The Tesla Roadster, first unveiled in 2006 at a California car show, is one of the most coveted electric cars available in today’s market. Some of the impressive specs of this electric beauty are that it can travel approximately 250 miles on a single charge from its lithium-ion battery pack, accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds (faster than a corvette), and can fully recharge in less than 3.5 hours.

Some of the downers of this car include a hefty price tag at around $100,000, a $1,000 delivery fee, a battery pack that only lasts 100,000 miles and costs a whopping $36,000 to replace it, and the inability to travel long distances. Surely, this is a car for the rich and famous. Hopefully, one day it will become more practical for the every day driver.
