Tesla Motors just kicked off its Electric Summer Roadster Tour last week. The tour takes the Tesla Roadster on the road, (no pun intended) all over the country, from Omaha to Buffalo, Seattle to Dallas and Tesla staff will be on hand to answer questions and offer test drives.
Customers interested in learning more about it can find the tour schedule here.
"Driving a Roadster from Los Angeles to Detroit proved to us that there is pent-up demand for the Roadster all over the country," said Ricardo Reyes, VP of Communications Tesla. "With this tour we hope to show that electric cars are here today, and better than traditional cars in so many ways."
Just to recap, the Roadster Sport consumes no gasoline. Owners simply charge the Roadster overnight and wake up to the equivalent of a full tank – over 200 miles of driving range. The Roadster requires less routine maintenance than conventional cars. It does not need regular oil changes or exhaust system work. Roadsters have no spark plugs, pistons, hoses, belts or clutches to replace. Zero tailpipe emission means no smog checks.
