The Model S was arguably the first all-electric car that you could easily use in place of a combustion-engined equivalent when it launched eight years ago. Today, it’s still one of the best EVs around.
It’s much larger than the Model 3 and is hugely practical, with up to 804 litres of boot space and optional rear-facing child seats, turning it into a seven-seater. The battery and motor technology is what really makes the Model S stand out. With an enormous 100kWh cell, the Model S Long Range is capable of 379 miles on a charge, and is backed up by Tesla’s 150kW Supercharger network.
