Over here, Ze’ev wrote: ## "...the Model S..." “…a base price of about $60,000 and get about 240 miles per charge…” Is it really 240 miles per charge for $60K now? Many articles have been showing 160 mile range estimates for the $60K base ‘S’… For example, From AutoBlog, & AutoBlogGreen: “…The base model is expected to get a 160-mile range for it's $60,000 base price, while 220- or 300-mile options will cost extra..." Note - I posted the above question to Tesla's blog and after a few days of 'awaiting moderation', they just deleted it. I suppose we will have to wait and see if they do offer 240 miles range for $60K, but it seems for now they are not going to clarify. Although they removed my post asking about the 160 vs 240 discrepancy they seem to be allowing other posts to echo the 240 mile number. For instance: # Richard C wrote on September 18th, 2008 at 1:25 am ## ... I can’t wait to see the first Model S’s coming off the line in two years. ## ... At $60,000 that’s still squarely in the luxury range... ## ... With a 240-mile range and probably a Roadster-like recharge time... So I guess all we can do is assume the 240 mile range is the most current projection and ignore all the older articles that said either 225 mile or 160 mile range. We should also ignore all the old articles that said it would have a 'range extender' device. Was this article the source of confusion? "...Tesla plans to have its Model S five-seat electric hatchback on sale by 2010 in both the United States and Europe. It will be priced at around $60,000 (£31,800) with a 160-mile range and $68,000 (£36,000) with a 220-mile range, with a 300-mile version to follow..." Or this?: "...Three models are likely to be available; an entry-level $60,000 (£31k) version with a 160-mile range, a $68,000 (£36k) version with a 220-mile range and a 300-mile version in the future...." Riverwired echos Autocar: "...According to Autocar, a U.K. site, there will be three models of the S available: a 160-mile range for $60,000; a 220-mile range for $68,000; and a future 300-mile range version that hasn’t had a price pinned on it yet.."
