We recently checked out the new Tesla Roadster at the British International Motor Show, but one of our compatriots in the US has had the chance to drive one. US news show 60 Minutes has recently taken a tour of the States to investigate the state of the American electric car market, starting with the Tesla Roadster.
Watch Lesley Stahl put her foot to the floor in one of the most exciting vehicles to come out of the US for a long time. Will it be better than the British-made Lightning or India's G-Wiz? Well obviously it's better than the G-Wiz, but see what 60 Minutes made of it, and keep an eye out for more 60 Minutes videos today. -Jason Jenkins
