0 to 100 in 1.9 seconds is not fast enough
Tesla recently unveiled its new Roadster, an electric supercar which Elon Musk called “a hardcore smack to gasoline cars”. The Roadster boasts an acceleration time of 0-100km/h in 1.9 seconds. The all-wheel drive car also offers 10,000Nm of torque, with a top speed of over 400km/h.
Musk has now revealed the car may go even faster. He said the 1.9-second acceleration is the base model’s performance, and there will be a special options package that “takes it to the next level”. “Rocket tech applied to a car opens up revolutionary possibilities,” said Musk.
There is a question of safety with the increased performance, however, he noted.
