Check out this review by Top Gear of the Tesla Roadster. Incase you've lived under a rock your whole life and are unaware of what the Tesla Raodster is, well it's the first so-called 'all electric sports car'. It was developed with the help of Lotus designers, and is powered by a 3-phase, 4-pole electric motor producing a maximum net power of 248 hp, or 185 kW. Definitely no Toyota Prius. If you can handle the 1o minute clip, then watch cause it's a great review.... Shows the car's highs and lows, LOW lows.
