Got an email from TESLA.
looks like the 160mile will be 49500$ USD after tax rebate.
The 230mile will be 10,000$ more and 300mile will be 20,000$ more.
Now this is going to be the shocker...... THE 300mile versions will be delivered first! The opposite of
what everyone thought. Followed by the 230mile and finally the 160mile by late 2012. Deliveries start mid-2012.
All the information above can change without notice.. but expect the prices to be very close... I just hope the Canadian pricing is about the same considering our dollar is almost on par. (was last week)
What i want to know is, since the 300mile variant cannot be quickly charged.... does it really have any advantages aside from long distance trips? since leaving the TESLA on charge everyday with a 160mile variant would keep it topped up at all times.. compared to a 300mile variant that might need a full day or longer to charge it full (without any fancy 480v)
