Since its launch in the UK in 2013, the Tesla Model S has always been viewed as a 

seriously capable EV thanks to its excellent range, efficiency and usability.

Now, ten years on since its arrival in the UK, the new Model S has arrived in 1020bhp Plaid form. 

So is this latest version still a capable all-round EV, or is it a fully-fledged super-saloon ready to do battle with the current crop of performance electric cars? Let's find out.

Tesla has revealed little about the technical updates it has rolled out in the new Model S.

But this hasn’t stopped some third party organisations from cutting into a Model S and diving deep into its chassis to learn what's new – and while the car retains its original shape, under the skin it has changed significantly.
