Tesla Model S 2017.
The Ministry of Environment and Conservation, Agriculture and Consumer Protection of North Rhine-Westphalia, a German region, has recently acquired a Tesla Model S as official car, decision that seems not to have appealed to the local media, it seems that they prefer that the taxpayer money would go to a model of a national brand.
The reason alleged by an officer of this Ministry is simple, there is on the market another model that has the range of autonomy that has the Model S, which was acquired in its version Model S 90D. This has a range of autonomy approved 512 kilometers, although decreased to 501 kms when riding a the choice of wheels 21-inch.
The same spokesman added that the area of action of the Ministry of 34.084 square miles, so that the range of autonomy was one of the essential requirements when choosing the model of the brand’s north american.
In your version Model S 90D has 512 km of autonomy.
This has a value in its most basic 110.000 euros, a value considerably higher than the other electric models available on the market, although it is quite certain that it is the only sedan currently available in Europe with these characteristics and the electric with increased range of autonomy of the global market.
The closest thing we can find in Europe the Model S is the Mercedes B-Class Electric Drive, although with a range of about 200 miles. Volkswagen has the e-Golf, that after your update is able to travel up to 300 kms, but for size and interior space is further away from the Model S that the Class B.
Until well into 2017, we shall not find available the new Opel Ampera-e, although this will be exported initially from the united States, where it is manufactured alongside the Chevrolet Bolt EV. This does not come to the figures of the Tesla, for autonomy is in about 380 kilometers real, although the brand announced 500 recently, and for the price it costs less than half of the Model S.
