The Electric Battle

So yes still a year away, but this is a great alternative to gas engine. It has the range and a great look. A little high on price, but not bad at $49,000.

2011 Tesla Model S
– $49,000 Starting Price
– 0-60 mph in 5.6 seconds
– Range is 300 miles
– 120 mph top speed
– Sport sedan dynamics


The Fisker Karma will be available in 2010 so a much shorter wait, but more expensive and has only 50 miles on electric only. So might work for some, but defeats the purpose for me.

2010 Fisker Karma 4-door
$87,900.00 USD
– 0-60 mph in 7 seconds
– Range is 300 miles
– 95 mph top speed

Have to say my first choice would be the Tesla because of true electric range and of course the price. Looking forward to this electric market.

What’s your favorite of the 2 or do you have another favorite so far?
