Review

The Tesla Model S comes with stunning performance, a feature-packed infotainment system, fine comfort and handling, lots of passenger space and a huge boot. And it's one of the easiest electric cars to live with, thanks to Tesla's brilliant Supercharging network and the Model S's long range, making it a sensible choice if you do lots of miles.

Trim: Long Range

The Model S comes with lots of luxuries, including 'vegan leather' upholstery, four-zone climate control, LED headlights, electrically adjustable front seats, autonomous driving modes, power-folding door mirrors, metallic paint, heated seats (front and rear), a heated steering wheel, a panoramic sunroof and keyless entry, via an app on your smartphone. Plus, the 17in touchscreen that dominates the dashboard features internet connectivity with access to Google Maps, Netflix and a host of computer games.

Engine: 307kW 90kWh Dual Motor

Even this entry-level model can blast from 0-60mph in just 3.7sec, plus its acceleration is seamless; electric motors deliver their maximum torque from zero revs onwards, so there’s no need for gears. The official range between charges is 379 miles.
