First Look Review: Tesla Roadster | Next Electric Car
I cover all the latest tech news surrounding electric cars. I cover the background, feel and drive the current selling price and the specs and engineering that go into making each car. If you have an electric car that youd like me to cover, let me know in the comments below in todays video im reviewing the upcoming second generation tesla roadster ill, be covering the most important features to see whether it crushes the competition or not, with its unreal Acceleration and promise to long range, oh and one more thing before i start my friend got his tesla stolen. I guess you can call it an edison now, okay, now back to the video, even though most model s and model x owners dont, remember it. The first tesla roadster placed the all electric car maker on the map. The new model was supposed to arrive in 2021, but it hasnt yet leading to it to be postponed. Elon musk stated in 2011 near the conclusion of the first tesla roadsters manufacturing cycle that a new version of the roadster sands, the lotus chassis, will be back in production by 2014.. In 2014. The new roadster was originally teased. It was also known as the tesla model r at the time musk proposed a new roadster in 2015, which would be capable of quicker acceleration. Elon musk said a second roadster was in the works in a tweet in december 2016, although it was still some years away. Franz juan holzen created the second roadster as musk put it.
The premise is as follows: the goal is to deliver a hard hitting rebuke to gasoline powered vehicles. A gasoline sports vehicle will feel like a steam engine with a side of quiche when driven those who paid the first 5000 of a 50 000 deposit to pre order. The car were given test drives during the occasion following the teaser tesla revealed further details, including the many world record speeds it claimed it was set. Elon musk revealed a potential feature of the roadster called spacex option package in june 2018. This would add 10 cold gas thrusters to the automobile to increase agility. It would consist of an electric pump that would replenish an air tank that would deliver compressed air flowing through propelling nozzles to provide a cold jet thrust. The air tanks would replace the back seats and are based on the composite over wrapped pressure. Vessel copv technology used in the falcon 9 and falcon heavy rockets, cornering acceleration, peak speed and braking would all benefit from the thrusters. The working pressure would be 10 000 pounds per square inch. 700 bar elon musk announced at the 2020 second quarter. Financial results conference called that tesla intends to construct a roadster in california with manufacturing beginning in the next 12 to 18 months. Production would begin in mid to late 2021. elon musk said in january 2021. That manufacturing would be postponed until 2022.. He stated that the business will complete the roadsters engineering in 2021 with the objective of having a candidate design drivable late summer.
Musk said in september 2021, that manufacturing would be postponed until 2023 in october must confirm the 2023 aimed during the 2021 shareholder meeting. Elon musk intends to build the worlds fastest automobile. The all electric tesla roadster will be the automobile with a 0 60 mph time of 1.9 seconds, a 0 100 mph time of 4.2 seconds, a quarter mile time of 8.8 seconds and a peak speed of nearly 250 miles per hour. A spacex options package will reportedly boost performance even further. The american supercar, which will wear the famous tesla face on an aerodynamically sculpted body, will combine record performance with record economy with the californian automaker aiming for a range of 620 miles. The roadster will also have four seats and a retractable glass top that can be stored in the trunk. Tesla is taking orders for the 250 000 dollar founder series vehicle, which has a basic price of two hundred thousand dollars and may be reserved for a cool. Fifty thousand dollars, to put it another way, the tesla model s played – will continue to be teslas fastest electric car for another two years. It would be fantastic to see the tesla roadster sooner and bidded against rimac nevera by test drivers to see if it can average the played. Anyway. All three new tesla evs have received timelines tesla, semi 2022 tesla cybertruck, 2022 tesla, roadster, 2023 design and engineering as an all electric supercar roadster leverages the possibilities of aerodynamic engineering resulting in performance and economy that are unparalleled in the automotive industry in order to enjoy driving In the open air, when convertible a lightweight detachable glass roof may be stored in the trunk, the second generation tesla roadster is a two plus two coupe that seats two people.
