With Tesla’s Model 3 receiving lots of positive responses ever since its launch, Tesla hasn’t forgotten its previous top selling cars. To prove this, the company has updated its Model S, making the electric sedan even more better than before. Some of the changes includes giving the Model S the same nose treatment as the Model X SUV and headlights to match, Steerable LED headlamps and others.
Tesla has also upgraded the standard charger in the Model 3 to 48 amps, better than the previous 40 amps, this means faster EV recharge. According to Tesla, in the right outlet it should be good for more than 25 miles per range added each hour. Upgrade to the charging system decreases the time spent plugged into the wall.
Owners also can choose an optional Tesla HEPA air filtration system from the Model X, Musk calls it “Bioweapon Defense Mode”— which is now available on the Model S. This is expected to have 100 times efficiency than filters found in other cars, with the potential to remove “at least 99.97% of particulate exhaust pollution and effectively all allergens, bacteria and other contaminants” from the air circulating around the cabin. The interior has also been tweaked, now buyers can choose from two new decors: “figured ash wood” and “dark ash wood.” Also included as part of the upgrade is the adaptive (steerable) headlamps, each unit comprises 14 LED elements.
The Model S has gotten nicer over time, but also more expensive. As of launch one could get one for under $60,000, that’s in 2012. Now the price range is from $71,000 for a rear drive Model S 70 with no options to $141,000 for the all-wheel-drive P90D Performance with all options chosen such as the Speed Upgrade, carbon fiber spoiler, premium audio, air suspension, autopilot and rear facing seats. What do you expect? it’s a luxury sedan, with upgrades such as these folks wouldn’t mind the price….. well not all folks.
