Tesla Roadster Enters Production

One of my loves is renewable resources, solar power, and other technology really gets me excited, but one of the biggest issues plaguing the technology is its cost and appearance. The Tesla Roadster might be expensive, but it isn’t ugly.

tesla Tesla Roadster Enters Production

The Tesla Roadster is an electric car that has acceleration that can push you back into your seat so hard that you can’t move your head from the headrest, and it is going into larger production than the one hundred boutique, collector vehicles that were previously sold.

Tesla Motors is now taking orders for the 2009 run of the vehicle and already 900 cars have been reserved. I wonder how long it will be before I see one of these cars on my local streets, and if the continued sale of these cars will help promote the battery powered electric cars in our society once again.

  1. I like the idea of this – well it can’t hurt can it? The problem is, unless a major manufacturer gets behind the idea of more ‘eco friendly’ vehicles, then we’ll never see a vehicle like this enter the mass market. A shame really when it looks so good.
