The Tesla Roadster Electric Motor Car

Have you heard about the Tesla Roadster electric car? It has been around for a while now and they are finally producing the vehicle and getting them on the road. It was originally conceived as an electric car with attitude, hoping to break the stereotype. I believe they succeeded and it looks like they have a winner!

Here are some quick facts:
- 100% Electric
- 0 to 60 in 3.9 seconds
- 14,000 rpm redline
- Burns no oil
- 244 miles per charge
- Pennies per mile

The biggest downside to the Tesla Roadster is its price, which is about 100 grand. And you only have two seats, which limits the cars applications. However, this was never meant to be a family sedan but a serious sports vehicle. So for pure fun and driving enjoyment, I believe the Tesla Roadster has succeeded.

Tesla has announced a four door family sedan that will be offered next. The MSRP for this all electric vehicle is supposed to be around 60 grand. I would love to have one!
