Tesla's Model S Alpha Takes to the Streets [VIDEO]


Last week, we had the chance to chat with Peter Rawlinson, Tesla's VP of engineering, about the upcoming Model S electric sedan. Now we have footage of the $57,000 vehicle on the streets. As the video below demonstrates, the car can really perform.

Expect more clips in the near future—this is just the alpha version of the vehicle. A beta version will go into testing before the Model S is released in mid-2012.
