Tesla Model S Alpha Test Video: Specs and Features

The Tesla Roadster is not only one of the most fuel-efficient cars, but also one of the top 8 electric vehicles as well. We wonder if the Tesla Model S will follow in its footsteps? Well looking at the Alpha test video below it is hard to imagine why not, and it certainly has the specs and features to back it up.

One of the most important features of a car is its aerodynamics, and it is even more important on an EV, as you need to try and squeeze every amount of miles out of that electric motor. While watching the video you can see two things, the car is quiet and seems to look glued to the road.

Even though the car is on the large side, it will handle much better than most cars of its size, and that is just what Tesla wanted to achieve with the Alpha S. More testing will go on over the next few months, so we can expect a few more exciting videos. It is good to know that there is a carmaker out there who is not afraid to push the boundaries of car design and the fuel-source needed to power it.

The Tesla Model S will have a top speed of 121mph and a 0-60 time of 5.6 seconds. Where this car differs to standard gasoline cars is the instant torque and the acceleration always there when you need it. What is amazing about this model is how it can fit five adults and 2 children, so 7 people in total.

The Model S has a range of 160, 230, or 300 miles and a QuickCharge only takes 45 minutes. For more details visit the official Tesla Motors website.
