The Ultimate Guide To All Tesla Models – S 3 X Y Roadster

Tesla models are becoming more and more popular with almost 100,000 car deliveries made in Q4 of December ’18 alone. But with the latest release of the Tesla Model Y being the sixth car from Tesla in total, including the Roadster 2.0, it’s starting to become difficult to differentiate between models.

This guide has been put together to make it easier for potential buyers to decide which Model they want with the main differences displayed on this page. Further information coming soon.
