Tesla Model S70d interior is a sight to behold. The full computer panel screen is around the size of an iPad, and gives you a range of diagnostic features so you know exactly how efficient your Tesla is, and if anything needs improving. The seats are large and comfortable, and the back seats will easily fit the three passengers that it says it can contain without them having to bunch up together – also, the attention to detail as regards the finish is superb.
