The New Tesla Roadster – The Fastest Production Car In the World

The New Tesla Roadster – The Fastest Production Car In the World

The original Roadster fizzled out with the ending of Tesla’s contract with Lotus back in 2012 … now 5 years later a new version of the Tesla Roadster has been revealed, and its speed puts all Supercars still using an old fashioned combustion engine to shame …

Tesla has managed to keep the introduction of a new and improved Roadster well under wraps. The announcement took everyone by surprise after it was included in the Tesla Truck unveiling.

Details are limited, but we know Tesla’s all electric supercar will be able to seat 4 and will be all-wheel drive. To become a convertible, the glass roof can be removed and stored in the boot.

How fast is the Tesla Roadster and how far can it go?

The Tesla Roadster will be the fastest production car in the world.

  • It will be able to go from rest to 60 mph in an amazing 1.9 seconds.
  • Top speed is reported to be over 250 mph
  • Range of 620 miles on a single charge

Not only is the Roadster the fastest car in the world, it also has the longest official range of any production electric vehicle to date. This means the Roadster is faster than all other supercars and can travel way, way further on a single charge than any other supercar can on a tank of fuel. This is achieved by using a 200kWh battery pack and 3 electric motors.
