At the end of January 2021, Tesla lifted the veil on a new version of the Model S. This is the first major overhaul of the Model S range since its launch in 2012. In this file, we list all the information available on the new electric sedan from the automobile manufacturer. Follow the guide.

The new Tesla Model S is available in two distinct models. Tesla has indeed made the decision to cancel the Model Plaid S Plaid +. Elon Musk believes this edition was unnecessary. The range offers a range of 628 to 652 kilometers. Here are the performances offered by each variant:

Tesla Model S 2021 Throw

  • Range of 628 kilometers
  • 0 to 100 km / h in 2.1 seconds
  • Maximum speed of 322 km / h
  • 1020 horsepower
  • Retractable spoiler for high speed trips

Tesla Model S 2021 Long Range

  • Autonomy of 652 kilometers
  • 0 to 100 km / h in 3.2 seconds
  • Maximum speed of 250 km / h

Note that the Model S Plaid has already broken several speed records. At the start of June 2021, she covered 400 m in 9.2 seconds. Then, a few days later, it goes from 0 to 100 km / h in just 1.98 seconds. After a well-deserved summer vacation, it became the fastest production electric car on the Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit, completing a full lap in 7 minutes and 30.909 seconds.

As expected, Tesla has slightly reworked the exterior design of the electric sedan. Among the major novelties of this 2021 edition, we find a large tinted glass roof, new two-tone 19-inch rims, a larger front and rear bumper. But most of the changes are inside the cockpit.

The 17-inch Model S screen

Tesla now includes a new 17-inch IPS LCD screen with a definition of 2200 x 1300 pixels on the dashboard. This time, the firm opts for a screen in landscape format (more suitable for viewing content) rather than portrait, and surrounded by thin borders. Also note the presence ofa second 8-inch screen in landscape format intended for passengers. It is located between the two front seats. These two screens will allow you to play with Tesla Arcade.

Moreover, the manufacturer promises graphics power equivalent to that of a PS5 thanks to a partnership with AMD: 10 teraflops! Tesla is relying on a Ryzen processor accompanied by an RDNA 2 GPU to offer high-end graphics power. You will be able to play AAA titles like The Witcher 3 with a wireless controller, Tesla slide. A promise that was verified during the official presentation of the car, the opportunity to make an impressive demonstration of Cyberpunk 2077 in 60 FPS on the 17-inch screen of the car.

Note the presence of a new steering wheel in the shape of a “U”, similar to that seen on the Roadster, the electric car from Tesla. The firm assures that the shape of this steering wheel was directly inspired by aeronautics. According to a leak, Tesla will give the choice between a classic steering wheel or this U-shaped steering wheel.

What release date?

The Tesla Model S will be available on the market from September 2021 in France.

What price ?

The new Tesla Model S is available in two models at prices ranging from 89,990 euros to 130,990 euros. Here is the complete price list according to the three variations:

  • Tesla Model S 2021 Long Range: from 89,990 euros
  • Tesla Model S 2021 Throw : from 119,990 euros

Note that Tesla recently increased the price of the Model S Plaid in the United States. The manufacturer is now asking $ 129,990, an increase of $ 10,000. For now, this increase only concerns the American market. Nevertheless, it is not impossible that the increase will end up being passed on to France. Obviously, the price of the model rises according to the added options (interior in walnut, improved Autpilot, etc.). We will update this file regularly as Tesla releases new information on the 2021 Model S.
