Elon Musk guaranteed a shock amid the Tesla semi uncovering occasion, and kid did he convey: the arrival of the Roadster. Be that as it may, it’s no encore.
TESLA’S NEW SECOND-GENERATION ROADSTER WILL BE THE FASTEST PRODUCTION CAR EVER MADE
The staggering four-seater roadster brags stunning numbers, that in the event that they measure up to Musk’s cases, will make it the world’s fastest generation auto. In his comments, Musk depicted it as a “smackdown” to the petroleum derivative dependent automobile industry.
The finale to his semi truck uncover was tied in with driving home that point. As the opening guitar licks of the Beastie Boys’ “Harm” impacted over the uproarious speaker, a light emission flashed over the parking garage. The second-age Tesla Roadster went to an unexpected end, and a smiling Elon Musk returned on the mic to present his most recent infant, which will probably make Porsche and Ferrari start to sweat.
Musk guaranteed the base model will complete 0 to 60 of every 1.9 seconds. Assuming genuine, that would make it the main generation vehicle to split the two-second limit. He likewise said the new Roadster would move from 0 to 100 mph in 4.2 seconds, and will clear the quarter mile in 8.9 seconds (in the event that the Fast and Furious race establishment comes calling).
“It’ll be speedier than that stream over yonder,” Musk joked, as a plane took off finished the jubilant pack packed into Tesla’s Hawthorne, California office.
As fans gasped, Musk said the Roadster had a 200kWh battery pack and a 620-mile range per charge, or over 1,000 kilometers. Again, another record shattered — or so Musk claims. Imagine driving from Los Angeles to San Francisco and back, without recharging, Musk teased.
The vehicle has three motors (one in the front and two in the rear), all-wheel drive, and torque steering.
