Tesla electric car to be priced under $50K

For the model S; that’s after all the tax rebates are counted.

And while that’s still more than a Toyota Prius or a Honda Insight, the Tesla is no girly car. Designed and manufactured by a couple of Silicon Valley entrepreneurs who were bored with the toy-like look and performance of other electric cars, the Tesla is about as cool as it gets and fiendishly fast. Zero to 60 in four seconds.
