Who Says Electric Cars Are Heavy?

Tesla Roadster On Tea Cups (Images property OhGizmo!)
By Andrew Liszewski

I’ve walked past this display a few times over the last couple of weeks and figured I’d grab some photos of it last night. What you see there is a Tesla Roadster sitting on top of four tea cups in front of a William Ashley China store. Now one downside critics often cite when it comes to electric cars is the added weight from the large batteries, and according to this display the tea cups under the front wheels of the Tesla are each supporting 481 pounds while the tea cups under the back wheels each have to deal with 894 pounds. So if it’s not heavy enough to shatter a set of tea cups, I guess it’s nothing to worry about right?
