To make the world a better place with a completely clean and fresh environment, a group of engineers thought of giving its customers an electric motor car. So, Tesla contributed their fabulous effort in the making of an electric vehicle which is not only better, quicker but more fun to drive. This second-generation Tesla Roadster is not only the revival of Tesla’s first production model but its mindblowing performance has driven everyone crazy.
Whether you want to buy or not, you certainly need to know about the 5 insane facts about Tesla Roadster-
So what are we waiting for?
Let’s begin with No.5
As per the mileage, the Tesla CEO claimed a freaky skeptic remark on its speed. It covers 60 mph in just 1.9 seconds. To this Musk said proudly, “It will be the fastest production car ever made.” It’s not just the fastest car ever made but it’s a hypercar that can go from 0-100 mph in just 4.2 seconds and can complete a quarter mile in 8.8 seconds. Okay, not getting it? Let’s compare it with other supercars- the new 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon that has got 840 horsepower can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 2.3 seconds and can run a quarter mile in 9.65 seconds. So, basically, all the supercars say a Ferrari 812 Superfast, McLaren 720S and Lamborghini Aventador S, they all take about a second longer than the Tesla to complete 60 mph. Hence, you can well imagine how Tesla Roadster has proved unbelievable to be true.
Being the only successful battery car, Tesla Roadster has got many challenges to full-fill its features. Tesla Roadster has achieved such an unbelievable mileage because of huge 200 KWT hour battery pack. The roadster’s estimated range is 250 miles on a single charge. There are several electrical vehicles on the market today-starting the list from Nissan Leaf to the Mercedes Benz B class which uses large format lithium ion cells but here’s the shocking feature of Tesla whose battery pack is made up of thousands of inexpensive commodity cells that are very much similar to the ones used in your laptops.
Now, the biggest challenge of this electronic vehicle comes when you are enjoying your ride and then you are traveling through the most sparsely populated region and it’s time to plug in your car. The charging infrastructure is lacking in many parts of the country. Obviously, it’s impossible to take your garage along with you for a long road trip.
It becomes a problem especially for the urban apartment dwellers who rely on EV for such a long journey. But Tesla has solved this problem too by placing 480 stations equipped with 2705 superchargers around the world. The company has also offered a map to the travelers so that they can find out easily where to recharge.
When you buy a car, you have to maintain it. And you have to maintain more when you buy any electronic vehicle. Tesla has got one plus side. The scheduled maintenance is relatively simple than other supercars. You only need to replace the tires and wiper blades. This supercar has got excellent braking system-the car automatically slows by reversing the electric motor instead of applying friction which also charges the battery. A Tesla won’t need new brake pads anytime soon.
Tesla 2020 has gained more popularity than other supercars because of its price tag. Keeping all the astounding features in mind, the real kicker here is the price difference. Covering the top speed of 250 mph, the new roadster costs $200,000 whereas, Bugatti Chiron providing the top speed of 261 mph costs $3000,000.
