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.

"Over 37000 miles. Door handle stuck is only issue in 3 years. Working on trading for a 90D, more range and refinements."

"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."

Pros: "Efficiency, touch controls and a joy to drive"

Cons: "Too few cup holders, missing a couple features"

"I've driven lots of nice cars, from BMW's to Porsche's, and my Model S is the best car I've ever owned or driven. To be able to combine the performance of an exceptional sports car with comfort of a luxury car AND the efficiency better than any hybrid is what I find to be most remarkable. Range is the biggest compromise, but my range so far has been close to rated (200+ miles on regular charge with the 85kw battery and limited use of climate control), which is fine for me 95% of the time (will swap with my wife's car for longer trips where I don't want to worry about it). Also, love the touch screen center stack...definitely ahead of its time and it works great. The car has a feel of quality. Yes, it's missing some features (parking sensors, blind spot monitor, etc), but the sum of the car more than makes up for the lack of a couple missing options. I have also had a couple minor hiccups -- defective 3G antenna needed to be replaced and waiting on a fix to the tire pressure warning that keeps popping up, but overall, I love the car. Best advise for anyone doubting the performance or otherwise on the fence is to drive the car."
