Standard features include a leather-wrapped steering wheel
For $109,000 you can buy a vehicle with a helluva lot more features than you'll find on the 2009 Tesla Roadster, but nothing on the road today offers quite the same "wow factor" that accompanies the Tesla Roadster.
The base Tesla Roadster is somewhat Spartan, but as long as you realize that you're paying for a high-powered sportscar and not a luxury cruiser, then you won't be disappointed. Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com show that the base Tesla Roadster boasts some features you might not expect; Motor Trend reports that the Tesla 2009 Roadster "has cruise control, heated seats, air-con, remote locking and electric windows—they might be standard on any Korean econobox, but not always on hardcore quasi-track cars, so they're worth noting." Other standard features on the Tesla Roadster include a "leather-wrapped steering wheel, [and] a CD stereo with iPod connectivity," according to Cars.com.
If you're already considering splurging on the 2009 Tesla Roadster, you might as well go all the way and add what few options are available for this Tesla 2009 model. Unfortunately, you'll be forced to add at least one, as TheCarConnection.com's editors note that even the most basic recharging cord is not included in the base price. The singular option package on the 2009 Tesla Roadster, according to Cars.com reviewers, is the "optional Electronics Group [that] includes Bluetooth cell phone connectivity, a navigation radio, Sirius Satellite Radio, and a subwoofer."
The 2009 Tesla Roadster's interior features don't stack up well against those in a Porsche, but that’s not why shoppers are looking to it anyway.
