I feel like there’s something missing from this video of a Tesla Model S cruising down the road. Oh yes, the thumping music and roaring engines that usually accompany these road-type videos — on Top Gear, anyway. Isn’t it a little creepy how quiet it is?
If you’re looking for more Model S love, we got a bunch of shots of a nice red one at CES. I actually like the silver color better, though.
The Model S is set to be Tesla’s break-out vehicle; despite lots of media attention, limited production facilities (read: every one made by hand) have limited Roadster sales to around 1500. But Tesla hopes to sell a hundred times that number of the far more practical four-door sedan you see here. Availability isn’t really announced, though. There’s a bit more info at the Tesla blog.
