The electric car super geniuses at Tesla Motors have released a sneak peek video of its pre-production Model S Alpha having a go around a test course. Tesla teases with test footage showing showing little more than sleek sportiness silently skimming the surface of the track, reports Auto Week.

The first premium all-electric sedan, the Model S is expected to hit the market mid-2012 year starting at $57,400 with "three battery pack options, providing from 160 to 300 miles per charge, depending on the battery pack. It is expected to qualify for federal and state incentives and car-pool lane permits," according to LA Now.