It was developed by franz von hulsen, tesla motors main designer, who was also responsible for the majority of the companys prior vehicles, the roadster sports, a two plus two seating configuration with the rear seats being smaller and accommodating two more passengers interior. Currently, the roadster is only a concept and ideas frequently undergo changes significantly as they progress through the development process into production vehicles. A detachable glass panel roof is included on the roadster concept, which can be stowed in the trunk of the vehicle. Given the roadsters highly sloped roofline, the back seats appear to be too small for people to sit comfortably in them. We expect teslas distinctive minimalist interior design to be carried over into space other than that. As designed, a big touchscreen runs the length of the dash and into the center console with a storage cubby beneath it. In the current tesla portfolio, there are no vehicles that are compatible with services such as apple carplay, android, auto or amazon alexa. We dont anticipate this to be any different with the roadster. According to the information available about the model 3 sedans infotainment system purchasers should not expect to discover am radio or siriusxm in the roadsters infotainment system in order to keep drivers occupied while parked and charging. We believe tesla will feature an onboard wi, fi hotspot, spotify integration and a variety of visual entertainment applications like netflix hulu and youtube to choose from performance while unveiling the new tesla roadster.
As a concept car. In november 2017, elon musk boasted about the vehicles, impressive performance, which includes a 1.9 second acceleration to 60 miles per hour and top speeds of more than 250 miles per hour. The car also has a quarter mile time of just 8.8 seconds, thats completely unacceptable for comparison. Assuming that the roadster maintains its 60 mile per hour pace, itll be a full second faster than its main competitor. The gasoline powered mclaren 570s during the same speech, musk also mentioned that the rollster will come standard with all wheel drive as well. This comes as less of a surprise as with teslas standard electric vehicles, which are two electric motors one in the front and one at the rear to drive all four vehicles. It seems to be the reason that the roadster will use the same configuration elon musk. The ceo of tesla has stated that the roadster would be available in 2023. Higher performance trim levels will be available in addition to the base specifications according to musk who tweeted that a spacex package would include 10 small rocket thrusters arranged seamlessly around the car. This package would allegedly allow for dramatic improvements in acceleration top speed, braking and cornering. Due to the 10 small rocket thrusters arranged seamlessly around the car. The roadster is equipped with three electric motors one in the front and two in the back, which provide all wheel drive as well as torque vectoring, while cornering in the vehicle.
Tesla said that the vehicles battery had a capacity of 200 kwh, which was double the capacity of the biggest battery found in a current tesla vehicle in the tesla model. S on model x, performance or long range, plus tesla said that the torque applied to the wheels was 10 000 nm 7 400 pound feet. In total. The rear wheels are significantly bigger in diameter than the front wheels as a concept vehicle. The national highway traffic safety administration, nhtsa and the insurance institute of highway safety iihs have not yet had the opportunity to conduct crash tests on the roadster. According to industry, sources, tesla will include all of the most up to date and cutting edge driver assistance technologies in the roadster, including its well known, autopilot, semi autonomous driving system. The following are important. Safety features with pedestrian detection standard automatic emergency braking is provided the standard lane departure warning system is combined with lane keeping assistance. Adaptive cruise control is available, as well as a semi autonomous driving option battery life. The 200 kwh battery is claimed to provide up to 620 miles of range, the longest driving range ever achieved by a production electric vehicle. However, that number will almost certainly only be achievable under very light use, hitting the track for a few flat out. Hot laps will significantly reduce the estimate, price and model range when it ultimately goes into production. The roadster will be a new addition to the tesla portfolio, reviving the brand that was previously used by the companys first model, which debuted in 2008 tesla claims that the standard roadster will be available for two hundred thousand dollars, with a limited edition, founder series model available For an additional fifty thousand dollars, i dont know what distinguishes the two versions other than the fact that only 1 000 founder series units will be produced.
If youre a collector, it could be worthwhile to spend the extra money, otherwise save your money, so that makes the base trim cost 200. 000. The founders edition trim costs 250 000. It is expected that the roadster will come with the same basic warranty package as the rest of teslas portfolio, which will include an 8 year warranty on the cars electric motors and battery pack. Among other benefits, it is unlikely that the tesla will have a complimentary planned maintenance plan, in contrast to competitors such as the audi r8 and the jaguar f type among others, tesla warranties include 4 years or 50 000 miles is the maximum length of the limited warranty. The powertrain warranty lasts for eight years, regardless of how many miles you put on it. There will be no free planned maintenance. This wraps up my review of the tesla roadster. Let me know what you think of it. Thank you for sticking it out through the very end of this video. Nothing helps out my channel more than yall watching the entire video.
