Tesla has just taken the automotive world by surprise once again by unveiling a new iteration of its Model S sedan without warning.
The changes are most noticeable in the interior of the vehicle, with a steering wheel cut in half and a 17-inch screen placed horizontally rather than vertically.
This interior presentation, even more refined than before, also incorporates a screen for the rear passengers, as well as additional legroom as well as an induction charging station housed in the armrest.
Tesla also notes the integration of a new audio system with 22 speakers of 960 watts. It promises!
Even more autonomy
While the entry-level version “Long Range” now promises a range of 663 kilometers, Tesla is adding a new variant Plaid + whose promised range exceeds 830 kilometers. Yes, you read correctly!
Recall that Tesla announced the arrival of a Plaid variant a few months ago. This three-engine model will offer an insane power of more than 1000 horsepower. We can thus go from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.1 seconds and cross the quarter mile in 9.23 seconds. Absolutely phenomenal!
This new version of the Tesla Model S can be ordered now for the sum of $ 114,900. The Model S Plaid will be offered from $ 159,990, or $ 30,000 less than what was promised by Tesla last September. Finally, the Model S Plaid + starts at $ 189,990.
A Model X Plaid
While at it, Tesla has also added a Plaid version of the Model X SUV to its order book. It can be ordered now for the sum of $ 159,900. It can go from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.6 seconds.
Tesla did not specify the estimated delivery date for these new variants.
