Tesla roadster is the first all-electric sports car to hit the production line by the electric vehicle giant Tesla Motors, the brainchild of Elon Musk. It was officially revealed on July 19th 2006 in San Francisco International Auto Show.
The Roadster was in production from 2008 to 2012 during which a total of 2,400 were sold across 31 countries. The sports variant started rolling out in 2010. The roadster being the top-notch electric vehicle also gave a neck-to-neck battle to fuel-operated cars. It holds the World Distance Record of travelling 501 kilometer at an average speed of 40 kmph during the Global Green Challenge in Australia. Also, Tesla Roadster became the first electric vehicle to win the Monte Carlo Alternative Energy Rally and also the first to win any Federation Internationale de l'Automobile sanctioned championship which beat 96 other competitors.
