BUYING A USED TESLA MODEL S?

We help you make sense of all past and present Model S versions.

Produced in Fremont, California the Tesla Model S is one of a few top scoring vehicles in both the NCAP and NHTSA Safety Ratings. Since its launch in 2012, it achieved top-selling status in various markets, including the top-selling plug-in vehicle in the USA for 2015. Tesla introduced the All Wheel Drive version in October 2014 and refreshed the model range in April 2016, which included a fast charger upgrade from 40amps to 48amps. Tesla is famous for “upgrading over the air,” allowing the owner to find a better version of his car when he wakes up in the morning. 2015 saw the introduction of the performance model with the geeky named “Ludicrous” mode made famous by the Mel Brooks classic Space Balls. All Model S versions since October 2014 included the Autopilot option, which lowers the probability of an accident by at least 50%. The introduction of a 100kWh battery model, the P100D is rumored for late 2016.

A standout feature of the Tesla Model S is the placement of the batteries which forms the floor between axles. The positioning provides distinct advantages such as allowing the battery to be replaced within 90 seconds, providing rigidity and preventing rollover of the vehicle thereby improving safety, low center of gravity providing lateral acceleration and quicker turn by lowering rotational inertia.

TESLA MODEL S EV SALES

Go to our detailed breakdown of Global EV Sales to see how the Tesla Model S electric car strategy fares to its competitors in the fast-growing EV market.

GLOBAL EV SALES

THE TESLA MODEL S IN THE NEWS

2017 Week 32 - Bolt outlasts Model S in Range test

Consumer Reports just published the results of its range test of the Chevrolet Bolt and came up with some surprising results.

While the Bolt is rated for 238 miles of driving by the EPA, the car exceeded that in the Consumer Reports test, squeezing out 12 more miles for a total of 250. That means the Bolt officially beats Tesla’s Model S, at least in this particular test. When CR tested the Model S 75D, it got 235 miles, compared to the EPA estimate of 259. This test may not be particularly telling but with the Tesla S costing double what the Chevy Bolt costs, some eyebrows could be raised at Tesla’s reliability when it comes to range.

2017 Week 9 - USA February EV sales, Tesla Model S nearly doubles

February Electric Vehicle sales data released for the USA this week reveals some interesting talking points. Overall, February sales gained a further 13.4% in January 2017 and over 55% on year on year basis. Contributors to the increase came from a nearly doubling in sales of the Tesla Model S and continued demand for the new Toyota Prius Plus. Unfortunately, the Prius in our books hardly counts as an electric vehicle due to its underwhelming continued reliance on its combustion engine. Disappointingly, sales for the Chevrolet Bolt declined over 18% from January, bringing total sales for the four months to 3,272 units, far short if one takes that at a claimed 30,000 units per annum the Bolt should have sold 10,000 units during the four months. In the carmaker standings, GM retained its lead with 2,776 units over Tesla’s 2,550 units with Ford taking third place with 1,704 units.

2016 Week 44 - P100D Easter Egg surprise unlocks full performance

Based on a tweet by Elon Musk on the 4th of November, it seems that Tesla is using gamification techniques in its product design. Mr. Musk tweeted – “Forgot to mention there will be a P100D Ludicrous Easter egg soon that uncorks the full performance.”

2016 Week 41 - Bumper year for EV's forecasted

1. With the 2016 calendar year quickly coming to and end, it seems from various analysis and reports released this week that it would be a bumper year for electric vehicles. CNBC reported that sales of electric vehicles in Europe would top 500,000 units on the road by the end of the year. Citing a report from non-governmental organization Transport & Environment (T&E) Europe, the second largest market for electric vehicles after China will see an addition of well over 200,000 EV’s sold for the year, a significant improvement on the 145,000 sold in 2015. The Guardian reported that the international electric vehicle stock would be more than 2.1M units by the end if 2016, with the Nissan LeafTesla Model S and BYD’s Tang and Qin being the most popular. Although the EV stock is still only around 1% of total vehicles on the road, it’s now growing 10X faster than traditional combustion vehicles despite low oil prices.

2. The Denver Post reported on Tesla‘s domination of the luxury vehicle segment in the USA. Tesla Motors released its latest sales figures, where the Q3 2016 was billed the best sales period ever reported for the company, with sales of the Model S jumping 59%. Although the luxury segment represents a small segment of total vehicle sales totaling 17M vehicles per year, Tesla now dominates over its rivals such as BMW and Mercedes by being responsible for nearly a third of all sales reported. The closest competitors were the new BMW 7 Series and the Mercedes S-Class.
