Now on the Tesla website with a bit of a price rise ...
(Thanks for noticing LGGD)
I actually don't mind it too much, the lines seem to work well together. Good job Tesla!
Got to say the Model X front looks absolutely hideous when switching between the two now. Wonder if we'll get a Model X facelift based upon the new Model S
Complete with new led cornering headlamps, hepa filter, centre console, and whar appears to be an added panel above the glove compartment?, piano black interior no longer available. Choice of 4 fake woods or a fake carbon fibre. Funny how wood interiors carry through from the horse and cart days.
I quite like this new look and I think removing the grill is a great idea. It would be better for aerodynamics and pedestrian crash safety. The LED headlights are a very welcome addition but I wonder if we will be able to retrofit them into our existing model?
Hiding the radar sensor is a huge plus for the snow people.
Not finding the new look better or worse, but i'll be curious to know what they have done with the battery posts that used to live behind the nose cone.
If your accessory battery goes flat how do you jump start your Tesla?
Yup, that's the main question- retrofit for the headlights???? Would be excellent.
Care not about the "grill" replacement.
Wow, that price rise... a maxed-out P90DL is now $287k in WA. Will it push over the $300k mark once the 100kWh battery makes an appearance?
It would be interesting to see the new design with plates on.
Maybe they've moved the 12V battery so it's accessible like in a normal car! One can hope....
Seems to be a big jump just selecting the 90 model. You can get a pretty well optioned 70 for less than the base 90D now. Would seem to be a better use of the $ if on a budget given there's not that big of a difference in real world range.
Emailed my delivery specialist and he said I'll be getting the refresh bonnet and built in centre console.
I like, think I preferred the old rear bumper and black skirts, but whatever. New front is great.
From what I can tell, still no fro t door pockets? That's a big disappointment. No ventilated seats either. Perhaps a 12v socket in the boot?
I just don't miss the door pockets. I set my centre console up efficiently, and have gotten very used to not having coins and rubbish flying around my door making noises. Possibly co-incides with my uptake on paywave and what seems like a lack of need for loose coins.
A 12V socket in the boot would be brilliant though, as would a better way to open and especially close the froot.
Just spotted this, I think it looks OK.

When did your order confirm? Mine did on 7/4 and have just been told should sneak in.
I ordered mine Nov 2015 but I asked delivery to be done June 2016. I can't really remember when it confirmed, he he.
Not sure the standard led lights will be any sort of improvement over here, since apparently the existing ones are already maxed out on allowed ADR brightness (lower than they are overseas)
Has the rear changed? I have not been able to see a clear photo of the rear or sides....what's changed on the side?
Yep, they've removed the rear diffuser and chrome finish and gives it a bit of a plainer look, a squarer bottom end. I preferred the old look, but like the nose, so I'll take the good with the meh.
