Tesla Updates Model S for 2021 Adding Power and Range
Tesla is launching it's first significant update of the flagsip Model S since it was introduced in 2012. While changes to the exterior are minor but include lower facia revisions, and a new standard large glass roof, the interior gets a pretty thorough overall. That includes an almost aircraft style steering wheel, a switch from a vertical to a 17-inch landscape layout for the large center touchscreen, now similar to the Model Y, and overall richer looking materials. The sterring wheel also includes controls that allow Tesla to eliminate steering column stalks. A new vent-less HVAC system, similar to the Model 3, also seems to be inplay. Mechanically, there is a new long range performance option that promises over 500 miles in range, with a 0-60 time of under two seconds. Look for the latest Model S to begin shipping in March.
