Long Range versions of Tesla Model S and Model X are now available with extended drive ranges, increasing to 370 miles and 325 miles, respectively.
Additional range, power, and torque increases have also been made across all Model S and Model X variants, improving 0-60 mph times for both the Long Range and Standard Range models, according to the automaker. The vehicles now benefit from Tesla’s latest generation of drive unit technology which is designed to achieve greater than 93% efficiency.
The added range to both vehicles was accomplished without increasing the cars’ battery size, according to Tesla.
With the improved drivetrain design, the Model S and Model X are now capable of achieving 200 kW on V3 Superchargers and 145 kW on V2 Superchargers, which has improved charge times by 50%, according to Tesla. The air suspension system for both vehicles is also improved on the Model S and Model X now available with fully-adaptive dampening. The system adapts by sensing the road and adjusting for driver behavior, automatically softening for more pronounced road inputs and firming for aggressive driving.
Tesla said it is also re-introducing a lower entry price for Model S and Model X by bringing back its Standard Range option.
