Tesla Roadster 2020

Tesla’s first car was the Roadster which successfully proved electric cars could be fast and fun. Now the next generation Tesla Roadster has been unveiled and the performance numbers are out of this world. Let’s start off with a 200 kWh battery pack, resulting in a 0-60 mph time of 1.9 seconds, 0-100 mph in 4.2 seconds, the standing 1/4 mile in 8.8 seconds and a top speed above 250 mph. Those are some very heady numbers, and Tesla claims to back it up with an all-electric range of 620 miles, making the new Roadster the first production electric car to surpass 1,000 kilometres on a single charge.

Styling cues seem to indicate the next step in the familiar Tesla look, with the 2020 Roadster continuing the design language of the current models, whilst pushing into a sleek profile. Like the original Roadster the roof is removable as a separate Targa style piece, and this time the car will seat 4 people with two small seats in the back. It remains to be seen if Tesla will be able to get the new Roadster on the road by 2020 as their recent production track record is littered with hiccups and delays. Customers can pre-order already with a $50,000 deposit required.
