Elon Musk once again surprised the world. While supercar manufacturers competing in the number of “horses” and the number of cylinders, Tesla has officially unveiled the Roadster of the new generation. The automaker described dvuhdverka as the fastest production car on the planet. And we tend to believe him, because the acceleration from 0 to 100 kmh it is 1.9 s. once again spell – one and nine seconds. All. Point. Tesla Roadster is equipped with three electric motors. Two of them are responsible for the rotation of the rear wheel and one front. The total output of the motors is not known, but it is known that they feed from the battery with a capacity of 250 kilowatt-hours and a maximum torque of 10,000 Nm. Yes, this is not a bug. Ten thousand Newton.
From standstill to 96 kilometers per hour Tesla Roadster can accelerate for 1.9 seconds, and to 160 kilometers per hour in 4.2 seconds. A quarter of a mile Dogdore takes 8.8 seconds. The maximum speed of the model exceeds 400 kilometers per hour.
Still doubt the victory of electric cars? Then Tesla got another argumentik. Tesla said that the reserve Roadster when driving outside the city limits will be 992 kilometers. Note that this distance range no petrol luxury cars in the world. Such a distance could take only diesel “snail”.
Edition Motor1 claims that deliver the quadruple for the first time customers will begin in 2020. Prices for the model start from $ 200,000. To reserve a car for $ 50,000. In addition, the automaker will release 1000 copies of a special Roadster that will be called Founders Series.
Stop. Yes this is the price level sortirovka “consumer goods”! It seems that Musk, indeed, decided to drive the final nail in the coffin of the whole industry, the iconic sports car. Who now will take these soft and “slow” cars, and even for big money? I think, in many offices today was a rainy day.
