Fully Charged Checks Out Tesla Model S Wagon

MAY 1 2018 BY MARK KANE 7

Qwest Norfolk completed its Tesla Model S conversion to a Tesla Model S station wagon, estate or shooting brake ,if you wish.

We already saw some photos of the car earlier this year here and there, but now we can watch the full presentation of it in Fully Charged.

The Model S used in the process is from 2015. According to the review, it’s now slightly lighter, appears quieter and maybe even more aerodynamic (more range). Passengers in the rear have more headroom and of course, the owner of the car is now glad to have space for a dog.

The car apparently passes Tesla inspection and can use Superchargers, just like the normal factory-made Tesla.

Changes:

  • Rear roof: The sections of the coach built conversion, including the roof, are manufactured at a specialist carbon fiber producer who traditionally produce F1 components for leading teams, before being meticulously hand assembled by Qwest’s Skilled engineers to account for the variances in the TESLA building systems.
  • Rear doors: The QWEST carbon fiber body shell is bonded to the Tesla’s Aluminium utilising the latest in aeronautical chemical multi material bonding systems and painted in the client’s choice of matching or contrasting colours with subtle, tantalizing glimpses of the carbon fiber weave around the bespoke tail gate opening.
  • Rear side: The new larger rear three-quarter glass and specially curved rear roof glass are provided by world leader in automotive glass, Pilkington, securing global coverage for the car’s glazing.

A Tesla Model S station wagon could be an interesting option for many, but the conversion comes at a relatively high price, initially from £60,000 ($84,000 or €68,000) plus the cost of the car itself.

“Yes, at last it’s the Tesla shooting brake. Only about three months later than we planned. Apologies. No question, the folks at QWest do an amazing job, okay not exactly cheap but very beautifully executed and highly professional. And Tesla Ted is equally impressive.”

🤢🤮 …and I’m a wagon guy.

Tesla Model S Wagon aka the funeral edition.

Come on Tesla make this or something equivalent. The Model X sucks.

That weird rear fender hump ruins the whole crease line down the side and makes the rear too chunky.

Fugly and I love Avants!

In my opinion station wagons are a unattractive, dated-looking form factor so it’s odd to see a Tesla converted to one.

And in my opinion the station wagon is the best form factor for a family car, or working car ever invented. It’s odd Tesla hasn’t made something like this if they were really about efficiency.
