Vehicle Overview

The Tesla Model S is the company's second all-electric car. It's a sedan that seats up to seven, with optional jump seats for children. The car is offered with three battery options, each offering more range and power.

New for 2013
All Model S trim levels gain new standard features like 12-way adjustable and heated front seats. An extended warranty that adds additional coverage for four years or 50,000 miles is also available.

Exterior
On the outside, the Model S resembles a mix of a Jaguar and Aston Martin, with pronounced exterior curves. An all-glass panoramic sunroof is available and the sedan's door handles retract into the door itself to reduce aerodynamic drag. Nineteen-inch wheels are standard, while 21-inch wheels are available.

Interior
Inside, the Model S features power-adjustable heated front seats and a 17-inch touch-screen that controls the audio and navigation systems as well as climate and other controls. Simulated leather seating is standard with leather surfaces available.

Under the Hood
Battery options for the Model S are 60-kilowatt-hour or 85 kwh packs. The larger one, Tesla says, provides a range as far as 300 miles. The car is quick, with a zero-to-60-mph time of 5.9 seconds for the base version and 4.2 seconds for a performance-oriented edition.

On a high-amperage 240-volt power outlet the car can replenish range at a rate of 62 miles per hour while a 50 percent charge can be had in 30 minutes when the car is configured to use one of Tesla's Superchargers. An adaptive air suspension is available.

Safety
Standard safety features include antilock brakes, an electronic stability system, side-impact airbags for the front seats, side curtain airbags and front knee airbags.
