The new Roadster is the most ludicrous Tesla yetThe electric automaker surprised us all, debuting a new EV supercar with unbelievable performance claims.
[MUSIC] You've asked us for a long time, when are you gonna make a new Roadster? We are making it now. [APPLAUSE] The new Tesla Roadster will be the fastest Car, ever made, period. This is the base model, okay, this is the base model. We're gonna talk about things that aren't base maybe next year. This will do 0 to 60 in 1.9 seconds. That is the fastest, this will be the first time that any car has ever broken 2 seconds in 0-60. It will be the fastest to 100 MPH, 4.2 seconds, to 100 MPH. It will go a quarter mile in eight point nine seconds. [APPLAUSE] This will be the first time that any car has broken nine seconds. Any production car has broken nine seconds or quarter mile. [APPLAUSE] These are all world records This is what we are achieving in the prototype. I wouldn't say what the top speed is but it's about 250 miles per hour. The range, this is going to have a 250 kilowatt per hour battery pack. [APPLAUSE] 620 mile range. That's a thousand kilometer range. This has been the first time an electric vehicle breaks a thousand kilometers. A production electric vehicle which have a more than a thousand kilometers in single charge At highway speed. [APPLAUSE] You will be able to travel from LA to San Francisco and back at highway speed, without recharging. [APPLAUSE] The point of doing this is to just give a hardcore smack down to gasoline cars. Cause they will have three motors so it's all wheel drive. One motor in the front, two in the rear, it'll do torque steering two hundred kilo-watt battery pack, ten thousand newton-meters of torque, do you know what that means, it's stupid. [LAUGH] It's also a four seater [SOUND] Yeah. So, two plus two, okay. You can't put giant people in the rear seat but you will put, okay. A giant person squash or small person fit in the back. [INAUDIBLE] will be available in 2020. [MUSIC]
