2015 Tesla Model S What's new for 2015? 
2015 Tesla Model S

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.

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.

About Tesla Model S

Designed from the start as an EV, the 2015 Tesla Model S is a roomy 5-passenger electric sedan boasting excellent cargo room with advantages in range and performance that its rivals can't touch. Tesla itself is run more like a tech company than an automaker, making for a unique ownership experience that could hint at the future of the auto industry. For now though, the Tesla Model S stands alone, with its long cruising range and network of "Supercharger" charging stations taking some of the guesswork out of recharging. This year, the all-wheel-drive, high-performance P85D Model S debuts. It can blow the doors off virtually any sedan you'd care to mention...and a lot of supercars as well.

"Skeptical at first but then won over by the incredible customer service from Tesla's executive level down, I purchased. Thus persuaded to change alliance from BMW 5 to Tesla Model S, Elon Musk's land-rocket is everything I was assured it would be. The stunningly gorgeous design of Model S and the incredible instantaneous torque put this baby into a luxury sedan class all of its own. It is simply the most exquisite vehicle I have owned so far. Oh - and as a big-time bonus, zero emissions! What does a Tesla cost to drive per month? Around $40."

"Everything about this car is a ton of fun. From the 17" Touchscreen instead of Dashboard Buttons to the immediate and smooth acceleration no matter how fast you're going, you'll enjoy everything about it."

Tesla: Model S P85

"Driving the Tesla: Model S can only be described as a massive leap forward into the distant future! Not only can this car out-perform just about EVERYTHING on the road (in real world driving), it does it with amazing style, comfort, and handling! I own the P85 Performance version (85 kWh battery) and if you offered me a 2013 Porsche 911GT for it, I would quickly turn you down. Because the Model S Peformance is such a far superior car in all levels of eveything, it even makes the most sought-after vehicels on the road feel obsolete by comparison. The torque of the Model S is so instant, it's already gone by the time the Porsche has sent the fuel to the pistons, cranked the rods, found the gear, and spooled up the turbos. Everyone I have given a ride to in my Model S says exactly the same thing... "It's a roller-coaster on wheels!!!" Because it is insanely fast, smooth, and completely silent. Best of all, it cost pennies to drive, has more room than most SUV-crossover's. Never mind technology that even makes Bentley and Roles-Royce appear like ox-carts from the 1800's. I have already driven 270 miles on a single charge, and charging it at home is a breeze! It's not a wonder why the critics at Motor Trend gave it the most prestigious 'Car of the Year' award for 2013 (and the accolades just keep on coming). Tesla has single-handedly brought back the prestige American once had in the automotive industry."
