If you can live with the longer refueling times, owning a 2018 Tesla Model S can be a very satisfying experience. Priced $15,000 less than an entry-level Mercedes-Benz S 450, the Model S delivers impressive performance, advanced driver-assist features and excellent scores. Opt for the P100D and you’ll experience 60 mph in a mere 2.5 seconds.
New Features and Revisions
In keeping with its non-traditional image, Tesla does not do model-year specific upgrades. The base 2018 Model S now has a standard 75-kWh powertrain and all-wheel drive. The unlimited free supercharging offer is reduced to 400 kWh per year, after which the owner must pay a fee.
