A Tesla Model S for hoi polloi? Not quite, but the luxury electric vehicle maker apparently has started deliveries of its "middle-ground" sedans fitted with 60-kWh batteries, Green Car Reports says, citing threads from the online Tesla Motors car club.

Tesla hasn't yes confirmed 60-kWh Model S deliveries, which has a base price of $62,400. That's a $10,000 "discount" from the 85-kWh versions already on the road. The trade-off is a single-charge range that's about 75 miles less than the 285-mile range of the top-of-the-line battery. For buyers who want to spend even less, the better news is that Tesla's 40-kWh version should start deliveries by the middle of 2013, offering a single-charge range of about 145 miles (and no Supercharging) for another $10,000 less.

Earlier this month, Automotive News reported that Tesla was on the verge of hitting full production capacity of 400 new vehicles a week, about double Tesla's pace three months ago. The Model S won the Motor Trend Car of the Year award last November.
