New Tesla Roadster 2.0 set to be the world’s most powerful production car, with up to 10,000Nm on tap
Tesla is not a company to rest on its laurels. They are constantly pushing the limits of automotive design and technology, and now they’ve pushed the boundaries with a new sports car concept, the Tesla Roadster 2.0, a car that could very well be the world’s fastest and most powerful production car. Ever.
Power will come from three electric motors that will allegedly produce a combined neck-shattering 10,000Nm of torque. The three electric motors will feed off a 200kWh battery pack, which has twice the power of the power back the propels the already bonkers Tesla Model S P100D.
The Tesla Roadster 2.0 is said to demolish the 0-100km/h sprint time in just 1.9 seconds, it’ll complete the quarter mile in 8.9 seconds and it’ll supposedly whir on to a top speed of 400km/h. That’ll have Koenigseggs worried.
Owners shouldn’t have to worry about electric car range anxiety either, with the Roadster 2.0 capable of in excess of 1,000 kilometres of highway driving range.
The Roadster 2.0 will feature a 2+2 cabin layout and as the name suggests, the option of open air motoring.
There are no further details on pricing or technical specifications, but production should start around 2020.
