The next-generation Tesla Roadster is yet to enter production, but the all-electric supercar is already capturing the interest and imagination of auto enthusiasts worldwide. Much of this interest stems from the Roadster’s potential, as it is a vehicle specifically designed — as Elon Musk put it — to “deliver a hardcore smackdown” to gasoline-powered cars.
Looking at the specs of the Roadster, it is evident that Tesla is dead serious about making the vehicle a class above the norm. Equipped with three electric motors, the all-electric supercar is capable of sprinting from 0-60 mph in 1.9 seconds, accelerating all the way to a top speed of more than 250 mph. The vehicle is equipped with a very sizable 200 kWh battery pack as well, giving it a range of 620 miles per charge. Few gas-powered cars in the market today can hold a candle to these specs.
