The Tesla Model S is coming to the UK at a price of £70,000 and with a release date set somewhere in June. Britain has an issue with electric cars and the uptake is very slow with way under 2,000 electric models registered in the first quarter of 2014, but this could be about to change if the price comes down a little.
What’s really impressive about the Tesla Model S specs on the UK version is the fact that it can travel 300 miles on a single charge. This means a 20-minute recharge will take the car almost the length of England without having to charge again.
You can see the Google Map below that shows a route from London to Newcastle, and this trip is just under 300 miles, so your Tesla Model S electric car can make that journey without a recharge.
Will you be looking at changing to an electric car in 2014 or 2015? If so, will the UK Tesla Model S be the turning point for you or is the price still too high?
