Demand for Tesla’s Model S is higher than ever, and a series of pictures of the model outside the factory have surfaced this week, including new ones revealing at least 150 of the model outside a Tesla factory.
New photographs received by Tesmanian Tuesday show a developing fleet of refreshed Model S units outside Tesla’s Fremont, California factory. The vehicles, which were spotted a few days ago, are likely being readied for delivery in a larger production push as the company nears the end of Q1 2021 – a regular production increase at Tesla which occurs nearing the end of every quarter.

According to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Model S and X demand is so high that the S and X production assembly lines will soon move to double-shift operation once again.
Tesla’s refreshed Model S and X units have been getting some extra buzz lately, with a new interior and a newly-designed yoke-style steering wheel. The National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently contacted Tesla regarding the yoke-style steering wheel, signaling that it may not necessarily be road safe.
It remains unclear if an NHTSA investigation into the wheel is still ongoing, though it has already been considered legal by the United Kingdom’s safety regulator.
