New Tesla Model S


Let's talk range. The BMW i7 boasts roughly 300 miles of driving range, depending on your chosen trim level and wheel/tire configuration. The Standard Tesla Model S is good for 405 miles of range, while the Plaid version can take you 396 on a single charge, while 21-inch wheels bring that down to 348.

In terms of power, the Standard Tesla Model S produces 670 horsepower with dual-electric motors. The BMW i7 is similarly equipped, with the dual-motor system making 536 horsepower and 549 pound-feet of torque.

Depending on your use case, The Tesla may offer a bit more power than you need to accomplish your daily duties in Waukee. Plus, the interior of the Tesla is hyper-modern, with a single screen controlling the entirety of the vehicle's operations. The BMW i7 is more conventional while still packed with bleeding-edge tech.

Safety Features

The Tesla Model S provides Marshalltown drivers with the following safety features: blind-spot warnings, lane departure warnings, a lane-keeping system, adaptive cruise control, and forward collision warnings.
