If there is one car in the world it would be a pleasure to review, it is the Tesla Roadster electric car, which has become one of the most talked about electric vehicles of the modern day. When we look at the headline grabbing figures which show it can do 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds, 211 miles per charge and has tailpipe emissions of zero, it is difficult not to be impressed. This is before we start to look at the classic sports car design of this vehicle which is not only the fastest electric vehicle in the world but also a status symbol amongst EV models.
Specifications of the Tesla Roadster electric car
So, where do we start with regards to the specifications for the Tesla Roadster? The features of this particular model, which will be covered time and time again in the future Tesla Roadster news, include instant torque, electric powertrain to give unimaginable handling and superb construction which takes in some of the strongest yet lightest elements available today. The ability to bring not only the latest electric power technology but also the latest aerodynamic, extremely strong and ultimately safe car design together has taken the Tesla Roadster into a different league.
The speed of the Tesla Roadster has been discussed many times in the various Tesla Roadster forums but if we say the top speed is 125 mph and, as we mentioned above, it can do 0 to 60 mph in under four seconds, who could fail to be impressed? The battery life of the Tesla Roadster is estimated at around seven years or 100,000 miles and comes with its own battery heater to ensure maximum efficiency at all times. This vehicle is able to produce 14,000 rpm, which is something that many electric car companies can only dream of.

The external design of the Tesla Roadster takes into account the latest aerodynamic technology, a number of filters to ensure smooth airflow, as well as the latest four-wheel independent suspension. The interior is also something to behold with an array of leather highly visible, the latest high-tech dashboard, air conditioning, power windows, cruise control as well as heated seats for those cold winter days. If you look at the vehicle from a safety point of view, no expense has been spared, with a number of sensors controlling the ABS system, front and rear crumple zones, side impact door beams together with airbags. There are also a variety of other restraints and safety measures inbuilt into the interior so you can relax and enjoy the experience.
The Tesla Roadster electric car has been the topic of discussion across an array of websites for some time now as the company continues to go from strength to strength. It was also recently announced that the company was trading cash flow positively, for a week at least, in what many see as a major milestone for the corporation. The company has an array of high-profile investors and indeed has received significant funding from the U.S. federal government.
There is very little in the way of criticism you can aim towards the Tesla Roadster and many believe that we will look back in years to come and see this particular vehicle as the car which broke the back of the electric car industry. While some are still sceptical about the evolution towards electric vehicles, and alternative power supplies, there is no doubt that we are well on the road to electric vehicles becoming the norm in the future. Even though the Tesla Roadster is something of a sports car for sports car enthusiasts the company has also released a number of vehicles into the mass market. Is Tesla covering all bases for the future?
