Due to popular demand – who knew? – Tesla has decided to extend sales of the Tesla Roadster into 2012. What’s more: they’re also ramping up production of the electric sports car by 40%.
According to the latest Tesla Motors newsletter, Tesla is also expanding its reach to other previously untapped regions, including Asia and Australia.
This latest announcement is great news for fans of Tesla, especially considering that Tesla previously announced that they would cease selling the Roadster after 2011. But now that the company has come to terms with a number of important suppliers, it’s beginning to look like the Roadster will have an extended lease in life.
Plus, it helped that a lot of people continue to clamor for the car, which made the decision to push sales into 2012 that much easier.
