Starting Wednesday, Tesla will stop selling the old base Model S called the 60 and replace it with the 70-D. The new car can go 240 miles per charge and from zero to 60 in 5.2 seconds.

FILE - In this Friday, June 22, 2012 file photo, Tesla CEO Elon Musk walks past the Tesla Model S after a news conference at the Tesla factory in Fremont, Calif. Five states are on the short list for a $5 billion factory that Tesla Motors plans to build so it can crank out batteries for a new generation of electric cars. The package of economic incentives that each state offers will help determine where Tesla builds the factory — Nevada, California, Texas, Arizona or New Mexico. Tesla CEO Elon Musk has said the winning state will shoulder about 10 percent of the total cost, meaning at least $500 million worth of incentives. (AP Photo/Paul Sakuma, File)

FILE - This June 22, 2012 file photo shows a Tesla Model S driving outside the Tesla factory in Fremont, Calif. Electric-car company Tesla Motors has filed notice it intends to sue New Jersey over a ruling that would stop it from selling its vehicles in the state within two weeks. Palo Alto, Calif.-based Tesla claims it was unfairly targeted in March 2014 when the state Motor Vehicle Commission amended its regulations. The regulations require new-car dealers to have franchise agreements before they can be licensed. That prohibits companies from using a direct-sales model as Tesla does. (AP Photo/Paul Sakuma, File)
