The majority of the vehicles are consist of the Model S facelift form that was reported in April this year. The 2016 facelift brings new, more streamlined sash and a couple of new adaptive LED headlamps with 14 three-position LED dynamic turning lights. Additionally new to the facelift are a body-hued front jaw spoiler, side skirts and back valence.

On the inside, the upgraded Model S gets new trim options and new equipments, including a HEPA air filtration framework, Standard items incorporate a 17-inch capacitive touchscreen that serves as a show for the auto’s infotainment framework, route framework, a switch camera and eight airbags. Be that as it may, no datas were provided yet on how the S 70 and P90D will be fitted.

The S 70 is driven by a back pivot mounted electric engine with a yield 315 hp and 440 Nm, and execution figures are 0-100 km/h time of 5.8 seconds and a top speed of 230 km/h, which has no distinction with the S 85 (aside from a lower yield from the engine).

Concerning the P90D, the double motor system on the all-wheel drive offers 504 hp (with the expansion of a battery, 691 being the greatest yield of the engine alone) and 931 Nm . It has a scope of 410 km, 0 – 100 km/h time of 3.3 seconds and a top speed of 249 km/h.

The 10 examples are a piece of a unique amount of obligation excluded Teslas acquired through an uncommon program. Back in February, PM Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak declared that the legislature had given the green light for the import of 100 obligation free Tesla Model S as a major aspect of its endeavors of advancing electric vehicles.




Last year, it was reported that the Teslas will be available through a leasing program, with the cars just accessible to government-connected organizations, a point that was repeated amid the obligation free importation declaration back in February.

Elswhere, GreenTech says it will report improvements about its ChargEV program identified with Petronas at the current year’s International Greentech and Eco Products Exhibition (IGEM 2016). We’ll have more news on it when the show starts, on October 5.
