Top Gear Tesla Roadster. IBRAHIM test the first eco-sport car ever made!

One of the biggest problems of global warming today. Of the internal combustion engine exhaust gases emitted to the environment caused by “greenhouse effect” as a factor that can be displayed. Produced by US-based Tesla Motors electric car is a little bit to get it is to move forward. The Tesla Roadster is currently only seen in photographs of companies that produce, said would produce a four-door sedan. Tesla roadster approximately 183 kW (250 bhp) of power and 0-96 km / h acceleration is completed in four seconds and reach a range of 300-350 kilometers. Lotus Elise Roadster is being manufactured using the platform, the new model, light-alloy steel is expected to use a different platform.

tesla’s flagship Roadster sports a very unique design—in more ways than one. The power system comes most immediately to mind. Historically battery capacity was limited by its unweildly mass as well as of the inconvenience of finding recharging stations and then waiting to get the juice refreshed. In this marque, those employed are based on essentially the same Lithium-ion variety found in the typical laptop PC. Chosen due to their superior charge capacity as well as longevity, the batteries themselves are far superior to the lead-acid variety (well over 100,000 miles—a four to one advantage).

The power supply is partitioned into 11 sectors of 621 cells, each of which is linked to its own processor, serving to monitor both the rates of charge and discharge for each cell. This structure makes for “intelligent,” dynamic charging throughout to coordinate optimal performance of the system as a whole.

The inverter relies upon 72 insulated transistors to convert DC energy into AC power. Since transistors generate little heat, the air cooling system is simple and not heavy. As for heating inside, electric-generated heat can be delivered “immediately” on demand—no more waiting for the engine to warm up on a sub-freezing winter morning!

The regenerative braking system (popularized by cars such as the Prius but discussed in scientific journals for decades) captures some of the vast amount of energy typically lost in automotive systems. As a by-product of this integrated system, it places virtually no wear on the brakes themselves since gears in the generators capture much of energy normally wasted when the typical car brakes.

Top speed is not in the supercar territory, however. The Tesla Roadster touches 130 mph – still faster than anything the law would permit, and all that most would need in a real life scenario. This is definitely no weekend track carver, though.

The electric motor produces 248 horsepower, and the car has two gears. it is practically silent, and can startle pedestrians with its completely silent approach – the only noticeable sound is produced by the tires on the road.

But at $ 100,000, isn’t this too expensive to take over our streets? Yes, it is. The Tesla Roadster is a tour de force, a flagship model to prove that the concept can work in real world scenarios. Martin Eberhard and Tesla Motors have promised a four door electric sedan in 2008 or so, which will be priced a lot more reasonably, will not go like a supercar, and still be convenient and fun to use. Tesla Motors may not be the company to change the look of our streets, but there would be many companies who would look at a successful electric car with interest, and would seriously look at collaborating, or even taking over the company a couple of years down the line.

What are the cons? Well, there is that fear about exploding laptop batteries, recently heightened after Dell’s recall of about 4 million laptops. Tesla Motors says that one should nto worry about their battery back – that its shieled and all care has been taken to avoid any problems at all.

Remember, Drive Carefully
There aren’t many Tesla Roadster electric cars on the road right now, so it’s a bit heartbreaking to see photos of this lifeless Roadster carcass (via Wrecked Exotic Cars).

It is apparently the 3rd Tesla to crash: The first time “was when a technician was testing the vehicle and ran into the back of a truck. The 2nd crash occurred in San Francisco after the driver failed to slow down at a red light and rear ended another vehicle.” Read on for more photos and the story of this 3rd Tesla crash.
