Electric sports car - Really ?

2008 Telsa Roadster:
  • 100% Electric
  • 0 to 60 in 3.9 seconds
  • 13,000 rpm Red-line
  • 135 mpg equivalent
  • 225 miles per charge
  • less than 2 cents per mile
Telsa Roadsters are being manufactured right now and after some delays, a huge internal shake-up and a couple price increases, the company will finally start delivering Roadsters to customers. The CEO was fast at pointing out that this is "the only zero emission electric vehicle in production today," which is pretty much a big lie. There are lots of people making electric vehicles in America. But it is the only one with a top speed of 125 mph. Though the $100,000 price tag is a bit steep, and Tesla will only be able to produce one or two cars a week (at least at first), 900 people have already reserved a Roadster. Included in that list are Dustin Hoffman, George Clooney, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Despite all of the uncertainty and delays along the way. Tesla motors has provided an alternative to the speed hungry consumers in today's green minded society.
