Between the years of 2012-2018, Tesla offered the Model S sedan equipped with a 60 kWh battery pack option. Nestled into the floor of the vehicle’s aluminum chassis, this lithium ion battery pack provides a range of 208 miles with each full charge. Considered a battery and range upgrade from the 40 kWh, this model offers many of the similar signature benefits of Tesla ownership without the range anxiety of a smaller battery pack. The vehicle’s rear wheel drive transmission gives the 60 kWh Model S sedan an entertaining and smooth ride. Drivers have the option of opting for a standard electric motor or the performance motor, which offers an additional kick for those drawn to the speed capabilities of the Model S.
Those looking to express their custom style preferences in the Model S are met with an array of options, from tailoring the dashboard texture, choosing the interior color, and selecting between standard multi-pattern textile seats, leather seats, or a vegan leather seat option that emerged in 2016. The interior design was made to be sleek and modern, drawing its beautiful lines to snuggly house the vehicle’s 17-inch touch screen control panel.
The scope of technology options for the 60 kWh battery pack vary drastically depending on the year of the Model S. The 2017-2018 60 kWh Model S offers every bell and whistle that would excite any autopilot enthusiast: Autopilot Tech Package (2016), Enhanced Autopilot (EAP), Full Self Driving Capabilities, and Hardware 2.0 and 2.5. The 2016 60 kWh Model S offers the same roster of capabilities, and is equipped with Hardware 1 and 2.0. If the vehicle was originally ordered without any autopilot selected as an option, the hardware and software can be subsequently added. The 2014-2015 60 kWh Model S offers the Autopilot Tech Package without the autopilot hardware, though Hardware 1.0 can be added by any Tesla owners who are ironclad on the autopilot experience. The 2012-2013 60 kWh Model S does not come equipped with autopilot hardware and software, and is not capable of having either installed (this is often depicted as Hardware 0 or HW0).
From the exterior, the Model S was crafted to turn heads. Between the years of 2012-2018 consumers could design the 60 kWh Model S with over a dozen paint varieties, including the popular Obsidian Black Metallic that emerged in 2015 and Titanium Metallic that ran from 2012-2016. A variety of 19” standard and 21” performance wheel options give drivers the opportunity to further customize their Model S according to both style and functionality.
