With environmental issues in the back of their minds, it’s no news that car builders are eagerly moving towards the most economical range of cars they can offer. The luxury car builders included. Volkswagen’s BlueMotion, Mercedes’ BlueEFFICIENCY and Lexus’ Full Hybrid program are only a few in the long line of energy saving improvements in the automotive world. The downside of it all is that this hybrid/electrical segment is becoming a bit boring if you ask me.. There is, however, a solution if your wallet permits. The days of the Toyota Prius as synonym for economical driving are far-gone. Look no further, the Tesla Model S is what we’re heading to! With its luxurious appeal, a top speed of 120 mph (190 km/h) and its fully electrical engine this car is definitely worth mentioning. Probably the best thing about this car is that it doesn’t differ that much from the original prototype. In fact, it still looks like one. Production is expected to start somewhere next year and it will set you back $ 56.400 (approx. € 41.000) without any tax credits. More pictures below.
