A German environmental minister selected a Tesla Model S as his official car, but returned it after a few months claiming it was too cramped to work in the back seat and too much trouble to keep charged when on official business.
A Tesla Model S P100D recorded 920 pounds feet of torque during a recent Drag Times dyno test, but the testers think if they could eliminate wheelspin and get the battery charge closer to 100%, the number could be as much as 950 pound feet. Astonishing!
Tesla has added a glass roof option to the Model S. The $1,500 roof adds a spacious feel to the interior of the car and updates the look of the car to current standards. Expect lots of customers to select this new feature.
The first fatality in a Tesla Model S being driven in autonomous mode happen June 29 on a highway in Florida. Tesla says bright sunshine reflecting off a white truck crossing the roadway caused Autopilot not to see the other vehicle.
