Buying and Driving a Tesla Roadster in the UK Just Got Easier

tesla-roadsterIf you live here in the UK but fancied a Tesla Roadster good news as just hit as they open a showroom in London.

The American electric car maker, Tesla, has just confirmed that it will make a right-hand drive version of its Roadster model which should appear in early 2010.

The Roadster is designed around the lovely Lotus Elise and has a sub 4 second 0 to 60 combined with a range of over 200 miles after a 3 hour charge.

If you don’t mind driving a leftie, or just can’t wait, you can get one now for around £90,000.

The announcement came as company owner Elon Musk opened the first European dealership, and what will become Tesla’s flagship Euro showroom in Kensington, London.

Elon Musk said that “had the potential to become a huge market for Tesla, bigger even than the US”.

Development of the Model S electric saloon was confirmed as “back on track” for launch in late 2011.
