Chances are, if you are reading this ad, you already know how much fun you can have while being eco-friendly! This Electric Blue, Tesla Roadster Sport comes to us from a local owner who purchased the car at the Tesla dealer in Menlo Park, California. With an Manufacture Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $151,0000 this electric bungee-cord of a car is a unlike anything you will ever drive. The AC induction motor and single speed gear box create instant torque from 0 rpm all the way through the power band at 14,000 rpm. Up to 295 lbs-ft of torque and 288 horsepower are produced as the car smoothly accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds. The car is eerie quiet and will have you scratching your head how such a technical marvel was even created, let alone go this fast.
This desirable Electric Blue model 'S' Roadster was purchased with over $20,000 in carbon fiber upgrades from the dealership. Many of the other Teslas on the market simply have a canvas soft top or color-matched louvers and hardtop. Carbon Fiber draped parts include roof, front splitter, rear spoiler, read diffuser, and hood air vents. All of that carbon fiber gives the car an aggressive look and really accentuates the stunning blue paint and black powder coated wheels. The 'S' model will accelerate at a faster speed than the regular roadster thanks to coils that are wound much tighter to work with the 14,000 rpm motor that is installed.
The odometer currently reads just over 8,500 miles and both the 220 and 110 chargers are included with the purchase. Please give us a call to learn more or to schedule a visit to our indoor showroom.
Quoted from Edmunds.com
The Tesla Roadster is an all-electric car with a range of 227 miles under judicious driving (although as a sports car, that could be difficult to accomplish). Using Tesla's High Power Connector recharging device, it takes 3.5 hours to refill the lithium-ion batteries from near-empty. With only 2,750 pounds to lug about, the 240-horsepower electric motor provides a rush of seamless power, bringing the Roadster up to 60 mph in about 4 seconds. Plus, it does it with the eerie quietness of a Prius in all-electric mode.
Aside from going fast, the Tesla's Lotus-based chassis allows it to be one of the finest-handling automobiles you can buy. Thanks to the aft positioning of the electric motor and battery pack, the Roadster's weight distribution is even more rear-biased than the Elise's -- 35 percent front/65 percent rear, compared to 39/61 for the Lotus. The manual steering that is a pain at low parking speeds nevertheless contributes to excellent steering feel and control.
And then there are the environmental benefits. The Tesla Roadster produces no emissions on its own, though electricity produced by coal- or natural-gas-fired power plants obviously has associated emissions. Because of the Roadster's highly efficient nature, however, Tesla claims the associated carbon dioxide emissions would only be about a third of those for a popular hybrid car.
375 volt AC induction air-cooled electric motor with variable frequency drive.
Single speed fixed gear. Reverse drive uses reverse direction of motor, limited to 15 mph.
Custom microprocessor-controlled lithium-ion battery with 6,831 individual cells. 3.5 hour charge time from empty to full using the Tesla High Power Wall Connector at 240 Volts and 70 Amps
