Features & Specs
The AC induction motor and single speed gear box create instant torque from 0 rpm. Up to 295 lbs/ft of torque and 300 horsepower are produced as the car smoothly accelerates from 0 to 97 kph in 3.7 seconds.
The electric powertrain enables unprecedented responsiveness. The Roadster becomes an extension of the driver and reacts in an instant. The optional custom-tuned suspension allows the driver to adjust the handling to their preference.
The hand-built, carbon fiber Roadster sets the mark for premium electric cars to come. The monocoque chassis, constructed of resin-bonded and riveted extruded aluminum adds rigidity and strength to the lightweight package.
The Roadster offers supercar performance without supercar emissions. Engineered for efficiency, the zero-emissions Roadster can drive 340 km (based on European Electric Vehicle Combined Cycle) per charge. It plugs into nearly any outlet, anywhere in the world.
375 volt AC induction air-cooled electric motor with variable frequency drive.
