Tesla Motors Planning New Electrifying Sedan?


There are rumors that electric car maker Tesla Motors is working on a next-generation sports electric sedan to join its innovative electric Roadster car (pictured above, see previous story). The new vehicle is said to take on the BMW 5-Series. It's a rear-drive vehicle and will be sold globally, with a more ambitious volume target of 10,000-20,000 units per year. According the Winding Road: "The new car will likely ride on a chassis made of lightweight steel (the Roadster employs Lotus Elise-sourced bonded-aluminum). There are apparently also plans for additional Roadster models, including a pricier "luxury" model with more powerful batteries and greater range." :: Via The Energy Blog
