Enjoy the comfort and luxury of executive rear seats. Passengers can also control music at the touch of their fingertips using the Spotify App on your in-vehicle iPad.
Model S’s chrome door handles are where the magic first begins. Upon vehicle approach, the otherwise retracted door handles will extend outwards, “presenting” themselves to you. When no longer in use, they will retract into the body of the car for maximum aerodynamics.
The interior has a stunning 17-inch, high definition touch screen – the largest of any production vehicle! It is a defining feature and usually draws gasps or remarks such as “Wow! Look at that large screen!” This Internet connected multi-touch screen provides rich content that allows your chauffeur to control most of the car’s functions with a touch or swipe, including climate control, media, maps, the rear view camera and much more.
Model S has the largest panoramic sunroof of any production car, providing an open and airy feeling within the cabin. With the roof opening wider than any other sedan, it delivers a convertible-like experience for passengers, whilst also blocking 98 per cent of visible light and 81 per cent of heat when closed.
Model S has a generous amount of cargo space. With no engine, transmission tunnel or fuel system, it’s no wonder the car seems to warp time and space. The “frunk” (front trunk) under the bonnet provides 150 litres of cargo capacity while the boot provides 744 litres of additional storage. At a combined total of 894 litres, the cargo space exceeds most large sedans and SUVs!
Safety has always been a top priority for Tesla and Model S is testament to that. It is one of only a handful of cars to have received the maximum 5-star safety rating from the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP), European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) and the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). In fact, it earned the highest safety score of any car that has been tested in the history of the NHTSA, performing so well that during testing of the roof, the machinery met its match, failing at more than 4G’s of pressure. That’s the equivalent of stacking four additional, fully loaded Model S on top of the car without breaking the roof!
NHTSA “awarded the Tesla Model S a 5-star safety rating, not just overall, but in every subcategory without exception.”
