Tesla S3XY differences

Tesla technically have 4 models in the line up albeit with very different degrees of availability, in some areas it has been just the Model 3. With the Model Y now starting to ship in Europe and the new Model S in America choice is finally starting to increase globally. While most buyers are familiar with a number of the key differences, we've put together a side by side comparison of all 4 of the current models that Tesla offer. It's worth acknowledging that the specification of the cars has changed over the years, so this applies to the current new car specification. Older models, especially of the Model S and Model X, may not have some of the current options, or they may have been a cost option at the time. In essence, specifications change over time, so while we try to maintain the accuracy of this, please confirm any specific aspect in your region if your buying decision depends on it.

* Tesla continually tweak the performance and range of the cars and the otherwise similar cars can be different, for instance the MS had its EPA range increased by 6 miles in late 2020 but there is no way obvious way to know this from the car.
