The 2018 Tesla Model S has an almost bare dashboard with only one centrally mounted LCD screen.Â Model 3 2018 is a medium-sized, full electric four-door luxury limousine manufactured and marketed by Tesla Motors. The modern features make distinguishes the Model S from every other electric motor that is on the market is that it competes with its gas-powered rivals with performance, technology, and value, while it requires little compromise in terms of driving distance. In addition to a spacious and imaginative interior, the 2018Â Model S can load speeds of zero to 60 mph in as little as 2.5 seconds and up to 335 miles on a single battery. And it achieves the achievements while it costs no more than a comparable fossil fuel-powered premium sedan.
Unlike most of the somewhat dowdily-styled EVs on the road today, Model S has a sleek yet conventional look with a coupe-like roofline similar to that of the Jaguar XF. Short front and rear hangers do not only give the Model S a clean, sporty appearance, but also allow the maximum indoor volume. Large 19 or 21-inch wheels sit on all four corners, giving the Model S a truly planted look.
As an all-electric luxury sedan with wide variety and performance that opposes or exceeds competitive models, the Model S does not have any real opponents. Other EVs, such as the Ford Focus Electric and Nissan Leaf, are in another league because of their lower price, smaller size, more modest range and lack of luxury content. Comparable gas models include the BMW 5 Series and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

In addition, there is a small trunk, the electric power system takes less space than a conventional engine, serving an extra 5.3 cubic centimeters for small items. If human transport is a priority, Model S buyers offer the option of a pair of rear suspension seats to increase seven seats.
