That’s right folks, if there is another reason to switch to electric, Tesla has slashed the prices on the Model S in the UAE and Jordan. When we published our EV Buyer Guide last month, the prices were AED 334,900 and JOD 76,990. Now, the global leader in EVs has dropped its prices to AED 322,990 and JOD 73,990.
That’s good drop, albeit the car is still more expensive than its home base in the good ol’ US of A.
Though the exterior design is almost outdated, the Tesla Model S remains, in our opinion, the best car most available in the region. It hit the world by storm, providing sheer driving pleasure and insane speed performance, constantly increasing through system updates. There are two trims available in the Middle East and both can be further customized. You can either go for distance or speed.
It is refined, spacious, looks serious, and amazingly fast. Everything you need in an electric car. You pretty much get the same features as the US versions minus the autonomous driving – our region is not ready for that quite yet.
The Model S is powered by dual-motors, with each dedicated to the front and rear axles separately – offering all-wheel drive across all trim packages. There are various modes available in the US, like Ludicrous and Cheetah modes, however, in the region we are limited to just the two: Long Range, and Performance. From those that we know that own, they are in love with it and would not exchange it for any other cars on the road. Speed wise, they even prefer it over conventional super cars like the Nissan GT-R.
