Tesla Model S

Gamechanger, disruptor, revolutionary… whatever it’s labelled, the Model S’ influence has profoundly reshaped luxury and performance since launching locally in 2014.

Continuously improved with ever-evolving tech including the AutoPilot semi-autonomous driving system (where allowed), the head-turning five-door liftback also unshackled the EV from its urban tether.
