2011 Tesla Roadster 2.5


Unveiled at the 2010 Goodwood Festival of Speed, The Tesla Roadster 2.5 features a refreshed new look, improvements to ease of use and quality, as well as some extra power from the electric motor.

The front fascia and rear diffuser have been given a new design which hasn’t changed since the Roadster was first introduced in 2008. POwer has risen from 252 PS up to 288 PS, with torque also rising from 199 lb-ft to 273 lb-ft. The battery pack remains the same with a 53 kWh capacity.

Improvements to make the Roadster more livable have come from more comfortable seats, better sound dampening and cabin sound reduction, and an upgraded optional large touch screen navigation system with back-up camera.
