Tesla delays the new Roadster until 2023

Elon Musk has confirmed that Tesla has pushed its new sports car plan to 2023, which means the new electric supercar is now three years behind the original plan.

When the next generation Roadster debuted in 2017, it was valued at $200,000. Musk said at the time that it would be listed in 2020.

The company is already making reservations for this electric car, which can accelerate from 0 km / h to a range of more than 965 km in 1.9 seconds.

The first person to get the car is required to leave a security deposit of between $50,000 and $250,000.

Then the car plan was shelved and the CEO said it wasn't a priority for the company.

In 2020, Musk hinted that the vehicle would be pushed back to 2022 as the automaker focuses on e-trucks.

Earlier this year, the CEO confirmed that this new car wouldn't be available until 2022.

The automaker had a tough year due to a lack of chips, and Cybertruck itself was clearly a priority but lagged behind.

When asked about the timetable for the Roadster, Musk confirmed that it will now be pushed back to 2023. He explained that it also depends on whether there are many problems in 2022.

“2021 will be the year of major bottlenecks in the supply chain,” Musk said. It doesn't matter if we have 17 new products, they won't ship. Assuming there are no problems in 2022, the new car is expected to be delivered in 2023.

The company is touting the new Roadster as the most powerful car in the world, one that has thrown a fossil-fuel-powered supercar overseas.

When the car debuted, Tesla provided an impressive list of specs for the new roadster. Including acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 1.9 seconds, a range of 965 km, etc.

However, the CEO quickly added that the specifications of the new electric supercar announced in 2017 are just basic.

Musk then clarified that the company plans to offer SpaceX performance improvement packages. Recently, Musk claimed that the combination reduces the sports car's acceleration time from 0-100 km/h to just 1.1 seconds.
