In the latest episode of Wide Open Throttle, Frank Markus drives the all-new Tesla Model S while host Jessi Lang takes us to electric automaker's Northern California factory for a tour and a look at how the Model S is built.
Lang starts with 2012 Tesla Model S specs. The Model S will be available with 40-, 60- and 85-kWh battery capacities, with an estimated range of up to 265 miles. The Model S is powered by a rear AC induction motor producing 362 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque in the base model, and 416 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque in the performance model.
After Lang hands things off to Markus, he chats with co-founder and CEO Elon Musk and takes the Model S out for a spin in the city, on the highway, and in the twisties.
