    Tesla releases new Model S 100D with 335 miles of range – longest range EV in the world yet

    [​IMG]

    We knew it was coming for a while now. Ever since Tesla introduced the P100D battery back for the Model S and X, but the automaker said at the time that it wanted to focus on making the performance version of the pack and that the non-performance would follow later.

    That is apparently today since Tesla quietly updated its online design studio early this morning and both the 100D version is available for both the Model S and X. more…

    Edited: had just posted this on a new thread elsewhere than saw that Elektrek and MikeBot had pressed the post button at the exact same time so moved this complementary article from Gene @ Teslarati here! ;)

    While this interesting news of course currently concerns only Model S and X, it marks a step further in range offering which one can reasonably assume could be available later in Model ≡... Quite extraordinary too that it comes for a reasonable price difference... interested buyers could get a base Model ≡ in addition instead, if they don't need ultra fast performance!! :)

    Can someone explain the difference between Performance and non-Performance? Not impact but software and/or hardware differences.

    Sure. Specifically talking about the S
    • Performance actually has a larger rear motor. Non-performance has the same motors front & rear. Take a look at the "Electric All-Wheel Drive" section on this page. Click between the "Dual Motor" button and the "P100D" button to see the difference.
    • Performance batteries have electronic fuses and higher-energy contacts as described here by Elon.
    I assume that the software is identical across all cars - features are activated/deactivated depending on what hardware the car has and what upgrades the owner has purchased.

    Thanks, Garsh. As much as driving a rocket is fun, I think the money saved by buying a standard dual-drive is preferable for my Model 3.

    This really excites me as I really want to maximize battery size for the maximum range but don't want to pay for peformance mode. Hopefully the price difference for the Model 3 will be structured in the same way.

    one question, this is with the old batteries right, not these new battery format they just started making? would this mean, if new batteries have higher density, in a year or two we would have similar size pack with much higher mileage?

    Yes but not in a year or two. Tesla has been improving range and performance by improving the cooling, electronics and number in a pack. The new cells are still an unknown quantity but a reasonable guess is 40 % better energy density and thus more power in the same area. The first model 3 will roll off the line with this advance and the battery pack for it might be made by may 2017.

    On the famous topic of NEDC vs. EPA range, intrigued to receive today an email from T≡SLA about this new version which announces an NEDC range of 632 kms... Considering the EPA quotes range is 335 miles (= 536 kms), this means close to 85% of NEDC... Thought the ratio was larger, or in any case, T≡SLA is definitively not overquoting the range on the NEDC range, contrary to the Europeans it seems... (cf. 600 kms for VW ID or Daimler EQ with a smaller battery?)... Intriguing...
