Tesla Motors is on a remarkable run for a company that not long ago seemed to be sputtering.

The luxury electric-car maker’s flagship sedan, the Model S, won Motor Trend’s 2013 car of the year honors, then earned a rare, near-perfect rave from Consumer Reports.

In the past month, Tesla’s stock value has doubled to more than $90 a share. That gives the California-based company a total market value of $10.6 billion, greater than that of Italian automaker Fiat, worth less than $8 billion.


Tesla Model S will start at around $50K depending on battery pack capacity and other options.

Tesla new sedan achieved an EPA 2-cycle range of 320 miles and a 5-cycle range of 265.

Tesla will begin official deliveries of the Model S starting on June 22, 2012.
