Acceleration & Torque

Instant Freedom

The first time you drive the Tesla Roadster, prepare to be surprised. You’re at freeway speed in seconds without even thinking about it. There is no clutch pedal to contend with and no race-car driving techniques to perform. Just the touch of your foot and you’re off, without any of the sluggishness of an automatic.

How powerful is the acceleration? A quick story to illustrate. A favorite trick here at Tesla Motors is to invite a passenger along and ask him to turn on the radio. At the precise moment we ask, we accelerate. Our passenger simply can’t sit forward enough to reach the dials. But who needs music when you’re experiencing such a symphony of motion.

Rest assured that this responsiveness works at all speeds, as noticeable when you’re inching your way through parking lots as when flying along freeways.

100% Torque, 100% of the Time

The Tesla Roadster delivers full availability of performance every moment you are in the car, even while at a stoplight. Its peak torque begins at 0 rpm and stays powerful at 14,000 rpm.

This is the precise opposite of what you experience with a gasoline engine, which has very little torque at a low rpm and only reaches peak torque in a narrow rpm range. This forces you to make frequent gear changes to maintain optimal torque. With the Tesla Roadster, you get great acceleration and the highest energy efficiency at the same time. All while requiring no special driving skills to enjoy it. This makes the Tesla Roadster six times as efficient as the best sports cars while producing one-tenth of the pollution.

Modular Modernism – Space Saving Kitchen Cabinet System

At first glance, these kitchen and cabinets and drawers by Michel Cornu look appealing but simple and modern – black and silver storage spaces hung from the wall. Closer inspection reveals that these are part of dynamic space-saving interior design system that maximizes function through movable wall units.

Tucked between layers of sliding cabinetry, the essentials cooking can be found hidden at the core: stove, oven, faucet, sink with a preparation surface in between and a refrigerator to one side. Why stop at the kitchen? This same strategy could be applied to beds, televisions and other household objects in various rooms just as easily.

When not in use, the constituent elements can be slid up and down to move them out of the way and create varying layouts and spatial configurations. Of course, those of you with some construction experience and keen eye for functionality in design will notice one small problem: unlike in these idealized illustrations, it would be very difficult to allow plumbing-or-piping-required fixtures to float freely in space.
