TrueDelta Reviews the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2012 Tesla Model S

2012 Tesla Model S Seat Room and Comfort: Cons
YearComment
The front seats in the Tesla Model S are reasonably comfortable, but don't look or feel especially luxurious and provide little lateral support in turns. At least in the Performance model the side bolsters should be larger and/or adjustable. The seats in the A7 similarly need more aggressive bolsters. The seats in the S7 have them. see full Tesla Model S review

TrueDelta Reviews the Powertrain of the 2012 Tesla Model S

2012 Tesla Model S Powertrain: Pros
YearComment
2013 Many people expect the Tesla Model S to be fuel efficient. What they often do not expect is that, with a 416 horsepower motor, the Performance variant can get to 60 mph in just over four seconds--nearly as quick as the quickest gasonline-powered competitors. Step down to the regular 85-kWh model (362 horsepower, 5.4 seconds to 60) or even the base pack (302 horsepower, 5.9 seconds to 60), and the Model S remains plenty quick. But even these impressive numbers don't do justice to the experience of driving the Model S. With no gears to downshift through or emissions to control, the powertrain can deliver its peak torque almost instantly, and with virtually no noise. Want to change lanes, and spot a hole? Just point and shoot. You can't get the same sensation with an internal combustion engine, no matter its peak power. see full Tesla Model S review
