Electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla has removed its Roadster EV and its price from its official website, according to reports. Tesla had unveiled the Roadster EV back in 2017 and had also stated that it will go on sale in 2020. With the global automotive industry continuing to stare at an unprecedented chip shortage, however, many now expect Tesla to miss the previously mentioned datelines to begin the sales of Roadster EV.

The Tesla Roadster has received significant traction and many went ahead to reserve the EV for about $50,000 and also the limited-edition Founders Series model for an amount of $250,000. The removal of the EV from the official website of the company is leading to speculations that either the EV has been sold out or it might be undergoing changes in specs and in pricing structure previously announced.
