Elon Musk promised a surprise at the semi truck unveiling event, and left everyone awestruck with the new Roadster. Claimed to be the quickest production car in the world, this isn’t a repeat performance by Tesla. The brand new version of Roadster, as described by Musk, is a smackdown to the auto industry that is still largely dependent on fossil fuel. So, what is it that makes the new Roadster a true supercar and a tough competition for other manufacturers? Let’s take a look.
The Roadster will accelerate from 0-60 mph in mere 1.9 seconds and 0-100 mph in 4.2 seconds. The quarter-mile acceleration of the car is 8.8 seconds.
The good-looking, four-seater Roadster is a convertible with a removable glass roof, which can be stored in the trunk.
Though the top-speed of the Roadster isn’t revealed yet, it is expected to be above 250mph.
The Roadster will have a 200 kWh battery pack that will cover 620-mile per charge, which means you can take this amazing ride from Los Angeles to San Francisco and come back in a single charge.
Expect to pay a small fortune to own the new Roadster. Tesla has revealed that the base price of the car will be $200,000 with a deposit of $50,000. Besides this, Tesla will launch only 1000 Founder Edition models that will cost $250,000.
The new Roadster is an all-wheel drive with one motor in front and two in the rear and a torque steering. If Tesla is able to deliver on its tall promises, the new Roadster might be able to silence petrol and diesel variants in the market. The company might not deliver the new Roadster until 2020, which indeed is a long waiting period. In the meanwhile, you can get the Tesla feel by buying a used or salvage car from AutoBidMaster.
