Tesla Roadster 2.5 snags official 119 MPGe rating
So, what's this mystery vehicle that smokes the original Roadster's 111 MPGe rating? It's none other than the Roadster 2.5. The Roadster 2.5's government-certified window sticker shows 112 MPGe on the highway and 124 MPGe in the city, for a combined rating of 119 MPGe. That last number bests the original Roadster's rating by eight mpge. However, all of the other stats (i.e. annual fuel costs, approximate range and kW-hrs per 100 miles) remain unchanged.
Now, Tesla has secured the top two spots in the lofty MPGe club. So, when will a vehicle rise up to the challenge and knock the Roadsters from their perch?
