Tesla is barely a blip on the screen for any or all sales but kudo's to them offering a $58,570 base list car at this level. That rear motor makes 362 hp at 6-9000 rpm and 325 lb-ft at 0-5000 rpm in the base model. Short-haul drivers can get a 40 kWh pack good for about 140 miles of EPA 5-cycle range. Forget the tax credits for a moment and just comparing some big makers offerings:

By comparison a 2012 Nissan LEAF 24 kWh battery propels the 1300-pound lighter car 73 miles. Price before tax credits is $36,000.

A Ford Focus BEV is only $40,000!!!! Ooooh.
