The quickest production of the fastest car ever! Tesla’s newest Model S Plaid is said to be the fastest accelerating car to be ever made. With a top speed of 200mph and a range of 390 miles, the Model S also provides a 0-60 mph sprint in 1.99 seconds. “It is faster than a Porsche, safer than a Volvo,” is how Elon Musk decided to put it during the event.
Although not much has changed over the years in terms of looks, the new Model S focuses more on functionality. The interiors of the car to are pretty simplified. The new landscape centre display comes with 2200×1300 resolution, ultra-bright, true colours and exceptional responsiveness. A newly added feature in the Model S is the screen behind the centre console for rear-seated passengers.
The stalkless U-shaped butterfly steering wheel is a highlight of the Model S. It also comes with a cockpit screen behind it, which was missing in the Model 3 and Model Y.
Rear passengers are treated to an 8-inch screen powered by a chip capable of 10 teraflops of processing power allowing passengers to play games with wireless controller support.
With a fold-down armrest and more room, the seats are generously bolstered heated seats for all passengers and ventilated front seats.
Priced at $129,990, the Model S is said to charge another $1,200 for the destination. It will also cost an extra $1,500 for black, grey and blue, and $2,500 for a red option making the white Model S the only no-exterior cost colour.
