2013 Tesla Model S

Electric cars are known for being slow and inconvenient. Not only do they usually look funny, they also don't run for long until they need charging again.

This car company founded in 2003 in California, USA is the leading motor firm in electric cars. From 2008 they were famous for making the Tesla Roadster which was an extremely quick sports car. The main problem with this car was it's reliability; if you are paying £90,000 for a car you don't want it to break easily.

However now they have made a new car. This car does 0-60 in 5.6 seconds and it can go for over 300 miles without needing to be charged up again. This car is not a sports car, instead Tesla has decided to make a sports-saloon which you could imagine high-profile business men driving. This car is the 2013 Tesla Model S!

Apart from looking beautiful this car is also quite practical according to Tesla. They say that in the UK they have over 1000 charging points and in London you will never be more than 500 meters away from one. This means that if you are running low on battery you can do a quick charge and then be on your way.
