Tesla Motors announces new $60k sedan

The Governator, Arnold Schwarzenegger, announced just yesterday that Tesla motors has agreed to locate the production of its new Model S sedan within the State of California. The new electric powered 5 passenger sedan will go for around $60k ($35k less than Tesla's two seat roadster) and will be able to travel roughly 230 miles per charge. Now this is what I am talking about. I've always thought that electric vehicles offered us the quickest path towards energy independence. I was happy to hear that GM was investing in the plug in technology with the Chevy Volt, but at 40 miles per charge that vehicle is a joke next to the Tesla models. Tesla plans to start production of the new model sometime in 2010. An even cheaper vehicle with a price tag of around $30k is expected to be announced in the near future.
