Tesla Roadster to debut in 2024; Claims 0-60 mph in under 1 sec

Tesla is aiming to begin deliveries of the Roadster in 2025.

According to reports, the production version of the Tesla Roadster is finally set to be unveiled later this year.

Elon Musk, CEO, Tesla took to social media platform X (formerly Twitter) to announce that the brief for the car has "radically increased" and promises that "there will never be another car like this".

Elon Musk even went on to claim that Tesla Roadster will be capable of sprinting from 0-60 mph (0-98 km/h) in less than 1.0 second. This is a drastic increase in performance compared to the specifications released back in 2017 when it claimed a 0-60 mph time of 1.9 seconds, 2.3 seconds to reach 100 mph, a top speed of over 250 mph and a driving range of 620 miles (1000 km).

The specifications of the production version Tesla Roadster are also significantly quicker than the Rimac Nevera, which sprints from 0-62 mph in 1.95 seconds - currently the world's fastest accelerating production car.

With the unveil scheduled later this year, Tesla is aiming to begin deliveries of the Roadster in 2025.
