The update to the exteriors of both models remains modest, with less chrome and different rims, making the already attractive Model S look even sleeker and the Model X a little less bulky and appear lower.
However, the real revolution has taken place inside, where the interior of both models is more similar to that of the new Model 3. The most striking thing, however, is the state-of-the-art half steering wheel that instantly makes you think of concept cars at car shows that are never seen again.
Tesla, however, is taking the next step. After first removing the traditional buttons by centralising almost all functions on a large, central touchscreen – something that others are increasingly following suit with, although Americans are now doing something more expensive – the traditional, round steering wheel has gone and been replaced by a yoke-like, half steering wheel.
Strangely enough, Tesla itself doesn't mention it at all in the brief press release that accompanies the facelift, but that, too, is typical of the brand's different way of communicating and which, under the leadership of the flamboyant Elon Musk, has become the most valuable car manufacturer in the world if we look at the stock market value.
