HAWTHORNE, Calif. (AP) - Tesla Motors has given the world a glimpse of what it hopes will be the family friendly car of the future.

Company CEO Elon Musk unveiled a prototype of the all-electric, 5-door sedan Thursday at the futuristic SpaceX rocket factory where it was designed.

Musk says the car will carry as many as seven people - five adults and two children - as far as 300 miles on a single battery charge.

The sticker price of the Model S is $49,900 after a $7,500 federal rebate for buying an electric vehicle.

Tesla hopes to start manufacturing and selling the car in 2011.
