Can anyone comment on their experience with this model?

I have 60kW version and my experience is mostly positive especially considering that it was the cheapest Model S ever sold. I usually get up to 200mi of range. If this is not enough for your needs, you might want to look for a model with 85kWh battery. There is one rear motor in 60 & 85 models and dual motors (AWD) in the P85D.

Considering getting a used 2014 Model S. Does anyone know how is battery holding charge after 9 years?

Is there an upgrade front grille kit available for this car to make it look like 2017 Model S?

What OS Tesla main display computer use? Looks like Linux but I’d like to know for sure.

Looking to buy one of these as it is being offered for a reasonable price.
I hear all 2014 Model S cars come with unlimited supercharging.
Is that transferable to the second or third owner?

My 2014 Model S still has a very powerful acceleration like on the day one. Battery range is still good, although it dropped around 15% from when the car was new.

I’ve noticed that car performance and stability improves with better quality tires. There are very significant forces that we need to take into consideration when driving electric cars with fast acceleration.

As someone who has owned both Audi and Mercedes cars all my life, I was impressed by the Model S’s superiority in 2014. While the car still performs flawlessly, I’m thinking about upgrading to 2023 model, just to get the newest tech. Electric vehicles like the Model S can seem intimidating until you own one, but once you do, it’s hard to imagine going back to gas engine cars.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
