We’ve already covered the updated 2011 Tesla Roadster 2.5 upgrade on AllCarsElectric and although our John Voelcker has given the 2010 Roadster a 7.4 out of 10 over at TheCarConnection, we’ve yet to put the 2011 Roadster 2.5 through its paces. 

Updated with a new grille, some performance tweaks and an all-new battery management system that provides better thermal stability for the battery pack in extremes of weather, the Tesla Roadster 2.5 certainly looks good on paper.  

But this weekend we’re getting a chance to really find out for sure. Thanks to Tesla UK, we’re going to be putting a 2011 Tesla Roadster 2.5 through its paces all weekend with 100+ mile freeway jaunts, winding country lanes and congested city streets. 

We’ll be giving you our ultimate review of the latest update to this iconic car, including everything from the way it handles through to the fit and finish of the trim. 

We’ll report on its intelligent charging system, different performance modes and even how it fares as a traffic-jam creeper.  

We’ll get reaction from the man or woman on the street and find out just how many people really know about its claimed 0-60 mph times, or even care. And we’ll aim to put to bed the BBC Top Gear myths about its range per charge. 

But we also want to hear YOUR questions. What do you want to know about the 2011 Tesla Roadster 2.5?  Maybe you want to know about its touch-screen usability or its updated seats? Or perhaps you want to know if it really can be used as a daily commuter car?

We love hearing your suggestions, so get thinking! To send us your questions, just leave them in the Comments section below. Or, you can e-mail them to: feedback (at) highgearmedia (dot) com.

    Bad stuff?

  2. How much of the Tesla 2.5 design do you feel is readily transferable to a family or commuter car?

  3. Please report more about the new "top off" mode. Apparently the new standard "full charge" doesn't quite fill all the way unless you manually specify "top off". If you don't "top off" do you still get full regen braking even when leaving with a (nearly) full daily charge?
    Also there is a 3rd key without lock/unlock buttons. What is the purpose of the 3rd key? For valets? As a master if you need to make duplicates? In case you lock your main keys inside?
    thanks.
