2020 Tesla Roadster Unveiling – Video
2.9-second 0-60 mph acceleration time and 4.2 seconds for the 0-100 mph sprint (that’s 0-97 km/h and -161 km/h, respectively).
These numbers would make the Tesla Roadster the quickest production car ever, and its top speed isn’t too shabby either. Musk refused to give us a clear figure, but he thought it was enough to say that it’s “over 250 mph” (400 km/h), and we tend to agree. That would make the Roadster the fastest production EV as well.
The Roadster should also make drag racing quite boring and repetitive. Knowing all too well that the quarter-mile time is just as important as a Nurburgring lap time, the Tesla CEO revealed the Roadster would clear the distance in 8.9 seconds, making it the first 8-second production car.
