Success D r i v e BATTERY INCLUDED If your last experience with an electric-powered car was a radio-controlled Radio Shack toy...or worse... prepare to be amazed by the sleek Tesla S 4-door sedan, a vehicle that’s begging to be driven. TEX T BY BILL LINDSEY P H O T O S CO U R T E S Y O F T E S L A The exterior of the new Tesla S is nothing less than sensuous perfection, but the interior is even better. Inside is essentially a leather- lined Apple store due to the 17” hi-res display that provides full detail about all aspects of the car and its current state of affairs — from battery life to cruising range, climate control, Google Maps nav system and web connectivity. The unique liquid-cooled motor emits a spirited growl as it takes you from 0-60 in 5.6 seconds, all the way up to 130 mph for up to 320 miles before you need to pull over to top off the batteries at the nearest 120 or 240v socket. Starting at $71,000; TeslaMotors.com. 54
