“We’d all like to be greener but it’s just not practical is it? I mean, electric cars are so slow and boring. Ok for the school run, but really not exciting.”
Welcome to the 2009 Tesla Roadster.
Recharge time, once you’ve got to where you’re going, is about 3.5 hours — not much longer than it takes to charge your mobile phone, and no problem at all if you’re in a meeting or staying overnight. And the cost of refilling the ‘tank’ to get back home again is about $2.20. Yes, you can fill up your tank for about £1.50 — driving this car costs “about 1 cent per mile“.
Apparently, a favourite trick at Tesla Motors is to “invite a passenger along and ask him [or her, presumably] to turn on the radio. At the precise moment we ask, we accelerate. Our passenger simply can’t sit forward enough to reach the dials.”
Sounds good to me. How long till Christmas?
