Tesla Motors, the Silicon Valley electric car start-up, says it will begin production of its delayed Roadster model on March 17.

The company said late Wednesday that it has secured all emission and safety certifications for its first vehicle.

Due nearly a year ago, the delivery of the Roadster has fallen behind schedule because of a series of manufacturing problems, most recently with its transmission.


The scooters top out at a 25mph speed, although the ones on loan to the Sheriff's Department are calibrated to travel no faster than 18mph.

Powered by advanced lithium-ion batteries and two 67bhp (50kW) electric motors to drive the front and rear axles, the Mixim is a four-wheel-drive car with a theoretical top speed of 112mph and a potential maximum range of 156 miles.

Dodge ZEO is 2+2 electric muscle car for the 21st century powered by 200kW electric drive with 0-60 mph in less than 6 seconds and range of 250 miles.
