  4.  
  5. Current Day All Electric Tesla Roadster and Roadster Sport First produced for the public in 2008 Approximately 1300 cars world wide Zero-60 mph acceleration: 3.7 seconds EPA driving range: 245 miles
  6. Technical <ul><li>6831 Li-ion Batteries / 400 Volts / 56 kWh </li></ul><ul><li>Battery temperature maintenance </li></ul>
  7. Battery Energy Density Trend Lithium Ion vs. Ni-MH vs. Ni-Cd
  8. Technical <ul><li>Charging time from zero charge to full charge (partial charges much faster) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>15A/120V 37 hours </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>70A/240V 3.5 hours </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Four charging / driving modes </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Storage </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Standard </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Range </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Performance </li></ul></ul>
  9. Technology <ul><li>375 Volt three-phase AC induction motor </li></ul><ul><li>288 HP (215 kW) @ 5000-6000 rpm </li></ul><ul><li>277 ft/lb (376 Nm) torque </li></ul><ul><li>Single speed fixed gear </li></ul>
  10.  
  11. Performance <ul><li>Zero to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds for the roadster / 3.7 seconds for the roadster sport </li></ul><ul><li>277 ft/lb torque @ 0 – 4500 rpm for the roadster </li></ul><ul><li>¼ mile in approximately 12.6 seconds </li></ul><ul><li>125 mph top speed @ 14,000 rpm redline </li></ul>
  12. Performance <ul><li>245 miles on full charge in Range Mode </li></ul>
  13. <ul><li>World Record: 313 miles on a single charge </li></ul>
  14. Performance Aluminum Chassis Carbon fiber body Total Roadster weight = 2,723 pounds Battery weight = 992 pounds 40% / 60% Weight distribution
  15. Environmental <ul><li>Zero tail pipe emissions </li></ul>The ultimate flex fuel vehicle
  16. Environmental <ul><li>Worst case scenario: The roadster power source has approximately 1/2 the CO 2 emissions of a comparable gas powered car. </li></ul><ul><li>88% efficient roadster / compared to 25 % efficiency of internal combustion cars </li></ul>
  17. Cost per mile (fuel and maintenance) Tesla Roadster: approximately 4 cents / mile Mini Cooper: approximately 14 cents / mile
  18. Things I Like <ul><li>“The car is ingenious in its simplicity” </li></ul><ul><li>(Dan Myers, car owner) </li></ul><ul><li>Virtually no maintenance </li></ul><ul><ul><li>No belts </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>No filters </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Relatively few moving parts </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Regenerative braking </li></ul><ul><li>Guilt free driving </li></ul><ul><li>Performance regardless of altitude </li></ul>
  19. Future <ul><li>Production of the roadster ends in late 2011 </li></ul>Zero-60 mph acceleration: 5.7 seconds Up to 300 Mile Range Daimler Smart EV with Tesla Battery
  20. Thank you “ The stone age came to an end not for lack of stones And the oil age will come to an end not for lack of oil” — Sheikh Yamani, former OPEC Member Burn rubber, not gas.
