LOS ANGELES (AFP) – US automaker Tesla Motors unveiled its state-of-the-art five-seat sedan here Thursday, billed as the world's first mass-produced, highway-capable electric car.

Tesla chief executive Elon Musk said the company, which last year released a breakthrough two-seater roadster, aims to have its sleek "Model S" sedan rolling off assembly lines by 2011.

The futuristic zero-emission vehicle will be powered by lithium-ion battery packs capable of between 160 and 300 miles (257 and 482 kilometers) per charge.

The car has an anticipated base price of 57,400 dollars but will cost less than 50,000 after a federal tax credit of 7,500 dollars, Musk said. I should have phrased the title of the post, the ONLY champions of the war on terror.

The rest are just champions of pissing away our tax dollars.

At $50K, this thing would be mainstream and competitive with current terrorism-financing models.

The Tesla Roadster was unreliable and didn't live up to it's advertised stats (especially range.) Hope this one is an improvement.
