Tesla: electric supercar driven - How much?
That takes care of 2009’s 250 cars, but from 2010 Europe will get 900-1000 more cars with a starting price of £89,000.
While there are plans to have right-hand drive cars for the UK some time in 2011, the first two years will be left-hand drive only.
Tesla reckons at current energy prices it costs about three pence per mile to charge the car, so use it for 10,000 miles in a year and you'll tack on £300 to your household bills.
This figure, of course, doesn’t take other running costs into consideration, like depreciation, insurance and so on, but it’s a lot less cash than you spend filling your tank every year at the moment, isn’t it?
