Lots of positive news to take from this one (as is often the case with Tesla news these days)...
So interesting and exciting what they're doing, full story here:Tesla has defied its doubters (especially among petrolheads) with the success of the Model S, a smartly styled luxury saloon. It may not share the outrageous looks of a supercar like the Lamborghini Aventador, but it has the performance without the $400,000-plus price tag. The most basic Model S costs $64,000 in America (after subsidies). This has won it rave reviews in the motoring press, often sniffy about other electric cars with limited ranges and duff looks. By designing a large car with a big battery pack, Tesla has diminished “range anxiety”—one version can do 310 miles (500km) between charges.
