Since 2016, Tesla’s Model S design has not changed much, but it seems to be gaining momentum (may be expired). According to Electrek, kWh has spotted a design update that looks like a Model S roaming around Palo Alto.
At first glance, this is a more aggressive style of car, with a wider body, more pronounced fenders and wider hips. This car, run by the manufacturer, also appears to have wheels, lights and an updated rear diffuser.
Not sure if there are internal changes. Tesla hopes to deliver a more powerful and longer-range Model S Plaid in the second half of 2021, but the vehicle you see here is not necessarily the prototype of the car. It may be an adjustment that can be independent of the longer range.
The big underground has been revised. Tesla (Tesla) has a history of decoupling design and technological change (for example, self-driving car hardware only arrived about half a year after the April 2016 update).
The absence of disguise and other attempts to cover up the design shows that if this indicates a new design, you may not have to wait a long time.
Even if there are not many functional changes, this may be an important change. If Tesla wants to reach the peak of 500,000 vehicles in 2020, it will face many challenges, including revitalizing the sales of high-end electric vehicles such as Model S.
Although the sales of the S are not high, this is the company’s current “halo” car (at least until the new Roadster arrives) and corresponds to the high-end products offered by German automakers such as BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Any increase in Model S sales can improve Tesla’s overall business.
