Tesla Roadster, the quickest car in the world is also electric
Tesla Roadster is put to the test demonstrating its powerful and record-breaking performance on the road.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk presented the next generation Tesla Roadsters this past November boasting impressive, seemingly record-breaking figures. “The point of doing this,” explained Musk “is to give a hardcore smackdown to gasoline vehicles.”
The Roadster announced a top speed over 250 mph (approximately 400 km/h) and torque of 10,000 Nm.
In June of this year, the Roadster was put to the test by professional test driver Emile Bouret who confirmed the car’s powerful capabilities. “Those are not theoretical. Those are not calculations. We have done those numbers,” commented Bouret in reference to the car’s 0-60 mph in 1.9-seconds specs from November. “I probably shouldn’t say this,” added Bouret, “but those numbers are actually conservatives. It’s going to be a proper weapon.”
This supercar is designed to maximize aerodynamic engineering with performance and efficiency. The car also comes with a glass roof that seems like an extension of the windscreen and can be removed for a convertible driving experience. The Tesla Roadster comes equipped with a 200 kWh battery pack with an energy capacity for 620 mile range. It is also the first car to establish every performance record while accommodating 4 passengers. The car has all-wheel drive and torque steering.
Prices for the Roadsters start at $ 200,000 USD with availability beginning in 2020.
