Model S is engineered from the ground up as an electric car.
Through meticulous and innovative engineering, Tesla created a drive experience
to surpass any that have come before it. By designing a
slim-line battery pack positioned below the floor and combining the
motor and power electronics into a compact module between
the rear wheels, the Tesla engineering team
developed a car that truly integrates
Tesla’s proven powertrain.
The innovative integration
is the key to exploiting
the advantages of an
electric car and
The Tesla-designed advanced suspension system works in harmony with the rigid, lightweight body structure.
Tesla has poured its learning from the Roadster’s ground-breaking electric powertrain technology into Model S.
Tesla's energy dense batteries achieve unprecedented driving ranges. But they're more than a source of power.
Underneath a car's lines and curves, its structure endows a vehicle with character and strength.
The streamlined Model S is a product of unprecedented teamwork between designers and aerodynamicists.
