CNET's Charles Cooper and Wayne Cunningham talk about who will be watching as Tesla rolls out its new electric car tomorrow.

Welcome to CNET inside scoop on Charlie Cooper from CNET news.com. And I'm here with. CNET car tech's resident expert Wayne Cunningham Wayne you're going down to Tesla Motors tomorrow Friday. Big announcement. What can we expect. Well they're gonna start deliveries in their model S sedan as the first real car they're actually manufacturing. The Tesla electric car manufacturers started by Elon Musk. They were selling roadster is the small little electric cars but those -- more a proof of concept. So this -- actually going to be the one that they've actually built manufactured from the ground up and the first deliveries are starting Friday. Now I've actually been able to drive the roadster which was hello fine but. This new version of -- Tesla technology does that compare win the roadster. While the drive train is fairly similar -- mean they use the roadster to develop that the drive train from the model last. But the car is completely different the model of the -- -- is a big luxury sedan. And that such as and the price is the top ones -- the ones they're actually delivering that tomorrow are going for around 90000 dollars 95000 dollars. But the prices actually go down and -- the have some cheaper ones that they'll be selling by the end of the year although I think right now all the ones that -- plan on manufacturing are spoken for OK and the low end model of we can talk about low and for a Tesla is around 50000 dollars yet 50000 dollars in their -- literally interest in with pricing actually pricing them based on range so the size of the battery pack actually determines the price of the car. Which pretty much get the same features no matter what to trim level you go for. But when you get the cheapest one it'll have a range of -- 150 -- -- 150 miles herself. Out when you get up to the top level one the cost the most and you get a range of wild EP ranges to and it's 65 miles although -- says you can probably -- about 300. OK last question can we expect anything in the way of rebates because even a 50000. Dollars that's still. But a -- of a -- in your wallet. A yellow looked better rather the federal government offers a tax credit of 7500 dollars based on the fact that -- the size of the battery and everything and all the Tesla model lessons will call -- -- that. That tax credit and -- kind of depends on your own tax situation -- apply and a lot of state governments actually offered different kinds of incentives thanks -- For CNET -- Charlie Cooper thanks for watching.
