93 City / 99 Highway
Automotive Editor -

The Tesla Model S continues to be the most direct path to some of the best electric car and luxury car technology in a roomy, American-built sedan. Defying logic, the Tesla can easily tackle 200-or-so mile trips on a single charge and accommodate five people in comfort without sending harmful emissions into the air.

What's New for 2015

The 85 gets the $5,000 option of dual-motor all-wheel drive, a system that's standard on the new high-performance P85D trim level.

Choosing Your Tesla Model S

The Model S now has three trim levels:


The base Model S comes with 208 miles of range and starts around $70,000 before EV incentives. It's equipped with 19-inch wheels, a 17-inch touchscreen, seating for five, textile upholstery, a 240-volt charger, navigation, lane departure warning, LED running lights, front and rear parking sensors and streaming audio.

The Tech Package with Autopilot adds features such as adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, a power liftgate and power-folding outside mirrors. A fast-charging port, a panoramic moonroof, an air suspension, premium leather upholstery, premium audio, a cold-weather pack and rear-facing jump seats are optional.


The 85 extends range to 265 miles and adds $10,000 to the 65's price. In addition to a more robust motor, the 85 comes with the Supercharger-enabled fast-charging port as standard equipment. This is available on the 65, but essential for buyers who want to minimize the primary drawback of electric ownership: waiting for a recharge.

The 85 is otherwise equipped like the 65. All-wheel drive, the Tech Package with Autopilot, a cold-weather pack, the air suspension, 21-inch wheels, and premium leather seats and audio are available.


The P85D sits atop the Tesla range with a starting price near $105,000, an astonishing 691 horsepower and an estimated 253 miles of range. Standard features include all-wheel drive, red brake calipers and Alcantara headliner. But don't expect a fully loaded car, even at this price -- equipment like the Tech Package with Autopilot, air suspension and premium leather seats remain optional.

CarsDirect Tip

Options add up quickly, but the air suspension and Tech Package are worthwhile additions. The 85 is probably the best compromise between price and range, but for those looking for a serious sports sedan nothing other than the P85D.
