Tesla has revealed details on its next-generation Roadster, which it claims will be the quickest all-wheel drive EV in the world.

Unveiled Thursday evening, the two-door high-performance car can go from 0-60 mph in just 1.9 seconds, with a top speed of more than 250 mph.

Remarkably, the American automaker claims it will have a range of 620 miles on a single charge. That compares to 310 miles for its current-generation Model 3.

The big difference, however, comes in the price tag, with the base price of the Roadster set to be $200,000, and requiring a $50,000 deposit for reservations, which are already being taken.

Further details on the Roadster and its launch date are expected to be revealed in the coming months.

The reveal came alongside Tesla’s new electric semi truck, which will begin production in 2019.
