Report: Tesla Model S sedan deliveries to begin next month

Tesla yesterday reported a first-quarter net loss of $89.9 million compared to $48.9 million a year earlier. However, the electric-car maker has some good news – it said that it will start delivering the Model S electric-sedan to customers next month, much earlier than the company had originally planned.

Tesla said that once it finishes crash tests required by U.S. safety regulators, it can start delivering the Model S to customer in June.

“Once we complete and document the tests, we will be able to sell our vehicles in the United States,” Chief Executive Elon Musk said in a letter to shareholders.

The company expect 90 percent o the company revenue this year to come from sales of the Model S. It plans on delivering 5,000 units of the Model S by the end of 2012 but has reservations of more than 10,000.

Refresher: The Tesla Model S sedan can be recharged from any 120v, 208v or 240v outlet. Depending on which Model S trim-level you chose, the all-electric sedan will provide you with a total range of 160, 230 or 300 miles per charge. 0 to 60 comes in just 5.6 seconds with a top speed that is limited to 130 mph. Pricing is expected to come in at $49,900 after a federal tax credit of $7,500. A $5,000 reservation fee is required but is refundable.
