After months of teasers and tweets, Tesla finally unveiled its all-electric lorry in November past year and, at the same event, it upstaged it with something no one was expecting: an all-new Tesla Roadster.

The rocket boosters take the form of a "sophisticated bottle" that fires bursts of high-pressure air out the back of the sports auto, the electric-transport news site adds. "The point of all this is just to give a hardcore smackdown to gasoline cars". The negative coverage of Autopilot, combined with ongoing challenges with Model 3 production, battered Tesla's stock, though it has recovered some losses this month. The additions are promised to dramatically improve acceleration for the already insanely fast Roadster, which will be able to zip from standstill to 60 miles per hour in just 1.9 seconds sans "rocket" boost.
Spent air from the thrusters would be refilled immediately using the Roadster's batteries to power air pumps, which in lesser electric vehicles may be a reduced range concern. The new Roadster starts at $200,000 and is expected to arrive in 2020.
