The Tesla Model S, introduced in 2012, is the electric vehicle that changed the world’s perception of EVs. The large, luxury all-electric sedan combines long-range, sharp design, and near-instantaneous acceleration.
The two versions of the Model S offered in mid-2020 are the “Long-Range Plus,” providing 391 miles of all-electric range, and the crazy-fast “Performance” variant that clocks zero-to-60 mph in 2.3 seconds. The ability to thrill with acceleration like that brings down total range to 348 miles, which is still ample.
Either version of the Tesla Model S combines Maserati-like looks, BMW handling, and Mercedes-Benz comfort. The clincher is advanced Autopilot features and access to Tesla’s network of Superchargers.
