2020 Tesla Roadster Unveiled, Starts at $200,000

Tesla Semi takes a backseat to the next big thing

This just in…. the all-new Tesla Roadster was unveiled Thursday evening and delivered from the back of a Tesla Semi in Hawthorne, California.

But, you might want to hold on to your deposit money for now—at least until we get all of the details. Still, there are a number of paying customers who are willing to wait a few years for a new Roadster and happy parted with $50,000 or more to be the first in line for their dream machines.

Here’s what we know so far—Elon Musk claims it is the fastest production car ever made.

The new Tesla Roadster seats four, can rocket from 0-60 mph in 1.9 seconds, has a claimed top speed over 250 mph, and has a driving range of 620 miles.

Impressive? Sure sounds like it. And the price? Just a quarter of a million bucks for the founder’s edition limited to 1,000 reservations or $200,000 for a base model with a $50,000 deposit. Sure makes the Model 3 deposits look like pocket change.

Tesla says the second-generation Roadster is “The first supercar to set every performance record and still fit seating for four.”

Also we are told that the removable glass roof stores in the trunk for “an open-air, convertible driving experience.”

Stay tuned for more hype and details as it continues to unfold.

In the meantime, check out the latest Tesla news from our Motor City Blogman and Alex Nishimoto who attended the debut on Thursday night.
