Tesla Model S new interiors + performance variants unveiled

Tesla has introduced two new variants of the Model S – Plaid and Plaid+. Both get three electric motors with an identical 0-100 km/h time of sub 2.1 seconds.

Tesla has updated the Model S with new features. While the exterior design remains similar to the outgoing car, the interiors and the powertrain have been reworked.

On the inside, the car now gets a chopped-off steering wheel with a U-shaped hand grip area. It gets two circular jog dials on either side. The main touchscreen is now a 17-inch unit in a landscape orientation compared to the portrait layout of the earlier display. The rear seats get additional bolstering and a smaller display unit for the rear occupants between the front two seats.

Also included is a new gaming computer with 10 teraflops of processing power and wireless controller compatibility which allows gaming from any seat. The car also gets wireless and USB-C fast charging for every passenger and multi-device Bluetooth.

Tesla has announced that these upgrades can be expected on the Model X in the near future.
