Tesla Model S Electric Sedan Teaser PictureThese are not the best times for Tesla Motors. As we recently reported, Elon Musk is back at the Helm, the Model S has been delayed and some of the firm's workers will be laid off. Because of the credit crunch, capital is harder to come by, and car companies are very capital-intensive...
So to have some positive news, Tesla decided to give us a peek at their Model S prototype.To Tease, You Have to Reveal Something...Unfortunately, as you can see above, it's a pretty meaningless teaser. It does confirm that the the electric sedan isn't complete vaporware, but we see so little that it could be the back of some random Mazda sedan.
With the extra 6 months delay, the Model S electric sedan (seats 5 adults) should be on the market around mid-2011. Target price is $60,000. Lets hope that it works out according to plan and that the extra 6 months allow Tesla to give the car extra polish.
