TESLA will present a new generation of Roadster model in 2019. This edition of AutoCar stated the head of the ELON Mask brand. The company’s engineers decided to abandon the use of the Lotus ELISE chassis on which the current generation of the car was built. Most likely, the new Roadster will be built on a shortened MODEL S platform.
The novelty will receive a new Ludicrous mode, the dynamic characteristics of the car will noticeably increase. In addition, the model will equip a new battery and an upgraded battery. Other technical details are still kept secret.
In August 2015, a restyled version of Tesla Roadster will be sold. The main change that the American brand will receive is in an enlarged turn of the course without recharging. Now the car is able to drive up to 643 kilometers. In the initial performance, the stroke reserve was not more than 390 kilometers.
This has become possible after installation on the car of batteries with new cells. They can keep 31% more energy than before. At the same time, the size of the block with batteries and their weight has practically not changed. Significantly increase the reserve of the novelty engineers were able, among other things, due to improved aerodynamics and tires with a low rolling coefficient.
