Without the 2022 Tesla Model S, we would not have the growing number of electric vehicles there are today. The vehicle still remains one of the most compelling and desirable options in the growing market segment. It can reach up to 412 miles of driving range, depending on the model, and can easily be used for long drives. The Model S is also very practical and has a large rear cargo area with a secondary front trunk for extra space.
In the previous year, the Model S got a styling refresh for the exterior and interior that brought about the addition of a unique yoke-style steering wheel and a beastly 1020-horsepower Plaid performance model. For the 2022 model, few changes are expected but Tesla announced a large price increase for the base Long Range trim.
2022 Tesla Model S Engine, Transmission and Performance
The Tesla Model S offers full-time all-wheel drive no matter which version you choose. It is an electric motor that is dedicated to each of the fronts and rear axles. The acceleration of the various trims starts from outstanding to ferocious. The previous 2020 Model S Long Range delivered 2.4 seconds from 0 mph to 60 mph so the 2022 model is expected to be faster.
The Plaid model boasts of a third electric motor, which produces a combined output of 1020 horsepower. Tesla has not released that beast into the wild yet but claims it will be capable of a zero-to-60-mph time of just 2.0 seconds. That would make it the quickest car to 60 mph ever but it will have to be tested on the track to see if its performance matches the hype.
There are two different settings on the standard Model S that allows drivers to choose heavy or light steering effort, but neither of them enables more feedback from the road. The Model S has proven itself an agile sports sedan with well-controlled body motions and direct steering. The handling is crisp, and it is confident and almost quiet while driving.
2022 Tesla Model S Battery Charging Life and Range
The bonnet of the Tesla has a battery pack that yields a low centre of gravity and the weight are evenly distributed from the front to rear. The driving range and acceleration performance depends on the model and varies from each with the Long Range version’s battery providing up to a 412-mile range while the Plaid model offers up to 390.
2022 Tesla Model S Fuel Economy
Electronic vehicles such as Chevy Bolt and Polestar 2 deliver a good driving range. The Tesla Model S remains an impressive alternative to gasoline-powered vehicles when it comes to long distance use. The base along the Range model receives the highest fuel economy rating at 121 city run and 112 highway run. The 2020 Tesla Model S had 222 highway run and 326 city run.
2022 Tesla Model S Interior and Cargo
The 2022 Tesla Model S comes at an expensive price that would make buyers wonder why but seeing the interior gives a reason to that because it is mostly made of luxury. The cabin has an atmosphere that is nice enough but it is not as plush as Mercedes-Benz. The Model S has a sloped roofline that cleverly hides a rear liftgate that opens up to reveal a huge 26-cubic-foot trunk.
2022 Tesla Model S Exterior Features
The Tesla Model S has a simple and clear design statement across its lineup of cars. The aerodynamic look has been tested multiple times to provide the lowest drag coefficient ever. This is possible because of the rigid body structure and a low centre of gravity. The weight is distributed properly on the chassis with the widest wheelbase possible.
The Model S is the sleekest production of electric cars ever made. The 2020 model desk is quite different from the actual one that has been around for years now. The mid-cycle refresh has some good upgrades. The design lines somehow seem sharper and the slanting roof design is now better than ever.
The front look has updated fresh-looking bumpers and thinner LED headlamps. The front grille is now very thin. For the 2022 model, Tesla ditched the massive bumper air vents with a smaller vent and sleek fog lamps. The rear look is a new tail lamp as well. The 19-inch wheels make the Tesla Model S the best-looking Sedan.
