Tesla milestone – 1000 Model S produced image

Tesla Motors is celebrating the 1, 000th unit production of the Model S, with October being one of the best months for the company in assembling the model.

Tesla Motors was initially planning to produce a total of 5, 000 units of the Model S until the end of the year but considering the fact that at the end of October the company is celebrating the 1,000th unit produced, the initial target won’t be achieved, even if the demand will increase. The first Tesla Model S has been delivered back in June this year and since then, more and more people are starting to appreciate it.

As a quick reminder, the Tesla Model S has a starting price of 49,900 USD and the entire production for 2012 has been sold out since earlier this year. Tesla says that an upgrade package, which has been named the Model S Performance, is adding features like the Nappa leather with Alcantara accents in the cabin, carbon fiber accents for the exterior, a high-performance drive inverter, active air suspension with sport-tuned traction control and upgraded wheels and tires. The 60kWh model costs 59,900 USD but for the 85kWh version, 10,000 USD extra will be added. Standard equipment includes a 17-inch touchscreen infotainment and 19-inch alloy wheels.
