Specs and standard features are up!
Model S Specs and Standard Features | Tesla Motors
Here's a few things that we haven't had mentioned/confirmed before (I think!):
Rain sensing, adjustable speed windshield wipers
Halogen headlights with automatic on/off and LED daytime running lights (DRLs)
Backlit side turn signals, front side marker lights and rear reflex lights
LED rear taillights and high-mounted LED stop lamp
Anti-Lock disc brakes (ABS) with ventilated rotors and electronic parking brake
Open center console storage area
Electronic door handles (Interior!)
60/40 split second row seats
Flash memory storage for up to 500 songs.
Three spoke, multi-function steering wheel with tactile controls
Tire pressure monitoring system
Driver seat detection sensor for start/stop functionality
Standard definition backup camera
Manual rear liftgate
Power tilt and telescopic steering column
Micro-filter ventilation system with replaceable filters
Front LED map lights and rear LED reading lights
Front sun visors with LED illuminated mirrors
Dual front USB ports for media and power
Crash sensor for high voltage disconnect
Frunk and rear cargo area release handles
yay, something to brighten my morning!
i wonder if them quoting this as standard means the X-style wheel might be in an upgrade?
*edit* some things I found:
Confirmation of playback types: 200 watt, seven speaker stereo system with AM/FM/HD radio. Supports MP3, AAC, and MP4 music formats. System includes four speakers, two tweeters and one center channel speaker. Flash memory storage for up to 500 songs.
Not sure if it was previously *confirmed* but cruise control is good to go
Power windows featuring one-touch up and down with resistance reversing to protect against pinched fingers -- wasnt there talk of beheadings? Tesla listened
Automatic climate control with dual zone temperature settings, air distribution controls and recirculation - Love dual zone!
Driver and front passenger seat sensors - they can use this to detect if there's a passenger and disable or enable the web if need be
Horn. Beep. Beep. - haha
Guess no power folding mirrors, or not available on base cars (maybe tech package?)
Love the "Horn. Beep Beep!!" great touch you'd never see from the Big 3
flush door handles, looks like elon got what he wanted. as well as me.
Yea, saw that. I remember somebody months ago (here or maybe on Tesla's forum) calling it a deal breaker if they weren't powered. I practically did a spit take. Deal breaker, really? Whatever floats their boat I guess.
Yea, that was hilarious. Gave me a nice smile to start my day!
"Micro-filter ventilation system with replaceable filters" is one I used to have on my M5 :love: !
The Model S can't come soon enough....Today's news in FL: Allergy sufferers brace for pollen onslaught
They're really great to have -- when you need them. In my case anyhow, I rarely need them. I can't imagine turning down everything the Model S has to offer because you can't be a$$ed to push your mirror in when you get out.
That said, I hope they're optional.
I hope the Tech package will support FLAC audio format. Multi-channel FLAC would be a nice touch.
Ok, so count on me for the stupid question of the morning:
... haven't seen this before. Meaning if you get out of the car (or lose a lot of weight) the car will not move?
See MPT's post and Youtube video on the BME active E. He praised this as "getting it right"
Oh, and really nice to see backup camera be standard.
Nice marketing touch back on the options page:
Thanks, Tesla! Beep, Beep.
So, traditional spring suspension after all as standard. Not "passive air suspension" as some of us speculated.
Good to have this as standard. Most luxury sedan makers/dealers quote $400 or more for this.
No dedicated subwoofer?! One'd have to get the Sound Studio Package option (with the Dolby 7.1 system) for that, I guess.
And, "frunk" is official!! WhiteKnight, can you ask for some royalty payments there?! :wink:
Yeah, I was hoping more had changed there
Things excluded that I'm happy aren't included:
Pedestrian alert noisemaker
"Standard features" missing that some have hoped for:
Front fog lights? LED foglights are part of the Tech Package, so I assumed that standard fog lights were part of the base
Heated side mirrors
Storage compartments in doors
Rear cupholders (likely an oversight in the list)
12-V power outlet in frunk and/or rear cargo area
Automatic tilt-down of passenger's side-view mirror while in Reverse
Also, no discussion yet of warranty, other than for the battery.
From the features page:
I'm guessing it's related to that ^
At one point, we were told that buckling the driver's seatbelt was effectively the on/off switch.
I don't mind not having them, especially when you consider that all the little things like the auto folding mirrors (and auto lift gate for that matter) all add weight, reduce reliability and add up to reduce range. We shouldn't take for granted some of the steps tesla makes to keep the car as light as it is.
I was hoping for "Horn. Deafening Roar." or "Horn. Ahhooga, Ahhooga!"
