Make way for the Tesla. The long-awaited Roadster, a sleek Ferrari-like electric vehicle, finally hit the market as Tesla opened its first retail store this month in the Westwood neighborhood of Los Angeles. The car, which has a sticker price of over $100,000, does 0 to 60 mph in just under four seconds, goes 225 miles on a charge and can be fully recharged in 3 ½ hours. The next store is set to open in a couple of months near Tesla headquarters in Silicon Valley, in the city of San Carlos. More stores are planned for Chicago, New York and other cities next year.
Tesla began taking orders last year for the Tesla and the first ones began rolling off the production line in March. Tesla officials say California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, actors George Clooney and Kelsey Grammar and musians Will.i.am and Flea have ordered Roadsters.
