In 2017 when Tesla created a shock expose at an event originally deemed for its semi-truck unveiling: the new Tesla Roadster 2020.
The audience in attendance went wild and the internet fast exploded. And then Tesla CEO Elon Musk exposed the Roadster’s amazing specs: 0-60 mph in 1.9 seconds, 0-100 mph in 4.2 seconds, and a top speed in excess of 250 mph. Range? Try 621 miles on a single charge, a figure that’s virtually unheard of currently.
But Musk has just reiterated that range in the course of a recent Twitter exchange. Another person asked him whether the new Tesla Roadster will still achieve that specific range?
Оn that Musk responded: “Range will be higher than 1000 km”.
Do the fast conversion and 1 000 km is exactly 621 miles. That means the range is in excess of 621 miles. It seems hard to believe that but we don’t feel this is something Musk would lie about. Tesla has also never unsuccessful to deliver on its range claims.
Production start-out dates and deadlines? Sure, but never range figures. It’s most likely most effective to look at the second-gen Roadster as Tesla’s new halo model.
Here will be presented the company’s latest technologies which open the way for mainstream future vehicles, specifically the next Model S. Keep in mind, the Model S will soon have contenders to deal with, specifically the Porsche Taycan and Audi e-Tron GT.
Both have big plans for the Model S, and Musk is completely conscious of that. The Tesla Roadster will be a demonstration of what his company can do which will make competitors work harder than ever. When in 2020 will the production-spec Roadster make its debut look?
Tesla has not yet given the exact date but we think the automaker should also focus on getting its Model Y into production first. In the very near future, it is expected and a pickup truck.
But the new Tesla Roadster sounds too fantastic to be real every way. We’ll just have to wait and see.
