Tesla electric roadster launches

tesla.jpg SONY Pictures may now have to plan a sequel to this summer’s movie Who Killed the Electric Car? (see previous review). Tesla Motors launched their electric roadster in Santa Monica this week. The Roadster tops out at 130 mph and beats the pants of most sports cars by reaching 0-60mph in about 4 seconds.

The cool kids at AutoBlogGreen have the full story, including tons of pics and a test ride review.

    The tesla car article would have been facinating, but like most of your postings the font was so #@&*^ small that I can not read it even with a magnifying glass! what’s up with that and can it be fixed?

    This problem seems to be occurring for people who use Internet Explorer as their web browser and have the text size set to “smallest”. To fix, select the “View” menu, then the “Text size” menu. Set the text size to “Medium”.

    To increase the font in Microsoft Internet Explorer open the View menu and select option Text Size. Or, for greater convenience, use Mozilla Firefox and hit Ctrl-+ (hold down the Ctrl key and hit the +/= key, which is to the right of the 0 key).

    You can increase the font size in Apple’s Safari browser by simultaneously pressing the Command key and the + key. (Or go to View > Make Text Bigger.)

    How can I find out when this movie will be showing in my area? I’m in the 31907 zip code! I saw the preview at the movie theater, but so far, no movie advertised.

    It is a shame that movies like this never go past limited release. Some day soon there be a DVD

    Electric cars are much good for long-haul trips because of the long recharge required. That doesn’t mean they are not useful and fun.

    If only the goverment, oil companies and car manufactures would look after “us” the people instead of keeping us tied to the old “oil” products and their pocket books.
    I realize that they are only making the bucks while we have leadership who will allow these high prices we are paying at the pump.
    If the EV1 or simular type of electric vehicles would be offered to the public, it would be great for us and our UNITED STATES.

    Here are some tips on how you can buy and have a quality used car, so as you would not be replacing unnecessary parts along the way…Hope, this might help…
    Tips & Warning
    • As a final precaution, take the car to a mechanic, who should charge a reasonable fee to check over a used car. The seller should agree to this, but may require that you leave a deposit. If the seller won’t let you take the car, offer to meet him or her at a mutually convenient garage.
    • If you give the seller a deposit in order to take the car to have it checked, make sure to write out an agreement stating that the deposit will be returned immediately if you decide not to buy the car.
    If the vehicle’s mileage appears unusually low, have a mechanic determine whether someone has tampered with the odometer. If so, the seller must refund any money you have paid and may be liable for punitive damages under federal and state odometer laws…
    This is how I acquire my car; I inspected all its auto parts from exterior and interior aspect down to its Mazda control arm and other accessories. By doing so, you could be sure of the quality of vehicle you are getting…=)
