Tesla gives first look at new Roadster back seats and door system

 Tesla brought the Roadster prototype to its Autonomy day and it even allowed attendees to get inside the vehicle, which is extremely rare.


It gave us our first look at the Tesla next-gen Roadster back seats and door system.
When Tesla unveiled the Roadster prototype last year, CEO Elon Musk claimed a list of insanely impressive specs including 0-60 mph in 1.9 sec, 620-mile of range, and more.
But what was even more surprising to some is that he said it would actually be a four-seater with back seats – something quite rare for supercars.

Even though the Roadster prototypes had quite a few outings since the unveiling in 2017, we’ve never had a good look at the back seat on the working prototype until now.
Now Hamid Shojaee‏, who attended Tesla’s Autonomy Day, released an interesting video of the next-gen Roadster including a look at the backseat:


The quick video also included a first look at Tesla’s door handle system for the new Roadster, which involves swiping your finger on a reader located on the B-pilar next to the door:
It’s a system that Tesla hasn’t implemented in any other car yet. It has only been seen on this next-gen Roadster prototype so far.
The back seats are apparently only available for the base version of the vehicle because CEO Elon Musk said that Tesla also plans to offer a “SpaceX package”, which will include cold air thrusters powered by a system of air pumps and tanks that would take up the space for the backseat.
Tesla is trying to bring the vehicle to market by 2020 and make it the quickest and fastest production car on the market – and it just happens to be all-electric.
The automaker is currently taking reservations for the $200,000 base version with an insane $50,000 deposit and the $250,000 Founders Series for an even more insane $250,000 deposit.
