- The Tesla Model S, the company’s oldest vehicle still in production, recently got a range boost, to 600+ kilometres.
- As the Model 3 and Model Y assume the bulk of Tesla’s sales, it’s easy to forget about the company’s amazing first real design.
- But the Model S has held up stupendously well over almost a decade.
All cars have Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive, adaptive air suspension, premium interior and sounds.
- Range(WLTP) – 600 Kilometres
- Top speed : 148 kmph
- Acceleration 3.7 seconds 0-100 kmph
Safety – High Impact Protection
Model S is built from the ground up as an electric vehicle, with high-strength architecture and a floor-mounted battery pack allowing for incredible impact protection.
- Long Range £ 77,980
- Performance £ 92,980
Tesla All-Wheel Drive has two independent motors for improved redundancy, each with only one moving part for minimal maintenance and maximum durability. Unlike traditional all-wheel drive systems, they digitally control torque to the front and rear wheels for far better handling and traction control.

The currently enabled features require active driver supervision and do not make the vehicle autonomous. Some features require turn signals and are limited in range. The activation and use of these features are dependent on achieving reliability far in excess of human drivers as demonstrated by billions of miles of experience, as well as regulatory approval, which may take longer in some jurisdictions. As these self-driving features evolve, your car will be continuously upgraded through over-the-air software updates.
The Tesla Model S is a great four-door luxury sports car that just also happens to be an electric vehicle. A large, low-slung hatchback, it easily seats five, or seven in a pinch when fitted with rear-facing jump seats. With its optional 85 kWh battery, the Tesla can travel between 180 and 225 miles per charge, at least twice as far as other electrics. It can also be fully charged in as little as five hours. Performance is exceptional, with thrilling acceleration, pinpoint handling, and a superb ride. A huge iPad-like center screen controls nearly all accessory functions. Drawbacks include tight access and restricted visibility. All-wheel drive versions were added in 2014, along with an optional Autopilot suite of advanced driver assistance features. In 2015, Tesla dropped the two smaller battery choices, making the standard battery 70-kWh, and offered all-wheel drive. Other changes for 2015 included standard forward-collision warning with active emergency braking, and blind-spot and lane-departure warning. As of 2019 the Model S is only available with the 100 kWh battery. The 75 kWh version is discontinued. Other changes for 2019 include Tesla’s new Navigate on Autopilot software, which lets drivers choose whether the car can automatically change lanes without their input.
