The Tesla Model S sport seats were announced towards the end of October and here is the first look at them. The optional seats are priced at $3,500 and are available only in leather. Their specialties are the larger side bolsters and contoured bottoms.
Called as the “Next generation seats” by the company, they are an optional extra for the recently launched P85D variant of the Model S. The P85D is a high performance version of the Model S that comes with an all-wheel drive chassis, with a 211 bhp front motor working together with the 470 bhp rear motor. Combined, the motors develop an output of 691 bhp and 930 Nm.
The vehicle takes only 3.2 seconds to do the 0-60 mph sprint, one second quicker compared to the P85.
At some point, the sport seats should become optional throughout the model range.
