Tesla Inc. is a pioneer in e-mobility. The model range has grown a lot since it was founded in 2003. We will introduce you to the different models.

Model S: business sedan with role model function

The Model S is considered to be the benchmark for electric business sedans and to keep it that way, the model is constantly being adapted. In addition, there are regular software updates that optimize range and operation. There are now three different versions of the Model S: Maximum reach, Plaid and Plaid +. The former is equipped with all-wheel drive including a dual motor. The other two with a three-engine all-wheel drive.

Good sound is also provided - with a 960 watt audio system and 22 speakers distributed throughout the interior.
