New options for Europe

In advance of the first European Model S deliveries, we are excited to announce the release of some new vehicle option packages designed to optimize multiple aspects of the ownership experience and vehicle performance. Below are details of each newly available option, any of which can be easily added a-la-carte to your existing booking, if not already included:

Cold Weather Package: Stay warmer as the weather gets colder with new heated second-row seats, heater windshield wiper nozzles & cowl, improved defrost grill, and an upgraded battery coolant heater to improve vehicle performance and range in cold climates.

Park Assist: New front and rear-mounted bumper sensors measure the distance between Model S and other objects, making navigating tight spaces much easier and more comfortable. Audible and visual feedback will be communicated clearly on the instrument panel.

Lighting Package (included standard on Signature Series): In order to improve both utility and ambience in your car, this package is designed to improve your visibility in and around the vehicle, and includes additional lighting in the footwells, door jams, door panels, and storage areas.

Security Package: In addition to the standard security features, overhead intrusion sensors and battery-backed alarm sirens are now available.
Performance Plus: This re-tuned suspension adds a very comfortable, yet firm ride that helps to transform Model S into a true driver’s car. Delay between driver input and steering response is reduced through optimized dampers and bushings, helping you to unleash the maximum potential of Model S Performance.

At this point in time, the new options are not yet available for selection in the online configurator, so our Product Specialists are standing by to answer all your questions about product details and pricing and/or update your configuration and paperwork if you’d like to upgrade your vehicle with the new selections. In order to add any new options to your configuration without delaying your vehicle’s production timing, all updates must be submitted no later than Monday, April 15, so please reach out to our Product Specialist team as soon as possible to specify your preferences.

I like it:

Only for Europe?

Can American customers also have/choose these options on their Tesla Model S?

How have this info been distributed? I have finalized my EU P82, but not recieved any email or info about this.

Its not on the blog or Tesla part of this forum either?

It came in an e-mail. I also finalized mine some time ago.

It all seems a bit chaotic. No prices given. Also I wander if sport plus suspension is a modification of the air suspension.

Contact for enquiries is: eureservations@teslamotors.com

Just received the mail as well. Very cool, great news!

I'd very much like the performance plus, but not now.;-)

Hopefully this can be bought later, when I have the cash to upgrade Model S Perf in a few years.;-)

@Runar, yes it can be retrofit...

@jeroens Excellent!! :-) Then my wife might not have to kill me after all.. I would have had a hard time, not to orders this now if that was the only option. (dont tell Tesla)

Never seen a company so responsive to its customers. In awe.

I was told on phone that perf plus could not be retro fitted. Not sure what to belive now.

What about seat wear at front and rear seats. Any improvements to protect the seats?

Cold Weather Package: new heated second-row seats, heater windshield wiper nozzles & cowl, improved defrost grill, and an upgraded battery coolant.

Sounds good! I'll need heated windshield and defrost grill about 2 months a year.

"Park Assist: front and rear-mounted bumper sensors"

YES!!!! If you could use these while driving so you can't hit a suddenly braking car...

"Lighting Package: includes additional lighting in the footwells, door jams, door panels, and storage areas."

Don't know If I need this. Probably nice.

"Security Package: overhead intrusion sensors."

Not sure how this works. Alarm signal when I let the windows open?

I dont think its heated windshield, but heated wiper nozles. Says so at least in the Norwegian email

Any idea in how far the Lighting Package is different from the additional lighting which comes as part of the Tech Package?

@Runar, 2 emails from Tesla EU which says it can be retrofitted. also in several posts on here and teslamotorclub…


Hi Jeroen,
I have an update on the performance plus package, we do now have the pricing available, which will be 6.600€ incl. tax in the Netherlands.

Furthermore the option is available as a retrofit to customers that have already configured as well

@loco - The performance Plus option was added (at least in the US) as an option around March 31, 2013. It's a $6500 option. It appears in the Model S options and pricing section.

@stotzman - the park assist as I understand it does not brake for you. It is just a warning when you get close to a wall or object (usually within 3 feet) to assist with parking. Still a very desirable feature.

The lighting package sounds like they may have moved these features from the standard (at least in the US/Canada) to be an extra option. Since Euro pricing is entirely different, there is nothing wrong with this - perhaps makes the base price lower. I love the lighting, so it's worth considering if reasonably priced.

The price list is as follows excluding VAT:

Performance Plus 5.475
Cold Weather Package 1275
Security Package 375
Lightning Package 375
Parking sensors 450
Delivery preparation and Coordination Fee 370

Anyone called Tesla in the US to see what pricing/timing is for these options on US cars? I am about to take delivery in the US and sure would like the parking sensors without having to get retrofitted.

I called the US reservation/build folks - no one knows about the features. I didn't mention i heard it here (or that emails were sent to EU) but the folks on the forum said that if you heard it on the forum it's probably a rumor :)

FINALLY!!

Parking sensors!

Was my No.1 gripe!

Well done, Tesla

Cool but where is the electrical folding side mirrors?

Its a pity that there is no news from the electronically foldable mirror-front. Or is there?

This is very good news indeed! The parking sensors will be working overtime here in Danish parking spaces :-)

jeroens;
retro-modification of a confirmed order is very different from retrofit to a delivered car. One is software, the other is hardware!

loco;
That would be lighting package. The Model S neither uses nor emits lightning. >;p

Details...as its rumored to move nearly as fast as lightning though...

@Brian H
Just a copy-paste of Tesla rep. He also didn't state what currency it is, but I'm guessing EUR.

This is great. Well more then great it is fantastically amazing.
Sensors, cold weather heck I might go for it all. The last E-class I had I got something they called ambient light package and it made it so nice. So I guess the light package is a must as well. Great for the boys to get some nice toys. And good for Tesla as well, now they can improve their bottom line as well.

So Tesla, how about ventilated seats and an AWD MS while your at it?

@loco: Delivery preparation and Coordination Fee 370

Do you know what is that for ?
I ask as it wasn't mentioned in the e-mail I received.

Norwegian prices for new options are:

- Cold Weather Package NOK 8,500
- Security Package NOK 2,300
- Lighting Package NOK 2,300
- Parking Sensors NOK 2,850
