By choosing the Tesla Model S sedan or the Tesla Model X SUV, which recently went through the restyling box, your rear passengers will also have the right to a screen to play video games with wireless controllers. From the center console, you can even charge your smartphone inductively or use one of the available USB-C sockets.
Other comfort features on the Teslas include heated front and rear seats, while the front ones are electrically adjustable. The multifunction steering wheel, as well as the side mirrors, are heated. Speaking of the steering wheel, on the Tesla Model S and Model X, the brand introduces the U-shaped Yoke steering wheel, which is supposed to improve the driving experience. You also benefit from the large panoramic glass roof with protection against ultraviolet and infrared rays. Finally, on the new Tesla Model S and Model X, even the windshield is heated
Obviously, Tesla does not overlook safety equipment since, depending on the model, the brand places 6 to 8 airbags to protect the driver and passengers in the event of a collision. There are then front and side airbags, as well as curtain airbags.
In addition, Tesla vehicles benefit from:
