  •  Model X is next one (5+ / 0-)

    and it is I believe slated to hit the market this year.  Supposedly after that they'll roll out 2 new models a year and they will be more affordable.  The plan was always to roll out the higher priced cars to make some money which could be used to build more affordable ones.  This is completely new technology in many ways.  Tesla built the Model S from scratch.  So it's understandable that they would want to recoup some of their costs.  I think in 5 years or so the technology will be so far advanced from today and the market will have grown so much that by then the new EV cars rolling out will blow the Model S away in terms of range, price and enjoyment.  But still this is an exciting step in that direction and I whole heartily applaud Elon Musk for taking that step despite the naysayers.
