Cnet announced this morning that Californian car manufacturer Tesla would start rolling out their Roadster electric car for sale to the public. I use the terms ‘sale’ and ‘public’ rather loosely in this context as one needs to consider that the cost of the all electric sports car is upwards of $100 000 and there is a waiting list that has been stretching for months already. The nippy little 2 seater does 0-100 km/h in under 4 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 2014 km/h. With a range of roughly 300km, the Tesla Roadster should be fine for most people to run around in for a day and then plug in for a charge at night.Charging the electronic sportscar takes about 3.5 hours.
I’m sure that we’ll be seeing a bad ass action movie featuring a Tesla Roadster in the not too distant future.
