Tesla Inc. is a California-based EV and clean energy company that made the headlines in 2012 when it released the Model S. A five-door liftback sedan, the Model S represented the future with its blend of styling, performance, and practicality, and further boosted by the effervescent personality of Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk. The Model S has the distinction of being the first electric car in the world to top monthly sales rankings in any country, topping the charts in Norway for September and November 2013, and Denmark in December 2015. The Model S is known for performance, with a Ludicrous Mode, and the 2021 Plaid variant can sprint from zero to sixty in just over two seconds, on to a top speed of 200mph. Tesla’s current model range consists of the S, 3, X and Y which is thought to be a play on ‘sexy’. This vehicle is a 2021 Tesla Model S Performance with just 684 miles on the clock, and it comes from Florida.
The styling of the Model S still looks fresh, as Tesla has incorporated little upgrades and styling touches over the years, and that, helped with the sheer ‘wow’ factor of the car help keep it standing out from the crowd. This 2021 Tesla Model S Performance is dressed in a Midnight Silver Metallic paint coat, and rolls on 21” Sonic Carbon Twin Turbine wheels shod with Michelin tires. The interior features a black with carbon fiber theme, dominated by the signature portrait-oriented 17” touchscreen in the center console. This touchscreen controls all aspects of the car, including climate control, infotainment, car settings and even the little ‘easter eggs’ that come baked into Tesla models. This car is also equipped with Premium Connectivity and Full Self Driving Capability that is offered on the model, which effectively allows the car to drive itself under the supervision of the driver.
Tesla vehicles do not feature any fossil fuel powerplants in their DNA, and the Model S embodies this philosophy. This 2021 Tesla Model S Performance features dual motors driving all four wheels. The front wheels get a 275hp 310 lb ft motor, and the rear ones are spun by a 503hp 531 lb ft unit. This gives a combined system total of 778hp and 841 lb ft, enough to rocket the car from zero to sixty in a claimed 2.5 seconds and on to an electronically limited top speed of 155mph. Air suspension all round ensures a smooth and comfortable ride, and the 100kWh battery pack is rated to give over 350 miles of range under average driving.
