Offered for the first time in right-hand drive, the Model S boasts a maximum range of 310 miles. Deliveries are hoped to start from March next year, with orders for the congestion charge-exempt car being taken now.

The US manufacturer has previously had limited success in the UK with its first car, the Tesla Roadster, but with the addition of a new dealership and the much more developed Model S saloon hopes to change this.
