Tesla's electric cars are now available in Ireland ... prices start from €81,000
Tesla says autopilot capabilities can be enabled in the vehicles to make motorway driving safer.

TESLA’S ELECTRIC VEHICLES – the Model S saloon and long-range Model X SUV – are now available to customers in Ireland.

The Model S can accelerate from zero to 100km/hour in 2.7 seconds and can drive up to 542km on a single charge.

The Model X accelerates from zero to 100km/hour in 3.1 seconds.

Prices start from €81,086 for the Model S and €110,042 for the Model X.

Tesla says both vehicles “come standard with active safety features for all customers, and additional autopilot capabilities can be enabled to make motorway driving safer and more enjoyable”.

“Tesla makes the only cars on the road that continue to get safer, smarter and more capable over time, thanks to free over-the-air software updates which roll out regularly to customers.”

Ireland has more than 1,200 public electric charging points throughout the country.

New Tesla owners can qualify for incentives including the lowest rate of motor tax, reduced vehicle registration tax and a Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland grant of up to €5,000.
