I love these Tesla cars, but like most when the Model S was first announced, i didn't care because the price tag screamed "10%er's only!, Go be poor somewhere else". I know that Tesla is working on a new model that will be priced at entry level BMW territory. But for many in the middle class, 35K+ (38k-40k OTD) is not even close to being considered "affordable". With all the amazing things i hear about these current cars I truly want Tesla to be successful, though i feel the only real way this will ever happen is when a model is released in the 25k (30k OTD max) range. I now it might be too soon for now as the rumored Model E hasn't even hit car show floors yet. But is a true affordable model in the future for Tesla and more importantly the largest consumer base in the US?
