The Tesla Model S Plaid is the New Coolest Place to Just Hangout

The Tesla Model S Plaid is the latest and greatest consumer car from Tesla, with a hefty price tag and surprising performance statistics. It adds excitement to an ever-growing world of all-electric vehicles, giving buyers the option to get performance and luxury wrapped into a vehicle that doesn’t burn any gasoline, but it is more than just a car. Besides the fact that it gets you from point A to point B, the Tesla Model S combines all of the great hidden features and Easter Eggs we’ve found snuck into other Tesla Models to create a vehicle that is worth just sitting in your driveway after work just a little bit longer.

You don’t have to worry about burning too much gas, or emmisions

Unlike a gas-powered vehicle, you don’t have to think about how much money you are wasting by just sitting in your car with the engine still on. Besides the lack of guilt, you can also sit in your garage with the garage door closed, because there are no harmful gasses emitted from the vehicle that can give you carbon monoxide poisoning (a friendly reminder not to sit in an enclosed space such as a garage with a hybrid vehicle, as they still have gasoline engines).

You can literally play video games in the Tesla Model S Plaid

After a long day, sometimes it’s just nice to scroll through social media or play a few games on our phone before we head inside — and the Tesla Model S Plaid takes this to a whole new level. On the large infotainment screen, you can select from an entire arcade of games available, and, even cooler, you use the Tesla’s ‘yolk’ (the steering wheel) as a giant gaming controller. Bored? Just go outside or into your garage and enjoy some video games in your Tesla Model S Plaid. In fact, with all of the games offered, you might just find yourself going out of your way to spend some extra time in your Tesla. If video games aren’t your thing, you can also stream movies, YouTube, and Netflix right onto the screen — put it in romance mode and you can have a night out without even leaving your…car.

It has an actual camping mode for when you really want to hangout in your car

Whether you’re relaxing for a few hours while your child finishes soccer practice or ballet rehearsal, or stopping to camp out in your Tesla Model S Plaid, the vehicle comes equipped with a fancy and useful camping mode. This mode is simple, and if you’ve ever had an electric vehicle or hybrid that shuts itself off after a certain amount of inactivity, you can appreciate just how cool this feature is. With camp mode, the Tesla maintains all of it’s electrical features, such as cabin lights and air conditioning or heating, at least until your car reaches 20% battery life (to ensure that the vehicle doesn’t die completely and you can still make it back to a charger).

The Tesla Model S Plaid was truly designed to be customer-focused, taking in all of the critiques from the previous model years and making minor adjustments and tweaks to make the latest Tesla model even better than before, with a completely new redesign that makes it worth buying new rather than buying an older, used Tesla.
