Tesla's Roadster 2.5 Electric Car Now Has Touchscreen, Rear Video Camera

Overhyped and overpriced it may be, you've got to smile at Tesla upgrading its lusted-after electric Roadster car with iPod/iPhone compatibility and a 7-inch touchscreen, which is supported by a rear camera for parking problems.

The look and feel of the car has been redesigned too, with new air-intake vents, alloy wheels and comfier seats. It's better suited for warmer climates too, thanks to a new power control system.

Details are sparse, but it's said the new Roadster 2.5 looks more "aggressive". Whatever that means to car nuts. Inside is where Gizmodo readers are going to be most interested, due to that touchscreen which displays the parking view from a rear camera. No more prangs! (Theoretically). It can also play DVDs for those "offroad" times.

As for price or launch times, well...this is Tesla we're talking about. [Tesla via Autocar]
