Having a front grille on an electric vehicle is pointless, which is why Tesla Motors decided to drop it from the facelifted Model S, which was introduced last week.
The action has sparked some controversy, as some consider that the electric sedan has lost its flare on the way, but after seeing it in real life, its small “moustache” seems to fit in the redesigned front end that also includes reprofiled bumper and new adaptive full LED headlights, an improvement over the previous model.
Changes made to the profile are on a more subtle level and they will probably go by unseen if one is not a Tesla fan. The same can be said on the interior too, which has gained two new trim accents and the “medical-grade” HEPA air-filtration system from the Model X SUV, which is wrapped in a premium package with leather seats, power liftgate and 3-position LED turning and fog lights, for a $3,000 premium.
Charging the batteries takes less than before, as Tesla has upgraded the internal charger from 40 amps to 48 amps, but changes made to the Model S family could continue, as a P100D is reportedly on its way, although the automaker has yet to announce anything on the new possible range-topper.
