Electric cars might not be on everyone’s shopping list quite yet but that’s all going to change if Elon Musk has anything to do with it. Since day one Telsa motors has been under everyone’s gaze and even more so this year after the announcement of both the Powerwall home charging system, and the insanely big (And getting bigger!) Gigafactory and it looks like today is no exception.
Back in March the Model S introduced a blind spot warning system and automatic braking and today the flagship model gets an even bigger upgrade. The car now offers a 90kWh battery pack for a mere $3000 and the high performance models 0-60 time gets bumped to an astonishing 2.8 seconds bringing a 5 seater sedan into the leagues of the Lamborghini Gallardo and the Ariel Atom. For $70k.
The bigger battery pack is now shared with the long anticipated Model X SUV which Musk reports is still on track for late September and is set to be just as ludicrously fast as the Model S.
While the only update we got on the Model 3 was that it’s still on track for 2017 Musk was keen to point out that they’re focusing on getting the Model X out the door and done right.
If the Model S is anything to go by, we don’t have a thing to worry about!
