Tesla Roadster Successor Not a Guarantee
Despite earlier reports that Tesla would have a successor to its Roadster model set to debut sometime in 2015, the American electric automaker has confirmed that a decision on a new Roadster has not yet been made.
The automaker is currently focusing on its new Model S and Model X, as well as a more mainstream BMW 3 Series rival that’s expected to be unveiled sometime in 2015-2016. Tesla hopes to have a couple of sedans and a compact SUV on the market before it returns to the drawing board on creating a successor to its Roadster model.
“It isn’t decided that we will build another Roadster, but that would be around the time we would look to have a real ‘halo’ model in the range,” said George Blankenship, vice-president of sales and ownership experience.
