Tesla Roadster: Electric In Frankfurt
In mid-September at the Frankfurt Auto Show, the pure-electric Tesla Roadster was charged and ready to go with its 248 hp 3-phase electric motor with a 14,000 rev limit. Driving in normal conditions (mixed city and highway conditions in a range of temperatures) results in “real world” range of 244 miles per charge, though in Australia at the 10th annual Global Green Challenge a Tesla Roadster achieved 313 miles on a single charge.
The Tesla Roadster has a base price of $109,000.
