Tesla Model S gets design refresh and faster charging

New interior options join list of changes made to Model S

Tesla has updated the Model S with a redesigned front end and the choice of two different wood finishes for the interior. Pricing for the new look Model S, which is on sale now, will start at £53,800 for the entry-level 70D model.
