2022 Tesla Model S Review

Tesla Model S is arguably one of the most superior electric cars. The electric car, which was launched in 2012, has steadily grown popular across the US over the years. It competes with Porsche Taycan, Mercedes Benz EQS, and Lucid Motors Air in the international market.

Detailed Review

The Tesla Model S 2022 has received a styling refresh in the design and interior, including a distinctive yoke-style steering wheel and a monstrous 1020-horsepower Plaid performance edition. 

Battery Life

The 2022 Tesla S boasts a battery pack beneath its floor that can last up to 412 miles. According to Lucid motors, the 2022 Tesla S Model’s Air luxury sedan is rated for up to 517 miles per charge.

2022 Tesla Model S Interior

The 2022 Tesla Model S has an attractive interior starting with a big 17-inch LCD screen which is an eye-catcher while entering the front cab area. Wireless charging pads for the driver and passenger are visible directly beneath the display, and cup holders and storage are concealed below the console door. With a touchscreen rear display, backseat passengers can now access both functionality and entertainment. Controls for the rear fans are also accessible via the touchscreen.

Boot Space

The Tesla Model S is a hatchback, which means it has plenty of rear cargo space and a convenient front trunk. It offers far greater cargo room than many competitors, and the split-back seats can fold flat, further expanding the available storage capacity. 

The front storage is significantly improved over previous Model S generations. 

Safety Features

Anti-lock braking systems

ABS brakes detect when a tire stops rotating during hard braking and automatically regulate the brake pressure to allow the tire to rotate. This improves the vehicle’s turning capabilities while braking.

Stability

When the vehicle’s handling limits are exceeded, stability control automatically decreases engine power and applies select brakes to assist the driver in regaining control of the car.

Front Airbags 

Front-impact airbags for the driver and passenger have been created to protect the driver’s and passenger’s heads in the event of a frontal collision. The 2022 Tesla Model S also boasts side impact airbags, overhead airbags, and knee airbags. 

Pretensioners

Seatbelt pretensioners automatically tighten seatbelts to ensure that the occupant is seated correctly in the event of a collision.

Security system

The car is fitted with an anti-entry system that anticipates and detects unwanted vehicle intrusion. The vehicle is equipped with an ignition disable device that prevents the engine from starting if the car is not started with the correct original factory key.

Ground Clearance

The 2022 Tesla Model S features a 4.6-inch ground clearance.

Cost of Ownership

The 2022 Tesla Model S costs between $95,000 and $130,000 in the US market. 

Conclusion

The Tesla Model S Plaid is the automotive equivalent of Usain Bolt. If you line it up at a drag strip, it will outsprint almost anything on the road today. The Model S hatchback’s practicality and availability to Tesla’s Supercharger network are also big pluses.
