In December last year, we heard about Tesla’s plan to shut down production lines of the Model S and Model X. While the company closed the manufacturing units, engineers were head bent to give consumers something new. The result was a redesigned Tesla Model S and Tesla Model X that will land this spring. Tesla has revealed some images of the exterior and interior of these electric vehicles.
Looking at the exterior images, we find more aggressive sides and a sleeker hood. The interior has received special attention from the engineers, who gave it a more refined and smooth look. Yes, the dash cluster is still the same, but both the Model S and Model X have a yoke-style steering wheel giving us a hint of 80s’ nostalgia.
One great addition to these luxury electric vehicles is a small touchscreen fitted in the center console to entertain the rear passengers. Tesla has indeed shifted its focus toward entertainment, and this screen is a testament of that. Hopefully, this touch display will let rear occupants indulge in gaming and of course, watching movies.
Besides exterior and interior changes, Tesla has promised to improve the powertrain, battery pack, battery module, and drive units for the redesigned Model S and Model X.
The company says the Model S Long Range will hit the roads in March with 412 miles rating. According to Elon Musk's tweet, the Plaid aimed to deliver a 390-mile range and 1,020 horsepower should arrive in February.
The top-of-the-line Plaid+ intending to create 1,100 horsepower and deliver a 520-mile range will arrive in the last quarter of this year. Featuring a tri-motor setup, it can go from 0 to 60 mph in less than 2.0 seconds.
Expect the updated Model X to arrive in April 2021.
