All-electric cars to use lithium-ion battery cells and the first production. All-electric cars travel more than 320 kilometres (200 mi) per charge. It is also the first production car launched into deep space. In addition, this auto carried by a Falcon Heavy rocket in a test flight on February 6, 2018.

Elon Musk says his rocket-powered Tesla Roadster will go from 0 to 60 miles per hour (mph) 1.1 seconds. However, the acceleration is a full second faster than any existing production car. To put it it a nut shell, it is unclear how Musk will develop a rocket-boosted production car.
