The new stuffing of the cars makes these electric cars even more interesting.
Tesla updated two of its models at once – the Model S and Model X. The Model S received its first significant update since 2012. First of all, it is about the things that you don’t notice from the outside – the interior and the powertrain. Although it’s easy to distinguish the new Tesla from the old ones: they don’t have fog lights in the front bumper, and all the chrome elements are now black.
But the interior is very effective. And the main thing that attracts attention is the steering wheel, as if from science-fiction movies:
It is not clear how comfortable it is to drive a car with such a steering wheel. So far, Tesla only claims that the Model S is “the best car for driving and driving. But we can’t verify that yet.
In general, the car interiors now look like a place where an astronaut in a SpaceX spacesuit would look very organic:
The interior is minimalist, so there is not much detail. The large 17-inch display with a resolution of 2,200 × 1,300 dots also attracts attention. You won’t be surprised by the size here – the pre-styled versions of the Tesla were equipped with displays of the same diagonal. But now they have changed its orientation from portrait to landscape. The reason was the high performance of the car, which can be used… In games:
“You can play The Witcher 3, Cyberpunk 2077 and more.”
Hopefully, the game mode will not be available on the go. In addition to this display, there will be a 12.3-inch driver’s display, which displays all the currently relevant information about the trip.
Under the gaming screen there is a smartphone tray with wireless charging for two devices at once. There are USB Type-C ports for each passenger. Very convenient.
The interior has become more spacious due to the new shape of the seats. In addition, there is a three-zone climate control, as well as a small 8-inch touchscreen display for the rear passengers:
The interior is equipped with 22 speakers with active noise reduction. The total power of the multimedia reaches 960 watts.
By the way, if you don’t understand why the media is now expressing wild enthusiasm about the new Tesla Model S and Model X saloons, here’s a photo:
It was one of the more expensive Tesla Model S. To see it.
The new interior, in addition to white, can be black or cream:
So far, the updated models will each have two versions – the fast Plaid and the Long Range. The first has three electric motors, and the second has two. All models will be all-wheel drive.
