Tesla Roadster: half the emissions of a hybrid
While it performs like a Ferrari, the Tesla Roadster comes without the high level of emissions and noise of most performance cars. Tesla founder Musk claims that the Tesla Roadster will produce half the carbon dioxide per mile of a hybrid car. Tesla is also working with solar panel companies to install panels at the homes of Tesla Roadster owners to help them power the car.
