Prepare to be moved...quickly
Tesla’s unique all-electric powertrain delivers supercar acceleration with limousine smoothness, moving you from 0 to 60mph in just 2.28 seconds with Ludicrous Plus mode activated. Dedicated front and rear motors combine with digital controls to ensure unparalleled traction in all conditions. It’s smooth, stable, fast and efficient – capable of transporting you safely at speeds of up to 155 mph.
Technology that goes the extra mile
If economy thrills you more than speed, you could drive up to 381 miles on a single charge. Tesla’s innovative motor and battery technology in the Model S set a new standard for electric vehicles, launching with the greatest range of any EV vehicle ever produced. And if you’re enjoying the ride so much you want to go further, your Model S will help you find the nearest Tesla supercharger where you can top-up with 170 miles range in as little as 30 minutes.
Take comfort from convenience
With the focus on driver and passenger experience, the Model S interior combines sophisticated luxury with ergonomic comfort. The refined fit and finish of the interior includes all the conveniences and personal adaptations you could need - from heated, 12-way adjustable power seats to touchscreen driver personalisation and climate control. And when it comes to features such as driving aids and parking assistance it’s hard to make a distinction between luxury, convenience and safety.
Engineering you don’t need to shout about
Meticulous noise engineering throughout the Model S provides astonishing low cabin noise levels. Building on the quietness of the powertrain, Tesla has created an interior space with the sound dynamics of a recording studio. Of course, if you want to make some noise the fully-featured audio system is just a touch or voice command away. So, whether you choose the dulcet tones of a loved one via a hands-free phone call; reassuring updates from the onboard navigation; or your favourite tunes through DAB radio, USB, Bluetooth or internet streaming, you’ll experience them all with premium sound system quality.
Street smart – stay connected
Being on the road doesn’t have to leave you separated from useful technology. The Model S is designed to harness it not just for an advanced drive but also to keep you safe and connected. With a 17 inch touchscreen at the heart of the Model S controls, most of the car’s functions can be reached with a simple tap or swipe - from vehicle data, climate control and navigation to HD reversing camera, entertainment and phone calls. Internet connectivity ensures real-time traffic updates with smart re-routing while calendar synchronisation helps you stay on top of your schedule.
Safe as houses?
Quite possibly more so. Few houses could claim to boast the wealth of active safety technologies found in the Model S. Advanced protection features include collision avoidance, automatic emergency braking and stability and traction control. There’s even built-in health protection with a Medical grade HEPA air filtration system, which removes at least 99.97% of particulate exhaust pollution and effectively all allergens, bacteria and other contaminants from cabin air.
Ride the future
Self-driving cars are the future and Tesla is a pioneer in the field. Here at Hire an EV all of our fleet have this Full Self Driving capability hardware built in and will be accessible once legislation allows. The Model S features a unique self-driving system which offers a safety level greater than that of a human driver. Multiple cameras, radars and ultrasonics combine with super fast processors to see in every direction simultaneously. The Model S can match speed to traffic conditions, keep within a lane, automatically change lanes without requiring driver input, transition from one motorway to another, exit the motorway when your destination is near, and self-park when near a parking space.
