Costing $6,500 (€4,966), the Performance Plus pack will include upgraded stabilizer bars and bushings and wider Michelin rear tires. Measuring 20 mm wider than the previous ones, they will ensure better acceleration and grip in fast corners.

Another benefit from the beefier tires will be that the car will be able to achieve a better mileage, squeezing between 6 and 12 mpg more from its all-electric drivetrain. We'll remind you that the Tesla Model S uses a 310 kW (421 hp) electric motor that sends all the power to the rear axle.

Despite its green nature, it can accelerate the car from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 209 km/h (130 mph).
