Elon Musk Reveals Tesla’s New Roadster “The Fastest Production Car Ever Made, Period.”

Last week, Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk made a surprise announcement that revealed the company has a very captivating addition to its works.

Tesla’s new Roadster was described by Musk as “the fastest production car ever made, period.”

In the initial announcement, it was unveiled this latest creation would accelerate from 0-60 miles per hour (100 km per hour) in 1.9 seconds with a maximum speed of over 250 mph.

This indeed makes the Roadster the fastest-accelerating car in existence.

The sports car also has the ability to travel 620 miles (1,000 km) on a single charge, features a removable glass roof and can seat four people.

However, there’s more to come, as suggested in a tweet from Elon Musk early Sunday morning:

Tesla’s Roadster will be available in 2020 at a price starting at $200,000.

Musk presented the news of the Roadster towards the end of an event that was supposed to be all about Tesla’s Electric Semi Trucks.

Adding shock value and stagemanship, one of the sports cars rolled out of the truck’s trailer.

The Semi truck will be available to travel 500 miles (Approx 805 km) on a single battery charge when fully loaded and drives 65 mph/105 km/h.

Production of the Semi trucks will begin in 2019.

It was revealed that reservations for both vehicles can be made with an initial deposit of $5,000.

In the case of the Roadster, a total of at least $50,000 is due within 10 days.
