This sleek, fully-electric four-door luxury car seats five, or seven with the optional rear-facing jump seats. With its standard 75-kWh battery we found the Tesla could cover 235 miles on a single charge. The car can be charged in about 6 hours on a dedicated Tesla connector or it can be topped off for free at public Superchargers. Performance is exceptional, with quiet and thrilling acceleration, pinpoint handling, and a firm yet comfortable ride--particularly with the standard 19-inch tires and air suspension. The hatchback design aids versatility and the front trunk is a bonus. A huge iPad-like center touch screen interfaces with most functions but proves distracting. Other drawbacks include tight access, restricted visibility, and range limitations, especially in cold weather. All-wheel drive is now standard, and active safety features are available.
Alert
This vehicle can be outfitted with a semi-autonomous driving package. Consumer Reports believes automakers should take stronger steps to ensure that vehicles with those systems are designed, deployed, and marketed safely. Please heed all warnings, and keep your hands on the wheel.

Lows

Best Version to Get

We would get the 75D version (75 kWh battery with AWD). Luckily, the air suspension, once optional, became standard as of mid-July 2017 production. We would definitely stick to the 19-inch tires.
