The Tesla Roadster was pushed off the sales arena last year when Lotus stopped supplying its chassis, as the British carmaker ended production of the platform, used by the Elise and Exige.

Tesla is currently focusing on the Model S sedan, which is almost ready to hit the market, as well as on the Model X crossover, which will be shown to the public for the first time soon. However, the company hasn’t forgotten the Roadster and is planning to give us a second generation of the car.

This was expected to arrive in 2014, but Tesla CEO Elon Musk has now announced that the launched will be pushed back to late 2015. This is because the company will also be busy preparing the introduction of the promised affordable electric sedan, which will ride on the carmaker’s third-generation electric platform and should arrive in the first half of 2015.
