Tesla Changes Model X and Model S.
As spotted by Electrek, the manufacturer released cheaper versions of its X and S model with a 100kWh battery now that you can not buy the 75kWh
Now sells Model S for $ 85,000 and its range is locked by software up to 310 miles (498 kilometers). The X model is for $ 88,000, with a range of 270 miles (434 km).
bought the regular 100kWh versions of Model X and Model S that add a better range. These cars will cost another $ 8,000 and will have the title "Extended Range", which will be placed at the end of their respective model names, and will come a little cheaper than before.
The faster models, which were known as the S model and the Model X P100D, are now "Model S and X Performance" and are priced at $ 112,000 for the S model and $ 117,000 for the X model.
Tesla has also split the "Ludrickus Mode" from these models, so if you want this acceleration you'll need to crash $ 20,000 to upgrade.
These price changes come after CEO Elon Musk suddenly closed sales of the cheapest versions of Model S and Model X in early January, both of which had a 75 kWh battery. Tesla now produces only one type of Model X and Model S batteries.
The weight loss option is part of Tesla's simplification of production processes – which includes cutting seven standard colors by five last September –
Tesla also cuts part of its workforce earlier this month, and gains for Q4 2018 on Wednesday should help to make a clearer picture of the future of the carmaker after a very, very challenging year.
