2017 Tesla Model S Wagon Rendered Based on Recent Facelift

Ever wondered what the Tesla Model S would look like with the grille from the Model 3 and the trunk of a Volvo? Here's your chance to find out.

A rendering of the wagon Model S is pointless on many levels. For starters, the car is a hatchback anyway, having had the 7-seat option from the start. Nobody fills their EV to the roof like they would a delivery van.

If the Model S is not practical enough for you, Tesla also offers the Model X crossover. In addition to having a large trunk, it also boasts doors that open sky high. What more can you want?

If you'd have asked Tesla owners that question last week, they would have given you a long list of features for the facelift. Unfortunately, the company wasn't listening, and we didn't get any 100 kWh battery option.

The automaker instead focused on the cosmetic side of the equation. The headlights have been completely refreshed and now contain 14 LEDs each. After millions of YouTube videos, stories, and Twitter posts, the world has gotten used to the idea that a car can run only on electricity. Thus, the Model S doesn't need to pretend that it needs a front grille and has lost it. Check out both these major upgrades in the wagon rendering made by X-Tomi!

Sadly, the back of the car is almost completely untouched by the cosmetic refresh. The floating display from the Model 3 seems space age when compared to what we see here. Fortunately, the 2017 facelift adds a few welcomed features from the Model X, including the HEPA air filtration system and the Bioweapon Defense Mode.

In totally unrelated but quite funny news, the latest over-the-air update for existing cars adds Mario Kart to the infotainment. More specifically, the lane on which the car picture turns into a little rainbow if you repeatedly press a stalk. The reaction in this video perfectly expresses how we feel about it.
