    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.

    Palo Alto, California-based Tesla Motors Inc. is taking orders for the new Model S 60 for delivery next month, according to its website.
