Tesla Roadster Test Drive
One beautiful December day we went for a test drive on the much talked about, super fast electric sports car, the Tesla Roadster. We also interviewed Tesla in their showroom and assembly area.
It was an amazing experience and I hope that car companies will make electric cars the standard fleet coming out of their factories. http://www.ecobold.com
