Are the 2013 and 2014 green the same color.? Not sure if they still made it in 2015 or 2016. Looking for a used one and photos of various cars are so different. Not sure if it's the photos or the year. Thanks.

Tesla only made one green for Model S, so it's probably the pictures/lighting; unless you're looking at some custom cars. It's very dark, and people often mistake it for black unless it's in the sunshine.

One shade of green, and it was discontinued a month after AP1 came out.


I bought a CPO one back in December, and my delivery specialist told me that green and brown AP1 cars are basically unicorns in the Tesla world.

Yeah, it can look black/grey in low light. Even in full sunlight it can look very different depending on the angle of the sun. Here are 4 pics of the same car, my car, from a cross country trip.

It's my favorite color. Subtle black color in most lights but has a color shift that makes it unique.

Toyota has a similar dark green/black on their most recent corollas but not as deep.

Our first Model S (2013 P85) was green and our current P85D is green as well. There were no differences in the color between years as far as my eyes can tell.

IMO the original blue and green were too dark. There should have been more contrast with black. They lightened the blue up a bit and the current blue does look like a different color from a black car. I shared a supercharger with a 2013 Green S once. I took a picture of the car and it looks kind of a dirty black in the picture. The owner said he still had an A version battery and he was limited at superchargers to 90 KW.

Green has fallen out of favor as a car color. You could get olive greens for a while, but even those have died out for the most part. Now the trendy color is orange, which hurts my brain. I liked the mid-90s green Subaru used. My SO had a first generation Outback in that color.
