New Tesla Sports Car 2020
Tesla sports car, the launch of the new Tesla Roadster has been delayed. Tesla boss Elon Musk revealed the Roadster will now be launched in 2022 on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast. The delay was considered not due to coronavirus but because the company focused on other models before major sports cars. Roadster production was originally scheduled for this year.
The new Roadster is a surprise announcement during the launch of the new Tesla HGV Semi Truck in 2017. It will be the first Tesla sports car since the original 2008 Lotus Elise based model, which was no longer released in 2012. The Tesla Y model, will hit the British coast in in front, is considered a top priority for now.
The latest news on the “fate” of the roadster made by Tesla is now out. Elon Musk says that if the production of the latest Tesla car is delayed until 2022 or sooner. Looking back, the “iron man” says that if the launch of Tesla roadster will take place in 2020, since it was first introduced in 2017. The reason for the withdrawal of the official Tesla Roadster according to Elon Musk is because this car is not a company priority.
There are several lists that Tesla Motors must make at this time, such as increasing production of the Model Y, redesigning the German gigafactory to continue operations, expanding the gigafactory in Shanghai, and continuing the official Tesla Semi process for mass production, and turning Tesla Cybertruck into production .
With this very long work plan, it is impossible to say that the Tesla Roadster will be present in the next 1-2 years, and not to mention that the Covid-19 pandemic has also closed Tesla’s access to implement this work plan. In an interview with Joe Rogan, Musk said that if he chooses to implement cybertruck and roadster plans, he prefers to implement Cybertruck completion targets.
He went on to say that to make Cybertruck’s presence smooth, Elon had to create a new factory specifically to produce pick-ups. He promises that even if the Roadster still has a long road, it will not bore the fans. He promises that while the Roadster still has a long road, it will not bore his fans, as he has also designed more mature specifications for the premier roadster.
When first launching the Roadster, Musk demanded a list of exceptional specifications for this car, including speeds of 0-100 km / h in just 1.9 seconds and a driving distance of over 600 km.
The Tesla Roadster is expected to sell for $ 200,000 as a base price, subject to a $ 50,000 order. The special “Founder Series” model, limited to 1,000 cars only, costs $ 250,000 for orders subject to full payment.
Tesla is working with physicists from Dalhouse University in Canada to develop a battery pack that can cover a distance of 1 million miles or about 1.6 million kilometers.
Quoted from Forbes.com, Friday (3/1/2020) Tesla and its partners have even filed a patent for battery technology on December 26, 2019. Lithium-ion battery technology is claimed to be able to beat the batteries that are now commonly used by other electric car manufacturers.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that his party has started developing the technology from April 2019.
This battery technology is actually not needed by Tesla users today whose average passenger car unit only has a lifespan or a maximum lifespan of 150,000 miles. Even so, this technology will greatly help long-distance truck vehicles traveling an average distance of 150,000 miles per year.
Compared to the 100 kWh battery currently used in the Model S and Model X variants, this battery also has a longer charging cycle. If these two models can last up to the range of 1,000-2,000 cycles, this new technology will last up to 4,000 cycles.
In fact, it is said that battery capacity will only decrease by about 5% after 1,000 cycles of charging, and 10% after 4,000 cycles.
The chemical content in these batteries is also demanded to increase efficiency, energy density and longer lifespan at lower costs. The new cathode crystal structure and chemical makeup make this battery more resistant to damage from the charging cycle.
