David Letterman Interviews CEO of Tesla and Brings the S Model on His Show

The New Tesla Sedan Rolls Onto The Late Show

We've all seen the red hot Tesla Roadster plastered on the pages of geeksugar a time or two, and they have quite the following in the celeb world (stars like Will.I.Am and George Clooney drive them). But for most of us, the cost (which is upwards of 100 grand) is way too much cash to fork over for an all-electric vehicle. Thankfully, Tesla recently unveiled their new S model, which comes with a much lower price tag — about $50,000.

Although the price is still too rich for my blood, I like where this is going. As you may know, the electric car has been around for quite some time, and became well-known in the 1990s when the General Motors EV1 hit the streets, boasting up to 130 miles per charge. But seriously folks, the EV1 wasn't as hot as this car! Check out David Letterman's interview with the CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, and get a look at the car in motion (the Tesla S is the first car to be driven on Letterman's stage, since it releases zero emissions) in the clip above.

You can also find out more details about why electric motors have taken so long to be affordable, and some interesting info about the development of electric cars in the full segment over on YouTube.
