5 reasons to buy the 2022 Tesla Model S

1. Incredible performance

The 2022 Tesla Model S is best known for its performance numbers in a straight line, with the top-of-the-line Plaid trim capable of a sub-two-second acceleration from zero to 60 mph (according to the manufacturer, when new). With its 1,020 peak hp, the 2022 Model S also claims a top speed of 200 mph. All this adds up to a vehicle that will put a smile on your face as soon as you hit the pedal, thanks to the electric motors' near instantaneous torque. The torque also comes in handy when merging into freeway traffic or pulling away from stoplights.

2. Impressive range

The electric drive is the biggest difference between the Tesla Model S and most other vehicles on the market. With up to an EPA-estimated 405 miles of all-electric driving range on a full charge in the 2022 Tesla Model S Dual Motor, this sleek sedan is ready for your regular commute or even a road trip.

 The range of the Model S can make any trip a breeze.

3. Robust charging network

If your next destination is farther than a single charge can take you, Tesla's Supercharger network is there to keep you going. With more than 35,000 global Superchargers located along major roadways, your 2022 Model S is prepared for any journey. The built-in navigation will also plan charging stops along your route based on your driving behavior and the charge levels of your vehicle.

4. Modern interior

The 2022 Tesla Model S is a tech-lover's dream, with a 17-inch touchscreen that controls everything from audio and climate to navigation and drive modes. It even boasts in-car gaming for your passengers. The interior is upscale, with a flat floor that allows up to three adults to sit comfortably in the rear seats. With its rear hatchback design and folding rear seatbacks, the 2022 Model S can also carry a bicycle while leaving the front trunk available for additional cargo.

5. Advanced driver-assistance technology

The 2022 Tesla Model S is equipped with technology to assist you on the road, such as 360-degree cameras to help you while parking or to alert you of vehicles around you while driving. The available Tesla Autopilot feature enables your car to steer, accelerate, and brake automatically within its traffic lane, which is helpful in stop-and-go traffic. Tesla's summon feature even allows your vehicle to move out of a tight parking spot, giving you an easier point of entry into your vehicle.
