Tesla Roadster

This year will see the launch of a fully-electric sports car that is both fast and looks amazing. Tesla Roadster prototypes have been able to accelerate from 0-60 mph in under 4 seconds, and reach a top speed of over 130 mph. Additionally, the car will be able to travel 245 miles on a single charge of its lithium-ion battery. Now, that sounds like a good deal. Of course it costs about $100,000 and it’s only available in the U.S and only left-hand drive so it’s not like we are going to see a lot of these on the road but still it’s a good start…
