Tesla Plans On New Variants Of Model S Sedan

Written By:

US based electric carmaker Tesla has plans to introduce two variants of its Model S sedan. One will be an entry level version while the other will be a top of the line variant.

The entry level Model S is to be priced at USD 70,000, while the top end model, Model S 90D and P90D will be priced USD 10,000 more than the existing model and will offer longer range and better performance.

The new entry level Model S will be equipped with a 70 kWh, single-motor, while the top of the line variant will be equipped with a 90 kWh battery pack.

Current owners of the Model S 85 and the dual-motor 85D and P85D can upgrade their cars to this new battery pack by paying around USD 5,000.

The 90 kWh battery pack will provide the cars with a longer range of nearly 300 miles at a constant speed of 55 mph, thus increasing the time between charges.

The Model S P90D will deliver a 753 horsepower from its two motors, enabling the car to reach 60 mph from a standstill in just 2.8 seconds. Top speed though will be electronically limited to 155 miles per hour.
