Tesla Model S And Model X 100D Drop Performance For Greater Range

Tesla has taken a break from releasing ever-faster variants Model S and Model X and launched the 100D variants of both models.

Lacking the ‘P’ (Performance) of the previously-released Model S and Model X range-toppers, the 100D focuses less on straight line acceleration and more on range.

With that in mind, its EPA-estimated range sits at 335 miles (539 km), marginally greater than the 315 mile (506 km) range of the P100D, thus giving the Model S 100D the longest range of any production EV.

Despite lacking the P badge, the Model S 100D is still blisteringly quick, capable of hitting 60 mph (96 km/h) in a mere 4.2 seconds. Prices for the Tesla Model S 100D are also significantly cheaper than the P100D starting at $95,000 compared to the $130,000+ starting price of a P100D.

As for the Model X 100D, its all-electric range sits at 295 miles (474 km).

    Saw a Model X in person at my local K-Mart. Gotta say, doesn’t look as bad as it does in the picture. I wouldn’t buy one though, for obvious reasons…

      It definitely looks better from some angles. But overall, it looks like an identical twin of the Model S that’s been on a diet of pizza and beer. I test drove one a few months ago, and I fell in love with it in spite of the looks. It’s an amazing car.

    That’s more like it. Electric cars don’t need to go faster, they need to go farther.
