Tesla Roadster on Jay Leno's Garage, take 2.5 – Click above to watch video after the jump

Jay Leno gets the updated version of the Tesla Roadster, version 2.5, for a spell in the garage, which goes from a two-speed to a single speed transmission, has some revised bodywork front an back, interior upgrades to add more polish and the targa will roll an EPA-certified 245 miles on a charge. Follow the jump for his lengthy take on it, and to hear him compare it to his 1909 Baker Electric.

      Jay loves 'dem Teslers!

      Usually Jay talks a lot, sometimes over the other person. I'm saying that as a complaint, but as an observation leading to my other observation...

      Jay didn't say too much here... seemed to be content to enjoy the scenery. I wonder why =p

      Who considered the touchscreen an "upgrade"? Aside from that I'm glad that they stuck with analog gauges and not went the way of the digital speedo. Classic.

        She seemed to know her stuff too.

        I very much like Jay Leno's Garage. Interesting to see all the different kinds of car.

        I always day dream having a collection like that.

      At least they are getting a driving range where you can go more than to work and back before you need a charge. How's AAA going to respond to the "My battery is dead, I'm in Death Valley and I need a charge"
