    Does model s come with handbrake? Putting the car in park mode might not be enough to stop the car from rolling back in some of the uphill roads. Such as the observatory road in tst.

    Model S has an electric parking brake with separate calipers on the rear wheels. It activates automatically when you put the car in park.

    Not a manual one.

    Park engages a second set of brake calipers on the rear wheels, so it's effectively the same as a handbrake / emergency break in other cars.

    You can also hold in the Park button on the stalk while driving for an emergency brake.
