If you haven’t seen the latest new “American” car company, then check out Tesla electric vehicles. Sure there has been a lot of talk about their super fast cars, but now they have sedan versions for anyone who wants an all American vehicle.
So let me get this right, a sedan that goes from 0 to 60 in 5.6 seconds, has a top speed of 125 mph, has an estimated range of 300 miles per battery charge, and has zero tailpipe emissions, amazing! Who would have though a roadster turned into a sedan could look this good too?
Now, if you want an eco-green vehicle that goes from 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds and flat out beats all comparative vehicles made, the Tesla Roadster electric sports car is what you are looking for.
At $101,500 after the federal tax rebate, this is not a car for the everyday driver. It’s the first new American car company since DeLorean. Tesla brings together our love and passion for fast cars, expensive toys, along with the latest technology, and environmental friendliness. While the Chevy Volt is expected to deliver about 40 miles between charges and the Nissan Leaf claims 100 miles between charges, Tesla drivers are getting 245-plus miles from its battery technology.
The Roadster’s body is made in England and shipped here for assembly with the U.S.-made powertrain components. The new Tesla Model S sedan will be built entirely in the United States, and will more affordable at $49,900.
The power in these cars comes from automotive grade lithium-ion cells that optimize energy density, and thermal management for safety. To recharge simple plug in their universal connector to a common 240-volt outlet, standard 120-volt wall outlets, or a charging station. Either do a quick charge for short hops, or an overnight charge for a full charge of mileage.
Tesla is the first American car company to go public since the Ford family issued common stock in 1956.
