From zero to sixty, how quickly does a Tesla Roadster travel?

People who want a fast, environmentally friendly electric car typically end up with a Tesla Roadster.

It's easy to see why, considering the car can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 1.9 seconds.

When it was released in 2008, it was one of the fastest cars available, and Motor Trend confirmed its speed.

A 248-horsepower electric motor allows for a lightning-fast 0-to-60 mph time and top speeds of 250 mph.

There aren't many cars that can match the Tesla Roadster's acceleration.

The acceleration is so powerful that rocket ships have been used as an analogy; the resulting adrenaline rush is unparalleled.

There are those who would argue that the Ferrari Enzo or Bugatti Veyron are faster, but when acceleration times are considered alone, the Tesla Roadster is clearly the winner.
