About the Tesla Model S

Launched in 2012, the Tesla Model S is a record-breaking luxury all-electric sedan/grand tourer. It has been carefully developed over the years to encompass many power ratings and capabilities, all of them sector-leading, especially in range. The minimum range on the Model S was what helped people realize the real viability of all-electric cars, and was among the first cars to break the 400-mile range barrier.

Teslas are not just characterized by their range, but also their style. The sleek body is complemented by an equally sophisticated interior, including the biggest infotainment display of just about any car out there. In addition, the public has been wowed by their technical prowess. For example, drivers get over-the-air updates that can even fix mechanical issues. They also enjoy very advanced self-driving capabilities through the Autopilot feature.
