Roadster to make its comeback in 2019
Elon Musk likes to keep giving exciting news about his line-ups, and he just released the most exciting one yet.
Tesla Roadster will be back on the road again in 2019. Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk said that it will be faster than “ludicrous.”
To give you a hint on how fast that is going to be, you need to know how fast “ludicrous” already is. When the Model S is on “ludicrous” mode, the EV could accelerate as fast as 60 mph in 2.8 seconds.
Tesla Motors’ became popular upon the release of its first EV, the Roadster, in 2008. It was the first of its kind to use lithium-ion battery cells. Production stopped in 2012, after selling more than 2, 400 Roadsters worldwide.
Musk confirmed the Roadster’s comeback in his latest blog dated July 17.
“There is of course one speed faster than ludicrous, but that is reserved for the next generation Roadster in four years: maximum plaid.”
The upcoming Roadster will be redesigned, borrowing none of the design elements that were featured in its 2008 version.
