Tesla inconspicuously shows off new Model S taillights in event listing

model s new taillights

Tesla was planning to show off new Model S headlights and taillights at a special event in Taiwan last month.

However after pictures surfaced online a few hours before the event officially took place, Tesla strangely placed a car cover over the Model S, preventing anyone from seeing the car up close.

Today Tesla inconspicuously shared an official image of the new taillights and integrated charge port door on their events website. (h/t: @endlessplaid)

The new image is unfortunately not very high quality, but we can see the trim piece on the trunk no longer extends into the taillights. The illuminated section of the taillight is now also a little narrower, with a black section underneath.

We also see the new charge port door, which can feature a CCS plug for those markets that use that charging standard.

You can use the slider below to see the difference between the old and new designs.


We still don’t know when Tesla will add the new headlights and taillights to their production lines, but with the unveiling of them last month, and this new image appearing on the website today, it should happen very soon.
