Elon Musk Teases Tesla Roadster Update
23 Décembre 2014 - Autoblog
A holiday present is coming for Tesla enthusiasts, according to a Twieet from Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk. Like all good presents, we don't know what it'll be, thought.
Musk only said that details for an improved Roadster electric vehicle will be announced later this week. Ever the master of suspense, Musk would not provide further detail. He'd only say that a number of "crisis issues ... pushed this out longer than expected." Whatever it is, make mine red, Santa.
Earlier this year at Tesla's annual shareholder meeting, Musk said the automaker would do "something cool" with the Roadster before the end of the year, though, again, he wasn't specific. In the summer, Musk told the UK's Auto Express that the Roadster would get an upgraded battery that would give the convertible a 644-km single-charge range. That would make the convertible's range about 217 km longer than the top-of-the-line Tesla Model S sedan.
