Elon Musk’s Tesla pulled out a major surprise, by announcing an all-new electric sports car Roadster.
The expected announcement by fans was the design and specifications of the highly-anticipated electric lorry, but Musk decided to lift the lid.
Auto Express reports that the sports car boasts a 0-62mph time of just 1.9secs and a top speed of over 250mph. This means it easily beats the majority of today’s combustion-engined hypercars.
The new sports car is set to become the most efficient model in the Tesla range, the magazine says, as it’s expected to have a battery range of 620 miles. Prices start at $200,000 (£151,000), it adds, with deliveries due in 2020.
The roadster is Tesla’s second attempt at building a sports car. The company’s first product was a small electric roadster based on the Lotus Elise.
The Roadster, is expected to arrive in 2020 with a base price of $200,000 – and reservation page is up already, you just have to pay $50,000 to make a deposit. Yep!
