Tesla Model S Car Price: After the fatal accident involving Model S in May this year that involved Tesla’s Autopilot system, the company has come a long way and has parted ways with Mobileye. Though both Tesla and Mobileye cited different reasons for parting, the hard truth remains the same that the two are not together anymore.
Tesla’s Model S is a dream car, which is all electric and at 315 miles of range, it is an envied beauty. As if this was not enough, the ludicrous mode takes the P100D to 60 mph in flat 2.5 seconds, which is incredible. The lower models do however hit it in around 5.5 seconds.

The Dream Car
The CEO of the company Elon Musk calls Model S the amphibious car, which is all electric. The vehicle could be seen going past a flooded underpass in Kazakhstan with ease in a video. It was the spinning wheels of the vehicle that help it to propel through the flooded area.
What New for 2017?
Model S was introduced in 2012 and since then many revisions had happened but the looks were never touched until now. For the 2017 model, the faux front grille has been replaced by front fascia, which makes this car look much sleeker and streamlined. The headlights are also reshaped a bit. The driving ranges are also enhanced with 90D going from 270 to 294 miles, whereas P90D moving from 253 to 270 miles on a fully charged 90 kWh battery.
The other mechanical change that garners attention is the replacement of 40-amp charger by a 48-amp on-board charger, which ensures faster charging when it is connected to a Tesla Wall Connector or to a 240-volt NEMA 14-50 power outlet. With the previous charger, the vehicle was able to deliver 29 miles of range per hour of charge. The numbers are still not known for the new charger, but it is definitely going to be more.
The company has also added some new optional features to the Model S sedan list, one of which is HEPA air-filtration system available in Model X. If we compare the working of conventional air filters and this system in removing the allergens and the pollution, then this new system is definitely far more effective. This system is available in premium upgrade packages that are available at $3000. The choice of the interior finish is also there, the two new choices being Dark Ash Wood and Figured Ash Wood.
Tesla Model S Price:
If we compare the price of 2017 Model S, it is increased by $1500 throughout the range. The rear-wheel drive with 234 miles of range can be bought at $72,700, whereas the highest end in the range starts at $110,700. The price hike seems to be justified keeping in mind all the new additions in the 2017 version.
