Although Tesla had been in the automotive industry since 2009, it was their awe-inspiring flagships, the Model S sedan and Model X SUV that were launched in 2012 and 2015 respectively that took them to the status that they enjoy right now. While having a few years under their credit, the new Tesla Model X and Model S are going into up-gradation with a new interior and also a hot Plaid performance power-train.
Out-of-the-world steering wheel to woo drivers
As far as the interior is concerned, it now sports a bigger size 17-inch horizontal screen rather than the old vertical unit. Moreover, there is also another 8.0-inch touch-screen at the back for keeping the rear passengers more entertained. It is also a fact that even with the existence of the flashy screens the show will be stolen by a weirdly shaped steering wheel.
Tesla gets all the attention with its marvelous design
While having so many other achievements to its credit, Tesla is also a renowned name when it comes to breaking conventions especially when we talk about design. However, the peculiar shape of the steering wheel may or may not be part of the final production car owing to the legal requirements in various markets. In addition, all knobs and stalks have also been put to an end and all controls will now be taken full care of by the central touch-screen or steering wheel buttons.
Both the models flex their muscles to show-off power
The most interesting part of the refresh must be the hardcore Plaid versions that are elaborated by Tesla as “beyond Ludicrous”. Both the Model S and Model X Plaid versions have also got you covered in the power department as both of them get energy from a tri-motor set up that churns out 1006 hp.
As far as the Model S is concerned, this power translates to a stupendous 0-60 miles per hour (0-96 kph) time of just 1.99 seconds while making it the first of its kind production car to perform the feat in less than 2 seconds. Moreover, the 0-100 kph time will be only above 2 seconds. The top speed will amaze you with 321 kph but you also need to have the right kind of tyres. When we talk about the Plaid+ version of the Model S, you will find it really interesting to know that it can get 1100 hp and a range of 836 km, the longest so far of any kind EV in production. The Tesla Model X Plaid takes half a second comparatively more than the Model S Plaid in order to hit the 100 yet, it can still get to be the swiftest acceleration of any SUV.
Truth be told, Tesla’s flagships are hopeful to regain the attention that was once enjoyed by them until the smaller Model Y and Model 3 came along and new entrants from Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Audi and BMW attempted to carve their own niche. As far as the price is concerned, the Plaid is priced from as much as US$ 139,900 (Dhs 514,000) in the United States.The best thing about stupendous cars such as Tesla is that they will woo you right away in the very first look. However, the price has always been something that keeps certain diehards away from these loveable buddies. However, there are also certain platforms such as Carswitch that give you an amazing opportunity to buy or sell any kinds of second hand cars in Dubai. You can buy your favorite car not only at affordable prices but also without any hassle.
