The history of the Model S

Second electric car launched by Tesla after the first generation of roadster, the Model S has largely contributed to making the brand known to the general public. Revealed in 2019, it has been marketed in the United States since 2012 and in Europe since 2013. Initially launched with a small battery of 60 kWh, the Model S has since stopped evolving.

After a first restyling in 2016, the Californian sedan was presented in early 2021 in a new version including both aesthetic and technical improvements, and a reduced range.

Tesla Model S motorization and performance

The model is displayed fairly impressive performance. It is now available in two large versions:

  • Great autonomy With a Dual Motor all -wheel drive authorizing 250 km/h of maximum speed and a 0 to 100 km/h shot in 3.2 seconds
  • Plaid, A version with three electric motors combining 1020 power horsepower for a 0 to 100 km/h shot in 2.1 seconds and a top speed of 322 km/h. Acceleration could still be improved by its release, according to Elon Musk.

PLAID+ had to garnish the ranks of the range and display an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in less than two seconds, but Elon Musk itself announced its cancellation in June 2021.
