Facelift for the Tesla model S

Palo Alto (United States), 13 April 2016

The fans of the brand are mostly convinced to sit in the world's most modern car Tesla. Certainly, the limousine series named model S impresses with tremendous electrical power and much coverage. But she's also been 2012 on the market. Like any conventional producer also, Tesla is therefore now a facelift.

Without a grill in the future

The model S is the concept very literally to take face lift, because the front loses its grille-imitation. You now more like those of the new Superstars of the Tesla model 3 and keeps only a small "moustache", which refers to the shape of the Tesla logo. This solution is already practiced in the electric SUV model X.

Starting in June 2016

What is otherwise still changed? The S model gets a more powerful charger for fast charging stations and two new wood for the Interior, the HEPA air filtration from the model X (which should fend off even biological weapons). In addition to keep turning the power screw and a P100D model on the market. Currently the offer consists of the 70 with rear-wheel drive, the 70 d with all-wheel drive as well as the 90 d and the P90D, both only with all-wheel drive. The number refers to the capacity of the battery in kilowatt hours. In Germany, the lifted model launches S end of June 2016 to prices from 82,700 euros. (rh)
