Tesla Model S Overview

This sporty four-door luxury car seats five (or seven with the optional rear-facing jump seats) and just happens to be electric. With its optional 85-kWh battery­-the largest available--it can travel between 180 and 225-miles per charge and can be fully charged in as little as 5-hours on a dedicated Tesla connector. Performance is exceptional, with thrilling acceleration, pinpoint handling, and a firm yet comfortable ride. A huge iPad-like center screen controls many functions. Drawbacks include tight access, restricted visibility, and range limitations in cold weather. Reliability has been average. All-wheel drive, Autopilot active safety features, and a 691-hp performance model, the P85D, are new.
