We last mentioned
the Tesla Roadster a little over a month ago. Since then, there hasn't been much new information about this souped-up electric vehicle
except for rumors
and hopes. Today there's reason to go back and revisit this powerful EV because tonight is when we actually get to see what all the fuss is about because Tesla Motors
is unveiling the Roadster to the world. AutoblogGreen is going to be at the unveiling in Los Angeles and we'll have video and pictures up at midnight, if all goes well. For now, though, let's rehash what we know about the Roadster. The company says the EV can go from 0-60 in about 4 seconds, has a range of 250 miles a charge and gets the equivalent of 135 mpg. The motor's features are: "Tesla-designed 3-phase, 4-pole AC induction motor, rated at 248hp, max torque at 0 rpm; redline at 13,500 rpm" and is the result of four years of research and fundraising. That's what we know now. In a few hours we'll know a whole lot more. So remember to check back at midnight EST for your first look at the Tesla Roadster on AutoblogGreen.
