The Tesla Model S

The Tesla Model S is now 11 years old, but it’s still one of the best EVs on the market, and the automaker has slashed prices this year in the face of new competition. There are two versions, the base dual-motor model with 670 horsepower and a 405-mile range, and the wild 1,020-horsepower, 395-mile range Plaid. Both are fast, but the Plaid can dust off million-dollar hypercars while still offering family hatchback practicality and Accord-like docility around town. The awkward yoke steering wheel is less convincing (and has now been made optional), and the Model S feels increasingly old and downmarket compared to newer rivals.

What’s New

Style & Design:

The Model S is very familiar after 11 years of production, and while it’s aged pretty well no longer draws a crowd like the Lucid Air does. That said, it’s hard to find fault with designer Franz von Holzhausen’s original lines or the updates that have come over the years. It looks athletic in a way the i7 and EQS don’t. Sadly there are still only five colors and anything but “White” means paying $1,500 extra or more.

The interior is spare and clean, and the screens and the heavily tinted glass roof look great. The materials aren’t bad either, but all this open expanse just ends up looking very plain and boring compared to the opulent cabins from BMW, Lucid and Mercedes-Benz. The S just doesn’t feel like a six-figure ride.
