This mean, green machine is the first of a new wave of electric supercars. Based on the chassis of a Lotus Elise, it’s ludicrously fast – doing 0-60 in four seconds, in complete silence (although its top speed is electrically limited to 150mph), and is also pretty economical.In petrol terms, it does about 160 miles on a gallon’s worth of energy, with zero emissions, and can go about 250 miles before needing more juice. As the first electric car that works as an effective penis extension, the Tesla is going to make waves, big style.
