These images, as well as some details on the car, were just released by Tesla in its Q4 2020 earnings report.
The long-awaited refresh for the Model S has finally arrived and we must admit that the interior is where most of the radical changes are seen. The refreshed Model S is more Model 3 and Model Y-like now in appearance, although the chopped off steering wheel is rather odd. It’s cleaner-looking within and the massive screen is now more inline with the rest of Tesla’s newer offerings.
The rear of the Model S now contains a viewing screen, which is a welcome addition. The other changes within aren’t so noticeable, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more images and additional details on the interior alterations.
The exterior of the car looks much the same as some of the Plaid versions of the Model S that were spotted at the track testing recently. Basically, the outside looks a bit brawnier and sportier and more ready to pounce at a moment’s notice.
On the performance side, Tesla notes that the Model S Plaid changes include a new powertrain, including battery modules, battery packs and drive units. tesla further notes that the Model S and Model X now incorporate motor technology similar to the Model 3 and Model Y and that this enables the Model S to perform high-speed runs over and over again.
Tesla says that the Plaid Model S will be able to spring from 0-60 MPH in just under 2 seconds and run the quarter-mile in 9.3 seconds, which makes it faster than a Bugatti Chiron.
