Five things you need to know about the new Tesla RoadsterSurprise! This is new Tesla Roadster, a seemingly unbelievable contradiction of 600-mile range and world-moving acceleration.
At the unveil of the new Tesla Semi, Elon Musk gave attendees a sweet little treat. Here are five things you need to know about the new Tesla Roadster. The new Roadster boasts a claimed 620 miles of fully electric range, thanks to its 200 kiloWatt battery. There's a ridiculous claimed 10,000 newton meters of torque at its wheels. A quick conversion works out to 7,374 pound feet. Wait, what? With so much torque, 0-60 happens in just 1.9 seconds, with a quarter mile blurring by in just 8.9 ticks The Roadster features 3 e-motors, one at the front and two on the rear axle, which enables them torque vectoring both when accelerating and braking. It'll run you $200,000 with a $50,000 deposit, or for $250,000 you can get one of the first 1000 Founders Series reservations in the year 2020. The new Roadster makes some wild claims, but I must say, as those numbers are nutty but they're real. Check out our writeup on the Roadshow.com for even more pictures and details.
