, a 0 to 60 mph time of 5.2 seconds and a 140 mph top speed. There's also access to Tesla’s network of superchargers, a privilege which previously cost$2,000. EVs still face an uphill battle when it comes togaining mainstream acceptance, but the tide appears to be shifting. Teslastill has a long way to go but the company is proving that its innovative salesmethods and agile development process works, at least in the short-term.
