The 292-hp Tesla Roadster is powered
From 0 to 100 km / h in 4.2 seconds - without any fuel consumption. That beautiful and especially fast sports cars have to drive with conventional petrol does not necessarily prove the Californian automaker Tesla Motors. With the help of risk-taking financiers, like the Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, the company developed a 292 hp electric roadster.
Electric cars? These are all lame golf carts. Wrong! The Tesla Roadster proves that electricity can also be sporty. That the technology was not yet penetrated, worth U.S. critics as a conspiracy. Engineers call counter-arguments. The success has surprised even the developer: No sooner has the Californian sports car manufacturer Tesla (slogan: "Burn rubber, not gasoline") announced the production of a new roadster was the first series sold out. 100 conviction placed orders a car for $ 100,000, which comes only next summer on the market and does not fit the typical American way of drive.
