The car is rated for dragging more than 2 tons on a braked trailer.
Tesla Model X vs. Model S
Tesla Model S is the first custom-made creation by Elon Musk. It has an aluminum body with steel used to strengthen the key areas.
It is claimed that the resultant stiffness allows the vehicle to provide good dynamics regardless of the size and weight, even on 21” wheels.
This is the first manufacturer to launch a fast, viable, practical, and appealingly priced electric luxury vehicle.
Within a decade, Tesla has changed from CEO Elon Musk’s brainchild to a serious player in the niche of making and selling ‘zero-emission cars’.
This Roadster is the first projection in a plug-in trident of a plan that contains a small saloon and a crossover SUV in the coming years.
Theoretically, Tesla Model S is put to seize sizable market shares out of giant brands like Audi, Jaguar, BMW, and Benz.
This model is quite different from anything we have seen before.
It has the size, pace, space, and range to compete with a typically powered contender.
It has the panache, finish, quality and character as well.
Model S features steel and aluminum monocoque, which has front reinforcement and ample crumple zones with good crash strength.
The battery is under the cabin floor and its subframe provides torsional rigidity.
You can also swap out the whole battery pack with a special automated jig.
Choose from 1 of 4 battery options, which includes 60kWh and 75kWh pack – both available in rear-wheel and all-wheel-drive models.
Tesla Model S may look conventional but it is an intensely stylish car from the outside.
