I don't know if this is the right place for this, but i just found this site and i say: "no more use for fossil fuel driven vehicles!!!"

The specs on this electrical car says it all... so now we can just focus on making energy production non-poluting!!


teslamotors

and a little movie to prove electrical cars accelleration:

electric car vs ferarri and porche i think

Now wouldn't it be interesting if theese electric car builders, would experiment with the rodin coil and other "new" electrical discoveries/theories? if they havent already?

Cool.

I want one


What's the price tag?

I think its like $100,000. I'm sure they are struggling to find ways to convert the normal gas pump into a electricity pump.. The reason we don't all have electric cars today, is cause they can't sell you gas and oil, and electricity, which you can get from the earth, would be free.

I was just listening to this yesterday.

I've seen this car mentioned on ATS before. They just named it after tesla; it doesn't use any tesla technology, or at least nothing that mainstream science denies. I'm sure it uses stuff Tesla developed, just as almost everything else electronic does.

Yes, I've had quite the morning wood for this car ever since I heard about it a year ago.

It's HOT.

100 % electric. Quiet. Clean. Drives 250 miles on a charge. Energy cost is equivalent to a car that gets 125 miles per gallon.

And FAST. 0 to 60 in 4.0 seconds.

Top speed: 135 mph (220 kph)

I want one, BAD.

Thanks for information, Bluess!


If it goes to 60 in 4 seconds, does that mean it will be 120 in 8 seconds, correct?

Again, thanks for your post.

You can actually see this car in L.A. from Nov 16 to 25.

Los Angeles Auto Show
November 16 to 25
Los Angeles Convention Center
The Tesla Roadster will be on display in the Yokohama booth
www.laautoshow.com

Look at that, so simple......

I mean, it looks nice and all, but I don't like the design of it, looks like the 20th century design, it needs to look more futuristic...

Apparently the first cars invented were of steam power (1769 by Nicolas Cugnot of France) followed by electric car (1830s by Robert Anderson of Scotland), then came the internal combustion engine closely resembling the modern day automobile (1885 by Karl Benz). inventors.about.com...

I think Ford in the 50's had a car that ran off of bio fuel (made partly from cannabis seed oil), from what i remember it was made from fibreglass as well but may have got that bit wrong.

There was a documentary a while back called “who killed the electric car”, was very interesting. You can probably find it on video,google if you are interested.

Just amazes me that there arent more Electric cars around. I know some people will argue that to create the electricity you need to create pollution but, if Tesla was right about his free energy ideas then


edit: oh and, dont internal combustion engines run at around 30% efficiency? even todays cars? actually, according to this site www.fueleconomy.gov... they run at only 15%

A modern coal-fired power plant, due to its size, is much cleaner and more efficient at generating power than the internal combustion engines installed in all the cars on the road.


Furthermore, an electric motor can be 90% efficient, whereas a heat engine in a car is only 33% efficient. 2/3 of the energy available in gasoline turns into heat.


Lastly, if the electricity comes from wind power or solar, practically NO pollution is introduced into the environment using electric vehicles.


It's a win-win. We as consumers need to put economic pressure on the transportation industry, voting with our dollars.


GM was the first to make an EV in the united states, but they didn't see it as economically viable in the long term, because they would lose a lot of their profits they get from maintaining the much more complicated gas-burning vehicles.


It would be like making something as simple as a fork out of 25 moving parts. How silly.


An electric car gets rid of 90% of the moving parts that an internal combustion engine has, reducing maintenance costs dramatically.
