    Tesla said Thursday that it has started selling a cheaper version of its Model S car in an attempt to make its electric vehicles more affordable for more people.

    The new version, called the Model S 60, starts at $66,000. An all-wheel drive version of the Model S 60 will start at $71,000. Both cost less that the current Model S 90D, which starts at $89,500.

    Tesla said that when tax incentives and gas-savings are taken into account, the Model S 60 will have an effective cost of about $50,000.

    The company says the Model S 60 can travel 200 miles per charge and has a top speed of 130 miles per hour.
