Elon Musk Confirms: The Second-Gen Tesla Roadster Delayed!
Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, has recently declared that the next version of the 2024 Tesla Roadster has been delayed once again. The highly anticipated Roadster is now anticipated to hit the production line by the end of 2024.
In 2017, the new Roadster was unveiled, and it was initially scheduled to begin production in 2020. The Roadster boasts impressive figures, including a 0-60 mph time of 1.9 seconds and a top speed of 250 mph. Moreover, it has a claimed range of 620 miles and is powered by a 200 kWh battery pack. Surprisingly, it is also designed with seating for four people.
For the past six years, customers have had the opportunity to reserve a base Roadster for a down payment of $50,000. The anticipated starting price of the vehicle is approximately $200,000, and there will also be a special Founder's Series edition available at a price of $250,000.
It is still uncertain whether the 2024 Tesla Roadster will be manufactured in the fourth quarter of 2024, which is seven years after it was initially revealed. This is because Tesla seems to have shifted its focus from high-end vehicles to more budget-friendly ones, like the upcoming $25,000 "Model 2".
