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?
