The first major remodeling of Tesla’s wisely held Model S sedan was introduced in April 2016. And the redesign is spectacular. The front of the car is the most distinguished modification that does not have the faux-grille from the prior model in favor of a snub-nose look, which is very much alike the Tesla’s Model 3, the reasonable car of the company taking up the production following year.
Through this new revision, we supposed it would be great to bring to light all the amazing features and advancements of the remodeled Model S apart from its stunning looks. Let’s have a look.
27. The Model S can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour is just 2.8 seconds owing to the all-electric powertrain of the car. This is faster as compared to several supercars.
26. The exceptional battery structure makes the Model S stronger against side impacts and helps the car to stay implanted to the road. It is an exceptionally safe car due to its low center of gravity and weight.
25. The Model S has the biggest “crumple zones” in the industry that are those parts of the car which are designed to take in the major force of the impact. This is due to the fact that the car does not have an engine, fuel tank and exhaust system.
24. The Model S scans the road constantly with the help of bunch of cameras, sonar and radar systems in order to present real-time feedback, including active safety tech such as automatic emergency braking and side collision prevention. The Model S also assists Tesla’s Autopilot software that is devised to turn highway driving into less stressful and safer.
23. Moreover, Autopilot has a “summon” feature which helps your car to turn itself on and pull itself out of the garage or drive way to come meet you, with your music and air conditioning already programmed to your custom likings.
22. The HEPA air filtration system in Model S filters the outside air of viruses, bacteria, pollen and pollution previous to its circulation into the cabin. In addition to this, the bioweapon defense mode supplies medical-grade air quality without considering what’s happening outside.
21. In case you forget how to use a feature, the Model S contains the owner’s manual within the 17-inch touchscreen of the car at all times. Along with the addition of new features via over-the-air software updates, which include valuable attributes and an enriched experience, the on-screen owner’s manual is updated too.
20. Instead of a conventional physical key; the Model S key fob can open and close the doors, front trunk, rear hatch, and charge port.
19. They key fob is designed in such a way that it resembles the Model S. In order to open the front or rear trunk, double click that region of the key fob. You can click the key fob again while the rear lift gate is in motion to stop it.
18. There are numerous ways to open the charge port. . You can press and hold the rear trunk button on the key fob, but it can also be opened by means of the car’s touchscreen, by touching the port itself, or by pressing a button on any Tesla charge cable.
17. By turning on the “walk-away door lock” setting on the car’s touchscreen, the Model S will automatically lock itself once you’ve left the car and closed the door.
16. Once the Model S is locked, the handles are concealed and level with the doors. The handles will automatically appear as soon as the car senses that the key fob is drawing near the vehicle. You can also push in the door handles to have them hold out of the door.
15. In order to lock and unlock the doors from inside the car, you can simply touch the lock button at the top left corner of the touchscreen or use the key fob.
14. The construction of the steering wheel is such that the driver is in possession of controlling any feature of the vehicle without taking his hands away from the wheel.
13. To play, pause, skip and change the volume of your music or media, there are buttons on the left side of the steering wheel.
12. To regulate various Model S features, control Bluetooth-connected phones and complete voice commands, buttons on the right side of the wheel can be used. Several changes like climate control and display brightness can be changed by a menu button on the right scroll wheel.
11. The steering wheel is absolutely adjustable. There’s a small control lever on the left side of the column to move the wheel up or down, or telescope it in and out.
10. Another feature that makes the car easier to control in different settings is that you can actually change how much effort is required to turn the wheel. These three steering options can be located in the touchscreen display.
9. You can adjust the distance you want to keep between your car and the vehicle ahead of you if you have bought Tesla’s Autopilot software. Rotate the cruise control lever on the left side of the wheel to choose a setting from 1-7, 1 being the closest following distance and 7 being the longest following distance.
8. You can immediately warm up the steering wheel, along with the rest of the car’s seats, without any of them becoming uncomfortably hot if your Model S has the optional sub-zero weather package.
7. The sunroof in the Model S can be adjusted by merely tapping and dragging on the sunroof slider bar or simply touching on the image of the sunroof on the touchscreen and the sunroof will shift to the designated position.
6. The sunroof is ingenious. By simply pressing “open,” it’ll only open 75% of the way so that wind noise is minimized. The sunroof opens completely by tapping “open” twice, but it opens slightly by pressing “vent”.
5. A rain sensor is placed on the inside of the windshield at the base of the rear view mirror of the Model S. When wipers are on “auto,” the frequency at which they wipe is governed by how much the sensor detects; if it’s programmed to auto but no water is detected, the wipers won’t wipe.
4. Four levels of wiper speed can be selected: auto with low sensitivity, auto with high sensitivity, continuous slow and continuous fast. The windshield can also be wiped only once by merely pressing a button.
3. In case of snow or ice, the “service mode” of the car can be turned on through the touchscreen. This positions the wipers close to the defrost vent, letting you to liquefy them by directing air from the climate control system towards the windshield.
2. The suspension of the Model S can be changed, or how high it is off the road, if your local roads have too many speed bumps. Furthermore, your car will summon up which settings were used based on your car’s location to fine-tune the suspension automatically in the future.
1. The Model S also has a “valet mode” that assists you in turning certain functions off just in case you need to leave your car with an attendant. Once you generate a 4-digit PIN (which you later use to cancel this mode), this function limits the car’s speed, locks the front trunk and glove box, takes away personal data from the touchscreen, and disables cruise control, voice commands, and more.
