Tesla scheduling test drives in La Jolla


Tesla Motors, maker of the pure electric high performance sports car will be hosting test drives from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at Estancia La Jolla, 9700 N. Torrey Pines Road.

Appointments are required. Call (650) 681-5100 to schedule one.

The zero-emission Roadster accelerates from 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds without a drop of gasoline, making it faster than many sports cars yet twice as energy-efficient as a hybrid, according to a press release.

The hand-built carbon fiber Roadster takes no gas and produces no fumes. Already, Tesla owners have driven 4 million electric miles – saving more than 20,000 gallons of gas and almost 5,000 barrels of oil. It is quickly becoming the choice for discerning drivers who demand performance with a clean conscience.

The event is part of Tesla’s Summer Electric Roadster Tour.
