In 2007, Tesla will offer the Tesla Roadster, a $100,000 electric car.
Despite that hefty price tag, Tesla Motors hopes the two-seater will have far more drawing power than previous EVs, including the General Motors EV1 reports thecarconnection.com.
The Roadster claims 0-60 mph times of just 4.0 seconds, a top speed of 150 mph and a range of at least 200 miles on the highway and 270 miles in stop-and-go urban driving. Using the U.S. government's calculations, the carbon fiber-bodied vehicle will get the "equivalent" of 130 miles per gallon.
