  • Model S is the safest, quickest car on the road—with industry-leading performance, range, and storage.

    As we just reported, Tesla is planning an interior design refresh for the Model S and Model X. You can read our report for the timing and reason.

    The other thing buyers should know is that five years after the first Supercharger site opened, Tesla remains the sole electric-car maker whose cars have access to highway fast-charging that largely blankets the lower 48 states and permits the car to add up to miles of range in 30 or 40 minutes. Despite this, the Model S is in our opinion, the best electric car currently on sale. The longest electric range of any car on the road—up to miles Recharge miles in 30 minutes at any Supercharger location. Even with the optional sunroof, headroom is adequate, though rear-seat riders will note the cabin narrows starting at shoulder height to cut cross-sectional area for reduced aerodynamic drag.

    The Tesla Model S luxury sedan safely can be called a vehicle that history will remember. The all-electric Model S remains the fastest plug-in car in volume production, though those qualities come at a price.

That means model years mean relatively little: The other thing buyers should know is that five years after the first Supercharger site opened, Tesla remains the sole electric-car maker whose cars have access to highway fast-charging that largely blankets the lower 48 states and permits the car to add up to miles of range in 30 or 40 minutes.

    That makes cross-country trips in Teslas uneventful, if still slightly slower than powering straight through on gasoline. The Tesla Model S was a remarkable achievement from a startup California company few in the industry took seriously until they drove its first all-electric cars in It scared the daylights out of German luxury makers, all of whom have competitors coming for or It will still cost you as much as a high-end German sedan, but it does things no German luxury model today can do—namely, drive entirely free of tailpipe emissions.

    We give the Model S 7 points out of 10 for its overall design. We add a point for both an above average exterior and interior. The redesign of the front end dispensed with the large black oval shape that stood in for a grille; a rounded flat panel with a slight lip at the top now leads off the front, matching the frontal design of the later Model X and Model 3.

    One of the most commented-on exterior features is the ability of the chrome door handles to extend for use when the driver nears the car, then retract flush to reduce drag once the car gets underway. Inside, muted colors trim an unadorned space whose focal point is the huge inch touchscreen that stands proud of the center of the dash.

    Soft-touch surfaces abound and leather seats are available, but few interior controls—knobs, dials, and levers—mar the elegant simplicity. The screens remain clear and crisp, with bright, colorful, high-resolution graphics. We rate the Model S at 8 out of 10 for performance, awarded it two extra points above the average of 5 for acceleration and ride that are above average, plus another for its status as the defining battery-electric car of the era, in terms of range and performance.

    The standard 75D and D versions of the Model S are powered by a pair of kilowatt horsepower motors, one per axle. The higher-performance PD swaps in a more powerful kw hp rear motor, keeping the same front motor, along with some upgrades to its power electronics and various electronic control systems.

    Even in the lesser models, the maximum electric torque available from 0 rpm provides swift victory in stoplight drag races. The all-but-silent powertrain and lack of wind noise make it far too easy to exceed 60 mph even on city streets. Despite its all-aluminum construction, the Tesla is a heavy car, but its battery weight is as low in the chassis as it can be, and it corners flat and confidently. The optional air suspension copes well with more types of surfaces and road conditions than the conventional steel fittings on the most basic version—and boost the ride from firm and controlled to above average.

    Just as it did when launched, the Tesla Model S seats four adults comfortably, and five in a pinch. We rate the Model S at 7 out of 10 points for comfort, adding a point each for its comfortable front seats and its superior cargo capacity. The front accommodations in the Model S offer no serious caveats. The rear seats have decent space, but it can take a bit of effort to get to them. The rear door openings are somewhat smaller than the actual doors, requiring taller adults to do some minor folding and ducking to get in.
