Staff writer

Last night, American electric car brand Tesla told the world it was going to unveil an electric lorry, which it did – but the firm then surprised the world by unveiling an all-new Roadster.

While the original Tesla Roadster was a very limited-run vehicle based on the Lotus Elise, the new model will be completely new underneath. As you might expect from Tesla, it's no slouch – in fact, the company claims it will be the quickest production car in the world.
