As noted at US news sites on Sunday, the 2013 Tesla Model S green car was unveiled in a special event at Fremont, California in front of a crowd who cheered and took photos of the new electric car.

“The oil companies said electric cars can’t work, but the truth is, they don’t want them to work. But here it is.” Elon Musk was quoted on reports, after he drove the Tesla Model S sedan onto the stage.

“They would say this car is the equivalent of a unicorn. Well, tonight you had the opportunity to ride a unicorn.” Musk added, who is also a co-founder of PayPal, as he exited the car along with four other passengers.

Apparently, three other passengers came out from the car including two children from optional rear-facing bucket seats and their luggage, and a man coming out from beneath the hood.

Meanwhile, the 2013 Tesla Model S was said to have an acceleration to up to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds, which is two-tenths of a second quicker than the 2011 Porsche 911 Carrera with a manual transmission.

In addition, there will be three battery options which include 160 miles (257 km), 230 miles (370 km) and 300 miles (483 km) on a full charge, and has a top speed of 130 mph.

According to reports, the 2012 Tesla Model S is sold out and the 2013 model is being set for mass release to roll out next year which may cost around $50,000 after tax.
