The Model S has long been the bread and butter of Tesla's business and now the popular electric car is getting a refresh that gives it an updated look and new features. Two of the biggest updates include a HEPA filter that was once exclusive to the Model X and an upgrade to the car charger that gives it 48 amp charging capacity.

If you're familiar with the Model X then you'll know about the much-talked about Bioweapon Defense Mode that helps eliminate any potentially harmful contaminants from the cabin air. You'll also notice that the front end gets a whole new look with the grille-less design that is now trademark element across the model range. Other updates will include adaptive headlights and two new interior options.
