Tesla unveils facelifted Model S

Tesla unveils facelifted Model S

American carmaker Tesla has been in the news lately for its electrifying Model 3 which incidentally will be sold here in India as well. Now, the brand has taken the wraps off the facelifted version of their first ever mainstream offering, the Model S.    

Like the Model 3 and the Model X, the facelifted Model S gets a really slim grille design that is edged by reshaped LED headlights. The lack of a conventional grille might not go well with everyone, however, Tesla has retained the otherwise brilliant design of the Model S. Inside, Tesla has added new optional and standard features such as heated front seats and different wood trimmings to spruce up the cabin. 

The facelifted Model S continues to be offered with four different configurations for the drivetrain. The entry-level Model S 70 has a 315bhp electric motor that allows the car to accelerate from standstill to 100kmph in 5.5 seconds. The higher-spec Model S 70D, on the other hand, features an all-wheel drive and a dual-motor system that develops 328bhp. The 70D can accelerate from 0-100kmph in 5.2 seconds and also has a longer driving range compared to the Model S 70.

Moving on to the seriously powerful iterations, the Model S 90D has two electric motors that develop 417bhp and allow the car to hit 100kmph in just 4.2 seconds and hit a top speed of 250kmph. Lastly, there’s the supercar-rivalling Model S P90D that has 463bhp and over 950Nm of torque, enabling this full-fat luxury sedan to accelerate from 0-100kmph in just 3.1 seconds. However, if that’s not enough, Tesla even offers the Ludicrous mode upgrade which takes the horsepower figure to 532bhp and allows the Model S to hit the tonne in just 2.8 seconds. In terms of recharging abilities, the facelifted Model S has an upgraded 48amp charger which Tesla says would bring down the time it takes to recharge this vehicle.

While we won’t get the facelifted Model S here, Tesla has made it official that they will sell the Model 3 here in India, however, that’s still a good couple of years away.
