Tesla Model S To Sell For £54,900 ($88,000) In UK

model-s-epaThe Tesla Model S will have a starting price of £54,900 ($88,000) in the UK. With the UK’s £5,000 electric car grant, that comes down to £49,900 ($80,000).

Of course, that’s for the 60-kWh Tesla Model S. The 85-kWh Model S will go for £57,300 ($92,000) and the 85-kWh Performance Model S will go for a cool £68,700 ($110,000).

Why does the Model S cost so much more in the UK?

For one, there’s a much higher cost of delivery. Shipping over the pond ain’t cheap. Plus, there are import duties that must be covered. The UK also has a relatively high value-added tax. All of that adds up.

So, with those details out of the way, when will the Tesla Model S first hit UK shores? By March 2014, reportedly.
