Tesla roadster hits 245 mile range

Amazing for an all-electric sports car!


Our EPA combined range of 245 miles is the result of an intensive engineering effort to maximize efficiency and provide the highest-possible range without compromising the Roadster’s other key attributes. We are now in the process of certifying these results so you can expect to see them on our window-sticker as soon as production starts.

Note also that the improved efficiency of the Tesla Roadster has provided other benefits – recharge time-per-mile and electricity cost-per-mile have been reduced, while the overall battery lifetime mileage has been improved.

Overall, we are incredibly proud to have developed the highest-range production electric vehicle in history with a result that is very close to our original claim — all while retaining the performance of a world-class sports car.

I would love to get my hands on one for these for an afternoon... 248 horsepower, very lightweight, and, because of the drivetrain (electric motors), torque is available from 0 RPM, i.e. instant full acceleration!

Only $100K too. A bargain to be sure.
