With the launch of Tesla S, the company has added another asset to its profile of the top-notch, luxurious electric cars that kickstarted the transition ensuring the use of 100% clean energy.

Since the release of its first-ever Electric Vehicle (EV) in 2008, the company has become a symbol of an extravagant, lavish ride while ensuring that the natural habitat of our planet remains undisturbed.

Even after this car, in some aspects, falls a little short against some rivals in the EV market, it still proves too much of a contestant in the arena. The model S Plaid has a range of up to 405 miles on a single charge. Its upgraded battery systems ensure swift long drives without compromising performance.

Furthermore, the 1020-hp tri-motor Plaid performance model accelerates to 60 mph in 2.1 seconds and touches the bar of 155mph in 9.23 seconds, the quickest acceleration in any vehicle in production.


Its optimised exterior surfaces make it the most aerodynamic EV car on earth. It is built for speed, endurance and range, as its enhanced aerodynamics and broader chassis provide more responsive performance, allowing you to take turns faster and with greater confidence.


The bent roof-line of the Model S smartly conceals a rear liftgate that opens to reveal a massive 26-cubic-foot trunk, able to store eight carry-on-size luggage without having to fold down the back seats. A huge underfloor container in the rear storage compartment compensates for the lack of small item storage space throughout the interior, particularly in the back seat.

The interior comprises console-grade gaming, with a 17” touchscreen with left-right tilt that offers 2200 x 1300 resolution, offering exceptional responsiveness for gaming, movies and more.
