Tesla Model S And X Long Range Models Now Boast Up To 370 Miles Of Range

Tesla has boosted the ranges of its long-distance Model S and Model X vehicles thanks to a new electric motor design.

According to the electric car manufacturer, the Model S Long Range now boasts a range of 370 miles (595 km), 35 miles (56 km) more than it could previously achieve. Similarly, the Model X Long Range can now travel up to 325 miles (523 km) on a single charge, a bump of 30 miles (48 km) over the previous model.

The Tesla Model S Performance and Model X Performance also benefit from the car manufacturer’s newly designed electric motors and boast ranges of 345 miles (555 km) and 305 miles (490 km) respectively.

All of these models achieve their newly improved range figures while retaining the same 100 kWh battery pack of the previous models. All of the efficiency gains come from an optimized permanent magnet synchronous reluctance motor, silicon carbide power electronics, as well as improved lubrication, cooling, bearings, and gear designs. Tesla says this results in efficiency improvements in both directions as energy flows out of the battery during accelerating and back into the battery through regenerative braking.

Tesla also says its new-and-improved electric motors results in significant power and torque increases for all Model S and Model X variants but hasn’t provided specifics. However, it has been confirmed that the new Tesla Model S Long Range will hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in 3.7 seconds, an improvement of 0.4 seconds over the previous model. The Model X Long Range does the 0-60 mph sprint in 4.4 seconds.

All Tesla Model S and Model X versions are now capable of achieving 200 kW charging on V3 Superchargers and 145 kW on V2 Superchargers.

Tesla will also introduce a new adaptive suspension system for the Model S and Model X.

    With 600km, there goes my range anxiety. Really insane stuff from Tesla, they’re literally years ahead on the EV game. Props to them

    Further range and faster charging. Damn… time to upgrade! The only thing I could ask for is that the Performance version to achieve the same range as the long-range version, since it costs so much more.

    Does that include air con on radio on the huge screen always on apps working ?

    Why doesn’t Tesla use a two speed motor like my lawnmower and pool filter? Wouldn’t that extend the range?
