Next-gen Tesla Roadster accelerates faster

Tesla has recently released the very first details on the next generation of the Roadster, saying that the model can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph faster than before.

The Tesla Roadster has been around for quite a few years and now the carmaker is getting ready to release its second generation. But until the brand new Tesla Model S will hit the market, probably over the following years, the company’s vice president of sales, George Blankenship, has released the first details on it. When speaking with Autocar, Blankenship said that the second-gen Tesla Roadster will be able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in less than 4 seconds.

According to the company’s official, the new generation of the Tesla Roadster will be able to have a range of more than 200 miles (322 km) on a single charge. Sadly this is all we’ve got for the moment on the new generation of the Tesla Roadster and we will probably have to wait for the model to be unveiled to learn more about it. As a quick reminder, the Tesla Roadster is being assembled in Norfolk, England, and in California, U.S.A. The model is coming as a 2-door roadster, with a rear-mid engine and rear-wheel drive, with a single speed BorgWarner fixed rear gear. The EPA says that the Roadster can travel 244 miles (393 km) on a single charge, thanks to its lithium-ion battery pack.
