Tesla Model S and X “Refresh”…

Yesterday came word -and images!- of the new “refresh” of Tesla’s Model S and X vehicles.

For those unaware, the Model S is their high end sedan and the Model X is their high end SUV. The new versions of these vehicles will look like this…

Understanding The Recent Changes Made To Tesla's Model S & X

To those who are into these cars, the exterior differences in the new Model S and X versions versus the old are subtle yet, IMHO, make it look even slicker.

The bigger, more obvious differences lie in each vehicle model’s interior.

Here’s the old interior of the S and X…

And here, ladies and gentlemen, is the new interior…

Tesla teases Model S Plaid with refreshed interior: New touchscreen,  Roadster steering wheel, and more


I have to say, I’m very impressed with the new “space age” look, which IMHO instantly makes the not bad looking previous interior suddenly look very old and clunky. I would quickly add, however, that I wonder about that steering wheel. Here’s a closer look…

Sorry for the red circles in this image -these circles are NOT on the actual steering wheel!- but this image, taken from Teslarati, is the closest I could find of the new steering wheel. The red circles were put on the image to show off the additional controls which are on the steering wheel, including turn signals and windshield wiper controls.

As I said above, I wonder about the steering wheel, mainly how well it can be used versus a more typical circular one. Then again, I suspect Tesla has tested this new steering wheel quite a bit before going with it, so I’m hopeful that it works.

The other very intriguing thing about the new refreshed models is hinted at in the photograph which shows the entire front dash. If you look closely at the monitor, you’ll see that there’s a picture of The Witcher III: The Last Hunt video game on that monitor.

The new refresh models will have the ability, it would appear, to play any PC games!

Oh, and for those in the back seat who want to play games and don’t want to stretch their bodies forward to look at the monitor in the front…

This is why Tesla, IMHO has such a bright future versus other car making companies.

Yes, having a full on PC gaming system within a car may seem silly, but damn if that isn’t an interesting add on. Already you can go on the web or play a pretty good group of games (including some arcade classics like Asteroids and Centipede!) while sitting around your car and otherwise doing nothing, but to now have the ability to play the latest high end video games?


Anyway, if you have a bunch of cash just lying around doing nothing and are thinking about getting a new car, you may want to consider the new Teslas!
