Mask promised to give the roadster Tesla a set of rocket boosters
The Tesla Roadster project was officially launched in 2017 and will be mass-produced in 2020. Not so long ago, he drew the attention of the whole world when a heavy rocket Falcon Heavy brought into space for demonstration purposes a “valuable” cargo – a roadster with a dummy on board . Now, Mask again began to intrigue the world, promising to release for the electric vehicle a special package of options “SpaceX”.
SpaceX for Tesla Roadster, according to the tweet of the founding father is a set of small-sized rockets for an electric vehicle that radically change its driving performance. Only this is not really rockets, but tanks with air under high pressure, but the principle of jet propulsion in them remains. And they are needed in order to instantly accelerate the car almost to the airspeed. In any case, the word “fly” in the tweet Mask is exactly.
The air tanks are mounted in the rear seat, the accelerator nozzles are located around the Tesla body. The package also includes a set of powerful electric pumps that will compress and inject air from the atmosphere into the drives as it is consumed. And then everything depends on what is the level of charge in the batteries of an electric vehicle – just to accelerate from the heart or really develop traction that will help overcome gravity.
