The Roadster Sport is ready to go on streets as Tesla Motors gave green light for orders for the high-performance sports car. The completely electric sports car, based on the world's leading all-electric vehicle.
Tesla Roadster Sport can reach 96 km/h (60 mph) in 3.7 sec and it features a hand-wound stator and increased winding density for lower resistance and higher peak torque.
The new vehicle is fitted with Yokohama's Ultra High Performance tires and, in addition, it received reworked suspension with adjustable dampers and anti-roll bars. This car can beat nearly anything in its price class yet it is twice as efficient as compact hybrid sedans.
If you refuse to compromise on performance or the environment, the Roadster Sport is your only option, said Michael van der Sande, Tesla's senior vice president of global sales, service and marketing.
The price for the upgraded Roadster Sport starts from $128,500 (€112,000). Tesla has released over 150 Roadster until now and more than 1000 people are on the waiting list. For those who didn´t receive their ordered Tesla Roadster now they can choose for the new Roadster Sport.
