Tesla Model S Active Air Suspension Demo

A few weeks ago, Tesla stated that it is dominating the American luxury market and has outsold cars like the Audi A8 or Mercedes S-Class. While at first glance comparing EVs with luxury limos is like comparing apples with genetically modified soybeans, hat’s not the case.

The Tesla Models comes with all the bells and whistles you’d expect inside the cabin of Merc, plus it takes steps into the future age of the automobile with a completely digitized center console that allows you to change every setting using just the 17-inch touchscreen display.

A lesser known fact about the Model S is that it’s available with a very Audi-like system. More specifically, it has Active Air Suspension, which raises the ride height from "Very High" to "Low" to help you deal with lumps and bumps in the road. The car automatically adjusts to the "Low" setting at highway speeds, and back to "Normal" at lower speeds. An all that’s done by sliding you finger on a screen. Brilliant!
