Tesla Roadster Sport Electric Car Spotted At Singapore GP

Tesla Roadster Sport Spotted At 2011 Singapore Formula 1 Grand Prix

One of ElectricCarConversionBlog.com s blog readers, Helge, recently submitted this photo of a Tesla Roadster Sport he took whilst at the 2011 Singapore Formula 1 Grand Prix. The Lion City Nation of Singapore is no stranger to technology. Singapore is home to a lot of high tech electronics and computing industries.

The population is very tech savvy and have an appreciation for cars, despite their high cost of registration over there. Due to Singapore s compact size (under 4 times the size of Washington DC), Electric Cars would be an ideal form of transport there. Already, Singapore launched an Electric Vehicle Test-bed to electrify the car fleet which used Mitsubishi i-MiEV and Smart Electric Cars . Common daily trips in Singapore rarely exceed 40 miles (64 kilometers).

Some details about the Tesla Roadster Sport

The Tesla Roadster Sport was originally based on a Lotus Elise chassis (ie. highly advanced and innovative Electric Car Conversion done on a Lotus Elise), but I believe they only have around 7% of components in common. It has a 375 Volt AC Induction Motor with a single speed drive train. It accelerates from 0 to 60 miles per hour  (0 to 96 kilometers per hour) in 3.7 seconds, 295 foot pounds (400 Newton Meters) of torque and  288 horse power (212 kilowatts) of power. It has  a range of over 245 miles (392 kilometers) which is more than adequate for the common Singapore daily commute (at that rate, the average person would only need to charge up once per week, unless the air conditioning was turned up full blast).

Top speed is 125 miles per hour (200 kilometers per hour) which is over twice the legal speed limit on Singapore s Expressways (known as Motorways or Freeways in other parts of the world).

Inside the Tesla Roadster Sport . it comes with air conditioning as standard equipment along with an in-dash touch screen for GPS, information and entertainment purposes. It also has  a nice 400 watt 7 speaker sound system and all sorts of other high tech gadgets which Singaporeans typically like in their cars.

With an exterior length of 155.1 inches (just under 4 meters) and width of 72.9 inches (just under 1.9 meters), it will be a relatively easy car to commute around in.


Having visited Singapore several times, I ve noticed that they have an interest in nice cars. It is no surprise to see Tesla keen to address this market as this is clearly one of their target markets. Teh Tesla Roadster Sport is a fantastic car. I am confident that there will be a number of eager customers who would like to buy the Tesla Roadster Sport .

Special thanks to Helge for taking this photo and sending it in.
