As host of the Tonight Show we all know that Jay Leno has the greatest job ever. He lives the celebrity live style and truly enjoys his daytime gig. Thankfully for us though he’s also a rabid car nut. Jay’s website, Jay Leno’s Garage is great not only for checking out Jay’s current stockpile of rides, but watching him road test the latest and greatest automobiles from around the world. In this episode Jay jumps behind the wheel of the fully electric 2010 Tesla Roadster 2.5. The 2.5 Roadster comes with a single speed transmission, a 0-60 time of under 4-seconds and a “claimed” range of 245 miles on a single charge. Granted the Tesla Roadster has no appeal for someone like myself, but those who are interested in saving the planet at a cost of $109,000 while at the same time only carrying two people in complete silence, well then the 2010 Tesla Roadster 2.5 may just be the car for you.

  1. You need quotations around “saving the planet,” too. I mean, if you REALLY want to save the planet, you’ll buy a used bicycle. Or a horse. Not a new car that takes about 100,000 barrels of oil worth of energy to produce. And don’t get me started on lithium mining for the batteries . . .

    Regardless, it’s orange, which you gotta love. ;)

    And for the record, I dig the Tesla. Because it goes like stink. And I dig anything that goes like stink.

    So many things need to be said… one, she totally dodged the question of a real-world, sports car range. She just says the same EPA mileage which Jay specifically said he doesn’t care about. Love it. Then he asks another question about temps, and she dodges that one too. She’s a pro-question ninja. Three, Jay, it’s Tesla, not Teslur.

    But, I love the car. I think it’s a great step, even if I think it’s in the wrong direction. I, too, love the fact that it goes like stink. Can’t beat that.
