Tesla Model S, Model X ranges get major upgrades

Tesla Model S, Model X ranges get major upgrades

Model S Long Range will have an industry leading 370-mile range per single charge, while Model X will boast a 325-mile range per charge.

You can find out more information on the change coming to the Tesla Model S and Model X cars at the link below. The vehicle appeared to be a Model S sedan, but Tesla did not confirm the model, according to the BBC. Elon Musk tweeted that the "New Model S has 370 mile / 595 km range". In March, another Model S burst into flames in Guangzhou; it was not being charged at the time, and had previously suffered no accidents. The setup is more efficient in terms of energy generation and power production, and the inherent deficiency in a permanent-magnet motor-namely that it produces drag when not needed-isn't much of an issue on the Model S, as, well, it's needed pretty much all of the time.

Approximately 40 similar incidents involving wiring and battery packs have affected electric cars in China in the previous year.

Footage of the Tesla billowing smoke before bursting into flames, caught on the carpark's CCTV cameras, quickly went viral on social media platforms across the country, prompting auto owners to question the safety of Tesla and other new energy vehicles. Even Tesla's misleading "after savings" price on its configurator, which doesn't factor in the $1200 destination charge and optimistically assumes thousands in fuel savings, looked too dear.

To wit, the new Tesla Model S and Model X are getting a boost in both performance and range.

If you've already bought a Model X or Model Y, you might feel a little frustrated to be missing out.

Achieving an extended range with the same 100kWh battery pack is impressive enough, but the more efficient drivetrain design means the vehicles also recharge faster. Fully adaptive air suspension has also been upgraded to keep rides smooth, an especially important feature to get the best experience possible when using Autopilot. Improvements to the suspension will also help to increase performance over time.

On top of the range improvements, fast-charging has also been made 50 per cent faster, with up to 200 kW achieved from Tesla's proprietary V3 Superchargers and 145 kW on V2 Superchargers. Tesla also is offering current Model S and X owners free Ludicrous Mode if they buy a new Performance model Model S or X. The option runs $20,000 otherwise.
