As we predicted this morning, Tesla released new options for the Model S today. The company updated its only design studio to include a new base Model S by bringing back the 60 kWh battery pack option, but in a 75 kWh battery pack software-limited to 60 kWh.

The new battery option brings the Model S base price down to $66,000 from $70,000 in the US. The vehicle offers an estimated EPA-rated range of 210 miles on a single charge – up to 249 miles with the full 75 kWh capacity, which is available for $8,500 when configuring or $9,000 if updated after delivery. more…

Or look at it the other way, can you imagine how much margin they might make out of a 75 when the same hardware is available for 9k less. Either way, I think they are heading in the right direction to make their cars and technology available to a wider audience.
