Tesla Roadster Upgrade to be Announced This Week

Tesla plans to announce an upgrade to its existing Roadster sports cars this week in keeping with a promise it made earlier this year.

CEO Elon Musk told Auto Express in October that the company planned to offer an upgrade to the Tesla Roadster that would boost its driving range to about 400 miles compared to the EPA-estimated 245 mile range they currently have. Tesla still hasn’t announced how it plans to achieve the upgrade or what it will cost owners, but Musk responded to someone via Twitter on Friday, December 19, saying the company will announce the update this week.

Musk said other, more pressing issues with the company caused delays in announcing the Roadster enhancement. Last Tesla announced that the first battery swapping station for the Model S is operating.
