Tesla Roadsters Finally Hit The Road

In what’s seemed like endless delays in delivery of Tesla’s sport $100k all electric roadster, there’s finally some good news to report…

Deliver has started.

So far Tesla is reporting that they’ve delivered 9 of the vehicles so far with three more being delived by the weekend.

The GM assembly line this is not.

Right now Tesla is capable of finishing four production vehicles each week, and they currently have 27 roadsters in “various stages of assembly.”

So why the heck is production on these things so slow? Well, according to Tesla Motors CEO Ze’ev Drori, “we deliberately limit the production until we install our own born and bred final transmission by mid-September, at which time production will start to ramp up leading toward a monthly rate of over 100 cars in December.”

I know a cheap all electric Tesla probably won’t be making it’s way to my Nebraska home anytime soon, but I’m still excited to see these things finally hitting the road.
