The Tesla, making electric cars sexy

The Jalopnik crew got to see the Press introduction of Tesla motors’ new electric roadster, complete with a Schwarzenegger appearance. The car is based loosely on the Lotus Elise and has some parts produced by the company. The battery pack is integrated into the chassis as a strengthening member and it can be charged in a few hours using a dedicated unit or on the road using an adapter. How long until we see one driven all the way across the USA?
