Tesla Motors Inc. has officially revealed the new Tesla Roadster Sport where it has started accepting orders. The price of the Tesla Roadster Sport starts at $128,500 in the US and €112,000 (excluding VAT) in Europe where the deliveries start in late June 2009.
The Roadster is a high-performance all-electric, zero-emission sports car that has 15 % more peak power and accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds (3.9 seconds for the standard Roadster). To achieve this figure, the Roadster Sport comes with a hand-wound stator and increased winding density for lower resistance and higher peak torque. Other upgrades include Yokohama Ultra High Performance tires and improved suspension with adjustable dampers and anti-roll bars tuned to the customer’s preference.
According to Tesla Motors, 150 Roadsters has been delivered to customers and 1,100 customers are still in the waiting list. Whoever haven’t receive the Roadster may upgrade to the Tesla Roaster Sport.
