Next-generation Tesla Model S unveiled

  • New Tesla Model S gets new headlights and CCS charging port

  • First time the Tesla Model S is unveiled outside of North America

The new Tesla Model S is expected to arrive in North America later this year as the next generation was unveiled in Taiwan today.

This new Tesla Model S doesn’t seem to have received many changes at first glance, but it does offer some new technologies.

For starters, the headlights have the matrix system like on the Tesla Model 3. In other words, this technology allows for better illumination of the road by using different diodes that can be turned off independently of each other in the headlights. The concrete result is that it is possible to maintain maximum illumination even when passing another vehicle while only a portion of the headlight reduces in brightness. The headlight is also adaptive on the new Model S to follow curves.

Perhaps the most important change is the addition of a CCS (Combined Charging System) plug that combines the Combo 1 and Combo 2 connectors to charge up to 350 kW.

The new Tesla Model X will also have this charger. The rear end has been slightly revised also in the Model S with new taillights and a different design for the upper part of the trunk.
