Tesla teases 2020 Tesla Roadster

At a press gala last night, Elon Musk debuted the new Tesla Semi. In typical Steve Jobs fashion, there was a “one more thing” that got the crowd hot and bothered. The new, second-edition Tesla Roadster made an appearance and is predicted to enter production in 2020.

Here are some of the key stats on the new Roadster; 620 miles of range, 0-60 mph in 1.9 seconds, top speed over over 250 mph. All of that is apparently possible with 3 electric motors in an all-new, and unique to Tesla, platform.

Tesla is taking pre-orders now for the new Roadster that Musk claims will enter production in 2020. The base Roadster is $200,000, with a $50,000 deposit required when ordering. A Founders Series version, limited to 1,000 units, also is available for $250,000. If you’re interested in that, the full $250,000 is required when the reservation is made.

Over the next few days we’ll be providing some more analysis on both the Roadster and the new Semi. Stay tuned.
