Tesla's Roadster pulling into Europe

June 21, 2009 A London showroom is taking delivery of two of Tesla's newest electric model, the Roadster Sport.

The $130,000-car can travel more than 244 miles after a full battery recharge. The recharge takes about 3 hours.

The new electric Roadster can go zero to 60 miles per hour in under four seconds.

There are about 500 of the Roadsters on America's roads.

Tesla just found out it will receive an almost $500,000,000 loan from the Obama administration to expand its electric car business.
