Tesla Drops Hints of Next Electric Car
HALF MOON BAY, Calif. — Following the introduction of its first electric car, startup Tesla Motors on Monday (Jan. 8) dropped hints about a next-generation sports sedan for the 2009 time frame.
The electric car startup is also looking to manufacturer the sedan in the United States and is seeking a new round of venture capital funding.
Last year, Tesla Motors (San Carlos, Calif.) rolled out its first electric car, dubbed the Tesla Roadster. The electric-powered Roadster boasts the equivalent of 135 miles per gallon and a range of 250 miles on a single charge. Based on an off-the-shelf lithium-ion battery, the electric sports car is capable of accelerating from 0-to-60 miles per hour in about four seconds.
