Tesla Motors is reportedly preparing to introduce a mid-cycle update for its Model S sedan.
The refresh is said to be aimed at streamlining Tesla’s manufacturing process and upgrading the vehicle to attract more buyers. The achieve the latter goal, the front fascia has been revised with styling cues borrowed from the Model 3 and Model X, unnamed sources have told CNET. LED headlights and new colors are also expected.
Borrowing more technology from the Model X, the revamped sedan is also said to feature new front seats with optional heating and ventilation. Other reported interior tweaks include new storage compartments and door pockets.
The report did not mention the rumored P100D variant. A detail buried in software code recently hinted at a new 100-kWh battery, providing even more range than the current 90-kWh pack.
The refresh could be introduced as early as next week. The company is said to be retooling its Fremont factory for the changeover, and buyers are expected to face a higher price tag for the facelift.
