TESLA S SEDAN PRICE
While the P100D Ludicrous is obviously an high-priced car, we want to emphasize that each sale helps pay for the smaller and much more affordable Tesla version 3 that is in development,” the enterprise said in a statement. “without customers willing to buy the costly model S and X, we would be unable to fund the smaller, more affordable model 3 development.”
The LaFerrari and the Porsche 918 Spyder can outrun the Tesla model S sedan.
The model S P100D will start at $134,500, and the version X 100D will begin at $135,500.
