Based on the prototypes, the vehicle offers ample seating for five adults with an option for an additional two rear-facing children’s seats. The car will start at $57,400 and have three battery pack options, providing from 160 to 300 miles per charge, depending on the battery pack. It is expected to qualify for federal and state incentives and car-pool lane permits. To read more about the Tesla Model S Sedan, click on this previous LCT blog post.

On the topic of electric vehicles, a new study by emissions expert Juerg Gruetter of Gruetter Consulting reports that operating an electric vehicle in China today emits more greenhouse gases than simply driving a gasoline equivalent.
The reason is that since China’s power grid is predominantly fed by dirty coal, recharging the battery-powered vehicles will release far more emissions than just putting gasoline in the tanks. The hard truth is that electric vehicles are only as clean as the grid that supplies them with power.  -- Michael Campos, LCT assistant editor
