And there a lot more to mention: hypercar-like dynamics, incredible safety, enhanced self-driving capabilities.


TIME magazine valued the Model S significance for society, but from the unexpected angle – they added electric car to the list of the best gadgets of 2010s. They paid special attention to Tesla technology — for instance, huge touchscreen, over-the-air updates and Autopilot.
