The Model S needs a refresh, and we expect Tesla to update it soon. Here are 8 things Tesla needs to change, and most likely will change in the upcoming Model S.

We’ve been hearing Rumors for about 2 years at this point of the possibility of a Model S refresh, and I think everyone pretty much agrees that it’s time. Looking at a 2012 Model S, and sitting in a 2020 Model S feels pretty much the same.
Of course, the Model S interior has improved, the front bumper has changed, and the performance and range have gotten significantly better, with the Model S touting the best specs of any Tesla, but still, I think most people agree…the difference in price often times isn’t worth it between the Model 3 or Y, and the Model S.
Here are 8 things we expect in the next Model S.
1. Model S updated user interface and screen on the Model S to fit more in line with the Model 3.
We expect to see this, but the question is, will Tesla keep the second instrument panel screen? Or get rid of it like they did in the Model 3? Maybe they’ll add a heads up display?
2. The “Phone as key” feature. Currently in the Model 3 and Model Y, you can use the Tesla app to setup your phone as your key. When you walk up to the car, it connects via bluetooth and unlocks your car for you, and lets you control various features on the car. The Model S does not have this, and we expect Tesla to add it soon.
3. New batteries. Believe it or not, the Model S actually uses an older battery tech called 18650. They have switched to 2170 in the Model 3 and Y which overall seem to be superior, but since not much has changed on the Model S, neither have the batteries.
4. The Tesla Model S actually can’t charge as fast as the Model 3 or Y, the Most S’s cheaper little brothers. We fully expect Tesla to bring full 250kW charging speeds to the Model S in the refresh, and it will be very welcomed since Tesla is bringing out more and more V3 superchargers, and currently the Model S peaks at 200kW.
5. Range. The Model S has recently been upgraded to a range of 391 miles. Now of course in real life, that number gets a little lower, but the number that everyone wants to see in an EV is 400 miles.
Clearly Tesla is going to reach a 400 mile range in the Model S, it’s just a question of time. So when do you think Tesla will hit 400 miles?
6. Plaid powertrain. Elon has talked about this, and we’ve seen this powertrain testing on the track, but it’s expected to beat tons of speed records, and be an absolutely ridiculous performing car with the best range yet, likely hitting the 400 mile mark.
7. Design of the Model S, particularly in the interior. Now, looking at photos of the Model S Plaid, we can see some clear design changes, and additional vents, but overall it’s a normal Model S. So while it would be nice to see a completely redesigned Model S that makes you say “Look at that! It’s a 2021 Model S!”, it might not be that obvious.
8. The return of the rear facing seats??
Back in September, Elon responded to a tweet talking about the Model S 7 seater, and said that in the Plaid Model S they will be bringing back the 7 seater, which includes two smaller rear facing seats. Elon said “The new seats will accommodate larger passengers than before”.
By larger passengers, I think that Elon still must mean older children, because those seats were never large, and without a complete redesign, 7 people just can’t fit comfortably in the Model S, as is probably the same in the Model Y, but we’ll get into that in another video.
Does the Model S feel old to you? And which of these features do you expect to see soon in the Model S? Let me know in the comments below.
