The Tesla roadster has grabbed my attention recently after seeing it highlight on top gear and in several publications. Its not hard to see that with vehicles like this becoming a little more user friendly and refined that the internal combustion engine may infact start to phase out within the next 10 years. Electric and hydrogen fuel cells powered vehicles are becoming a little bit more sought after in the markets to tackle the costs of fuel.

The tesla roadster itself is based loosely upon a lotus chassis and shares a good likeness to the lotus elise. The standard all-electric Roadster develops 248bhp and hits 60mph in 3.9 seconds. The Roadster can travel 244 miles (393 km) on a single charge of its lithium-ion battery pack with a reported efficiency of around 120mpg. tesla claim it to be 90% efficient.

Tesla have chosen construct the body panels using resin transfer molded carbon fiber composite to minimize weight, making the roadster one of the cheapest cars to feature an entirely carbon fibre skin.

I look forward to coming across my first Tesla roadster.
