Elon Musk Unveils Tesla Semi-Truck and "One More Thing" - The New Roadster. Pix and Video
Elon Musk unveiled his new Tesla project this week: The semi-truck. Impressive enough with a range of over 600 miles on a 30 minute charge and a sub 6 second 0-60 time (with a trailer). Yada, yada, yada.
Then, in a surprise move, he added his “one more thing” moment – The new Roadster. Now this could be something.
SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO....
Billed somewhat optimistically as the “world’s fastest car” the new model is claiming some outstanding performance figures:- How about 0-60 in 1.9 seconds, 0-100 in 4.2 seconds and a 1/4 mile in 8.9 seconds before reaching a top speed of 250mph? Watch out Bugatti and Koenigsegg, here comes the “smackdown”. Or not — Remember, these figures are from the manufacturer and have not been verified by a third-party test.
However, Tesla has a good record when it comes to performance so let’s wait-and-see. Production is slated for production in 2020 and you can claim ‘first’ dabs on the initial 1000 production run with a mere $50,000 deposit. Final cost should be in the $200 - 250K range.
