The release of the 2022 Tesla Model S Performance is not here just yet. So far, there is no official information from Tesla regarding this high-performance variant of Model S. The currently available year model of this vehicle is the 2020 version. It comes as a top-notch update from the 2019 release. Right after the time of release, it hit the second spot in both Best Midsize Sedans and Best Electric Sedans categories. It is reasonable for the 2022 version to build a tremendous hype out there.
Looking Back at the 2020 Version
One of the well-known car review websites considers the Model S Performance as the speed king in its thorough report. Among the good things about the vehicle is its unmatched acceleration in its class or segment. The overall rating is remarkably at the level of 9.5 out of 10. Its acceleration sits at 2.4 seconds to hit 60mph. That makes it better than the Porsche Taycan Turbo S. Although it is large and heavy, its performance is top-notch.
That performance comes out of the perfect synchronization of two electric motors. The combined power out of those motors is at 778 horsepower with 841 pounds/feet of torque. The peak power is always available to harvest at any time since it is an electric vehicle. The top speed to expect from this car is 163 mph. If those things remain in the 2020 version, it can easily be the best Tesla to buy in 2022. More importantly, it will most likely retain its title of the speed king.
Will It Come Soon Enough after the Standard Version?
Considering the availability of the standard variant of Model S, the 2022 Tesla Model S Performance should not be too far behind. If Tesla plans to refresh this variant, it will probably hit the market at the end of this year. Nevertheless, it is not a sure thing at all at the moment.
With the MSRP of the 2022 Model S at $79,990, the Performance model may retain its $91,990 MSRP from the 2020 release. The platform of the car will not be getting any change at all. It will be a high-performance luxury sedan with electric power. Splashes of new exterior colors can be among the new things to expect from this car later on. All in all, 2020 is a good one already. Therefore, the 2022 Tesla Model S Performance will not be getting too many changes to expect. The wait continues.
