Tesla Motors has sold out of the top-of-the-line version of its Model S battery-electric luxury sedan and is taking deposits on its Model X crossover vehicle, Edmunds.com’s Inside Line reports.
The Model S Signature version, which starts at $92,400 and tops out at $105,400, is no longer available for pre-order on Tesla’s website, Inside Line says. The company continues to take deposits on the base Model S – starting price is $57,400 – and has started taking orders for the Model X, which is set to arrive by the end of next year.
Tesla said last month that one of its Model S testers beat the company’s goal of a 300-mile single-charge drive under a combination of city and highway driving. If you want to go that far, you should look into the longest-range Model S, which will sell for a minimum of $77,000. Tesla says it expects Model S sales to reach about 5,000 units this year.
Late last month, Tesla put out a video from its factory showing off its Model S stamping machine and is counting down to the first delivery, which is scheduled for 15 days from now.
