Tesla has just renewed its Model S with three versions, including Plaid + which offers impressive performance.
Tesla announced the first major redesign of the Model S since the launch of the electric sedan in 2012.
New design, better autonomy
This new version, which will be delivered from September 2021 in France , features a new exterior design, a simplified interior and the possibility of choosing a version with three engines, named “[ 19459010] Plaid + » , more powerful. This version of the Model S can achieve 840 kilometers of range and its acceleration allows it to go from 0 to 100 kilometers in less than 2.1 seconds (top speed of 320 km / h).
The model “Grande Autonomie ” is announced with 663 kilometers of autonomy and the version “Plaid ” , normal with a range of 628 kilometers. Note that the “Performance” version has completely disappeared from the catalog, to make way for the three aforementioned versions.
This new Model S has been slightly revised on the outside, but the biggest visual change is on the inside. Tesla has removed the touchscreen installed in portrait mode in favor of a new 17-inch display with a resolution of 2200 x 1300 pixels. Just like on the Model 3 and the Model Y , this screen is now placed in landscape mode, but with much finer borders.
There is also a U-shaped steering wheel, like on the second-generation Roadster, as well as an 8-inch screen behind the center console for rear passengers. Note also the presence of a tinted glass roof, an automatic opening and closing trunk, wireless charging at the front, but also a USB-C socket for each passenger in the vehicle.
Another novelty, and not the least, its graphic power of 10 teraFLOPS which makes it a true video game console on wheels .
