Tesla Roadster window sticker
On November 22nd of 2010, the Nissan Leaf received a 99 MPGe rating on its official EPA window sticker. Then, on November 24th, the Chevrolet Volt got its official 93 MPGe rating. Now, there's another plug-in that has cemented its place in the lofty MPGe club and it goes by the name of Tesla Roadster. With an official EPA rating of 111 MPGe, the Roadster is, at least for now, the MPGe king. Repeat after us: no production vehicle currently beats the Roadster's official, EPA-assigned 111 MPGe rating.
The Roadster's government-certified window sticker shows 105 MPGe on the highway and 116 MPGe in the city, with a combined rating of 111 MPGe. Additionally, the EPA-approved label says the Roadster can travel about 245 miles on an eight-hour charge. That's the same number that Tesla uses in its own range claims.
The EPA released the official window sticker for the Tesla Roadster at an event in Palo Alto, CA on Wednesday afternoon.
