Gallery: New Tesla Roadster Design Will be Bigger, Roomier

 

Tesla has been bringing innovation and green style to auto industry, ever since the groundbreaking launch of the Tesla Roadster – and more recently with the announcement of the Model S sedan. But is Tesla content to rest on its laurels for now? Not likely. Elon Musk, the company’s CEO, sat down recently for an interview in which he revealed that the next version of the Tesla Roadster will ditch its Lotus roots and will be bigger, better, stronger, and, most importantly, roomier! 

The Tesla Roadster is probably one of the coolest vehicles on the planet right now, but it is not very ergonomically friendly. It only has room for 2, isn’t extremely comfortable, and doesn’t have much space. The next Tesla vehicle, it turns out, will be similar to that of a “roomier Porsche” a vehicle capable of seating more than two people, have roomier seats and more trunk space. All this, of course, will be based on the technology developed for the Model S Sedan which is expected to underping most of Tesla’s future releases.

When will it be released? We’re betting not anytime soon. But let’s face it — with all the terrible news coming out of the industry every day, Tesla is definitely one shining example of what innovation can do in this field.

    Though I’ll never be able to afford this car, I’m greatly excited for what it means for the electric car industry and even broader than that, the greendustry. It’s pretty amazing that we get to see such monumental change in the course of a lifetime, I think in 20 years the highways are going to be filled with cars like this, and maybe in 20 more years we’ll see a documentary called Who Killed the Gasoline Car? I found some interesting comments about the car on pandalous. Here they are : http://www.pandalous.com/nodes/the_eventual_rise_of_the
