Tesla Roadster Popularity and New Model S May Help Curtail California’s Jobs Hemorrhage

Car guys love the Tesla Roadster Sport. The new Model S may become a serious alternative to the lauded environmentally friendly Prius. As Tesla Motors expands, it might bring jobs to Downey for those able to work on an electric car.

Downey , California , May Benefit From Tesla Motors Unveiling of the New Model S

Although it is too early to count the chickens, there is talk that Tesla Motors applied to the City of Downy in the hopes of building a facility that will build its electric car. Tesla and the city — as reported by The Downey Patriot — are quick to point out that this is only the first step in cutting through a lot of red tape. Barring any unforeseen obstacles from the U.S.

Department of Energy, Tesla Motors may be bringing 1,200 jobs to California.

Tesla Roadster Sport, New Model S Demote Hybrid Toyota Prius to Grocery Getter

Tesla Motors does not mince words when it compares its Tesla Roadster to the Prius. Hailing the sporty electric car as being twice as efficient as the Prius, Tesla Roadster accelerates from zero to 60 miles per hour in 3.9 seconds and offers a 244 mile range. The 2010 Tesla Roadster Sport makes it from zero to 60 in 3.7 seconds and harnesses a 288 horsepower output.

A somewhat roomier (it seats seven people), four-door and calmer — but still sporty — Tesla Model S features an astonishing 300 mile range and accelerates from zero to 60 in 5.6 seconds. In comparison, the 2010 Prius accelerates from zero to 60 in 9.8 seconds and features a 1.8 liter, 98 horse power engine (which is actually 80 horse power, when running the electric motor). The best feature is the price tag: The Tesla Motors’ Model S retails for $49,900.

Tesla Roadster Price versus New Model S Costs: More Affordable = Larger Target Audience

The Tesla Roadster price tag of $109,000 was forbidding to the average eco-friendly consumer. The Tesla Motors Model S cost of about $50,000 does put it closer into the realm of possibility. Scuttlebutt from the 2010 Detroit Auto Show — as revealed by the Green Auto Blogger — has it that a $30,000 model is a couple of years away from being made.

Would this new model coincide with the opening of the proposed Downey manufacturing plant? Tesla Motors fans — and California’s unemployed — have high hopes.
