Patented Curved Touchscreen on the Tesla Roadster

Patented Curved Touchscreen on the Tesla Roadster

The second-generation Tesla Roadster may be getting close to manufacturing, according to a recent publication.

The application, which was made public on March 12 by the USPTO, features a curved display in the center of the dashboard that is oriented portrait-wise, just like the one Tesla unveiled with the Roadster in 2017.

A number of automakers have since added horizontally curved dashboard displays in the ensuing years. However, the automaker’s performance promises for the Roadster and Tesla’s vertical display continue to be notable features.

Tesla stated that the electric sports car could reach 100 mph in 4.2 seconds, go from 0 to 60 mph in 1.9 seconds, and reach a top speed of 250 mph. According to Tesla at the time, 620 miles could be covered by a 200 kwh battery pack. CEO Elon Musk said that a “SpaceX rocket thruster option package” will reduce the 0–60 mph speed to 1.1 seconds just a year later.

Tesla said in 2017 that the base price for the ordinary Roadster would be $200,000, while the limited-edition Founder Series variant would start at $250,000. Following the announcement, Tesla started taking reservations. For the basic Roadster, a $50,000 deposit was required, and for the Founder Series, the entire $250,000 was due at once. Deliveries were supposed to begin in 2020, according to the business at the time, but that never happened.

In February, Musk stated that the production-spec Roadster is expected to be ready for unveiling later this year, with delivery scheduled to begin in 2025. Additionally, he stated that the Roadster’s 0–60 mph pace of less than 1.0 seconds will be significantly faster than previously mentioned.
