Tesla has started selling the updated Model S. Aside from the new color, the company is touting more features for less money, which includes High-Visibility Glass Roof, High-Performance Brakes, and a Round Steering Wheel, but there is likely more yet.
On Thursday, Tesla launched a new color for Model S and Model X. However, along with the exclusive Ultra Red color, Model S also received some amazing updates, according to an email with information sent to customers of the company. Tesla is offering more for less, with Model S now starting at $89,900. Tesla promises that the new Model S will have more performance, versatility, and style. Plus, it includes exclusive features that will take the driving experience to the next level. Tesla wrote:
