While Tesla is planning on further updating both the Model S as well as the Model X in the third quarter of 2019, we’re still a long ways away from seeing all-new versions of either model.
The Model S has been with us for six years now, although its design is even older than that. With German luxury brands set to launch their own fully-electric four-door saloons in the near future, Tesla really needs to shift the Model S into an all-new generation car.
What we have here is a design by Emre Husmen, who envisioned a much more aerodynamic exterior, boasting a sweeping roofline, aero surfaces, C-shaped front laser lights, C-shaped OLED rear lights and a lot of sharp edges.
As you can see, the design is pretty “busy”, although that’s not necessarily a bad thing. According to Husmen, this new Model S would also come with Level 5 autonomous driving technology and an “intelligent traction system” that would allow users to choose between FWD, RWD and AWD.
Some of the current Model S’ aesthetics clearly endured, such as its muscular fender design. We’re also fans of the large panoramic roof, which is something all automakers should consider as far as future models are concerned.
The interior meanwhile seems to feature a lot of leather and contrast stitching, an ultra-massive 19-inch curved dashboard-mounted display, plus another gauge cluster display – a setup that will reportedly change come late 2019 when the Model S and Model X will receive Model 3-inspired interiors.
This render also shows a customizable OLED screen on the steering wheel, which looks pretty neat.
