Tesla Unveils Newest Iteration of EV Roadster
The front clip and rear diffuser have been refreshed, supposedly to resemble stylistic cues on the upcoming Model S. Other exterior changes include new forged wheel designs.
Under the hood, the 2.5 Roadster gets improved sound-deadening materials and something called “power control hardware” that allows the driver to maintain a vigorous driving style even under severely hot temperatures.
Inside, the Roadster gets improved seats that include larger bolsters and a new lumbar system for better comfort. The optional navigation system has been upgraded to a 7-inch screen with a backup camera; last year’s was a tiny in-dash unit.
The 2.5 Roadster will be available at Tesla stores shortly. If you’re already one of the 1,000-plus owners of a Roadster, you can get many of the new features on your vehicle if you are willing to upgrade, according to Tesla.
