Tesla Mo­tors sur­prise pack­age


AT THE un­veil­ing cer­e­mony of their new Semi all-elec­tric truck, Tesla had a sur­prise await­ing the guests in the back of the truck—the Tesla Road­ster. While the Semi was sup­posed to be the high­light of the show, the Road­ster in­stantly stole the show. Tesla CEO, Elon Musk re­vealed that when launched in 2020, the car will be the fastest ac­cel­er­at­ing pro­duc­tion car and will have the abil­ity to go from 0-100kmph in just 1.9 sec­onds and do the quar­ter mile sprint in 8.9 sec­onds. The record for the fastest ac­cel­er­at­ing time till date is held by Tesla’s Model S at 2.28 sec­onds and the fastest quar­ter mile time is held by Dodge’s Chal­lenger SRT De­mon at 9.65 sec­onds. The bat­tery pack will en­able the new Road­ster to go on to hit a top speed of 250kmph and give it a driv­ing range of al­most 1,000km. The im­pres­sive ac­cel­er­a­tion is aided by the all­wheel-drive tech­nol­ogy, use of aero­dy­namic ad­vance­ments and light­weight con­struc­tion. The car will get a re­mov­able glass roof which can be stored in the boot. It has seat­ing ca­pac­ity for four adults.
