When it comes to true luxurious electric sedans, there is hardly a better choice than the 2018 Tesla Model S. This model is already a well-known, full-size, 5-door sedan that features exclusively electric motors, instead of internal combustion ones. Ever since its initial unveiling in 2012, the Tesla Model S has been regarded as one of the most efficient and technologically advanced cars on the market. The 2018 edition is even better, thanks to an array of new, cutting-edge features, tremendous acceleration and even more attractive exterior design.
2018 Tesla Model S – Athletic and Clean Look
When looking at the 2018 Tesla Model S, one can easily understand why it is considered as one of the sleekest, most attractive sedans on the market. The previous models were already among the most beautiful cars on the market. Thankfully, the upcoming model will represent an evolution, not a revolution. The American engineers have decided to boost its looks even further, by making some tweaks and adding certain stylistic touches. As opposed to the 2017 model, the newest one will feature a much more athletic and clean look. Up front, we will see the same corner vents and a redesigned hood.
The headlights are now much sleeker and feature LED strips. However, the biggest change will be the nose, which will be much smoother and seamlessly incorporated into the fascia. On the sides and in the rear, the 2018 Tesla Model S will be pretty much similar to the previous models.
Even though the 2018 Tesla Model S is classified as a sedan, it has more in common with hatchbacks than standard sedans. That means the customers can expect plenty of interior room. The Model S will feature more than enough legroom and headroom, as well as lots of cargo space. In addition, it will also provide plenty of comforts, thanks to an abundance of high-quality materials and fully adjustable seats. Tech wise, the Tesla Model S will surely impress. The most obvious tech feature will be a massive 17-inch touchscreen display, which will serve as a true command center. In addition, we will also see a high-definition rearview camera, a premium 7-speaker sound system, a full autopilot function, adaptive cruise control, Bluetooth and so on.
