Tesla prepares for the premiere a mysterious carSeptember 1, 2018
Tesla will present a new model at the Grand Basel exhibition
To the exhibition of Grand Basel collection cars, which will be held in Basel, Switzerland, from 6 to 9 September this year, Tesla prepared a “surprise” – the presentation of the new car. According to preliminary information, this will be a serial version of the Tesla Roadster.
The Electrek website informs that the manufacturer sent out invitations to the upcoming event for some customers, and also organized a rally of two VIP-tickets, the results of which will be announced on September 1. More information about the “mystical” novelty is not reported.
The prototype Tesla Roadster of the new generation was presented in November last year. Two-door was equipped with three electric motors – two of them are responsible for the rotation of the wheels of the rear axle, and one – for the front, the total return of which is not yet called. The motors are powered by a battery with a capacity of 250 kilowatt-hours.
From the place to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) Tesla Roadster accelerates in 1.9 seconds. The maximum speed is over 400 kilometers per hour.
Also on the Grand Basel will be presented a model of the car, created according to the original specification of the Italian industrial designer Gio Ponti. In 1953, the concept called Diamond Line was considered too radical, but later some of its elements were embodied in serial machines.
