No, the 60kW battery pack model is $62,400 (after $7,500 tax credit) and the 85kW model is $72,400 (after $7,500 tax credit). The 85kWh Performance model is $87,400 (after $7,500 tax credit) - so, none are inexpensive. But, compared to similar size and performance cars, they are actually pretty reasonable.

The Mercedes S600 starts at about $160,000 and it gets 12/19 according to the EPA. The higher performance BMW 7 Series are about $140,000. Driving these fossil fueled cars will cost you about $40K per 100K miles.
