2016 Tesla Model S What's new for 2016? 
2016 Tesla Model S

The latest Model S includes a new, lower priced rear-drive 70 trim, a 90kWh upgrade for the P85D that increases range by six percent and a new Ludicrous mode that bumps the Model S's zero-to-60-mph time to a ridiculous 2.8 seconds.

Tesla updates its cars more like Apple updates its iPhones, issuing software updates frequently, and the occasional gotta-have-it hardware changes whenever it darn well feels like it. This year, along with the software, is the new all-wheel-drive P85D that literally offers "Insane" acceleration, while the 70D becomes the new base model.

2014 Tesla Model S What's new for 2014?

Tesla model year changes do not coincide with updates and improvements. Rather, Tesla simply adds features and options as they become technically feasible. Hence the center console data screen shows fields for blind-spot warning, lane-departure warning and all-wheel drive, all desirable, but with none not yet offered on the 2014 car.

For 2013, the Model S now has the ability to receive over the air software updates, providing buyers with new features and services as they become available.

About Tesla Model S

Elon Musk might very well be this century's version of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford rolled into one. In the 2016 Tesla Model S electric luxury-performance sedan, Musk has created not only a viable alternative to the traditional combustion-engine car, but a vehicle that has captured the public's imagination. With its sleek design, impressive range and varied performance upgrade packages, the Model S should scare the heck out of OPEC. Tesla has even taken the bold step of building its own infrastructure, installing a network of "Supercharger" charging stations at various locations across the country. With performance abilities that dwarf some supercars and a price well in line with most full-size luxury sedans, prohibitive arguments against owning a Model S are few.

"Amazing car. So fun to drive, high tech and constantly updating itself. My only gripe is that the build quality could use some help. I've had several rattles in the car from loose pieces and bad clips. Other than that the car is perfect in every way. If you're really worried about range, keep track of how many miles you drive each day for a month. In nearly all, except the very rare cases, I'd bet that consumers will rarely drive more than 100 miles per day, which means you can go 2 days without charging. Every night you get a full battery, so mileage range is never an issue."

"Do the math... *Gas was $700/mo... now zero. *No engine to maintain. *Electric bill before Model S was $250 and rising. *Solar panels and night charging... *electric bill is now $150. *Price of a 400 mile round trip via Superchargers = $4 [$0.11/kw to refill the battery at home after the journey.] *Time savings not going to gas stations, oil changes, service. *72,000 miles and 30 months later we love our Model S almost as much as the day we got it."

"This car has the best service of any car I have owned in the past 40 years (Mercedes, BMW, Audi, Toyota, Nissan, Honda, etc.). This must be exactly why Elon Musk doesn't allow dealerships. Musk's statement "if anything goes wrong with the car I built, I need to take care of it and not charge my customers," is unheard of in today's automobile industry. The result is very happy customers and a car that is superior to any in its class! The word is that Tesla S is an expensive car, however, it costs much less than a Mercedes S class and is no more expensive than a high end BMW, Porsche, Audi, Toyota, etc. I just drove my Tesla S to the East Coast and back to the West Coast for a total of 8,200 miles. Not a single problem with my Tesla S (now at 60,000 miles) and not a single incident of range anxiety thanks to the growing network of super chargers Elon Musk built from East to West. Since the super charging for Tesla cars is for free, I got a free ride! Needless to say, my other gas guzzling cars have been in the garage for two years now since a full charge of 250+ miles for my Tesla S is less then $3,00. No need to spend money on gas for a full tank and pollute the environment! Thank you, Elon Musk! Your company is the rare bird in the automobile industry, and you are a man of great vision! My next car is . . . guess . . . a Tesla S or Tesla X."
