The Tesla Model S and Model X range has been updated with a new colour scheme. Now, the electric flagship and SUV can also be ordered in select countries in Lunar Silver, which is already available on the official configurator.

On Tesla's official UK site, the Model S and Model X are prominently shown in the new colour, however, Tesla is not accepting new orders for these models at the moment. For reference, in Italy the option costs €2,600 (approx. £2,215 at the current exchange rate), on a par with the Stealth Black and Ultra Red colours, while Ocean Blue Metallic and Pastel Black cost €1,600 and Mica White Pearl is standard.

What the new colour looks like

Tesla defines Lunar Silver as a colour characterised by 'a clean silver with a pronounced metallic effect and a subtle blue tinge'. Furthermore, the company points out that new paint pigments were used to create the colour to achieve a 'unique dynamic effect'.
