Tesla vehicles already travel farther on a single charge than any other production EV on the market. But that wasn’t enough for the California-based automaker.
The company has announced that it’s updating the Model S and Model X, allowing them to travel unprecedented distances without needing to recharge, beating its own record for the longest-range production EVs on the road. in addition, Tesla has accomplished this without increasing the cars’ battery size, further improving efficiency.
Both models will now come with an all-new drivetrain design that increases each vehicle’s range substantially, achieving a landmark 370 miles and 325 miles on the EPA cycle for Model S and Model X Long Range. Using the same 100 kWh battery pack, these design and architecture updates will allow drivers to travel farther than ever before, charging less frequently and getting more range out of every dollar spent on charging.
Speaking of charging, the Model S and Model X are now capable of achieving 200 kW on V3 Superchargers and 145 kW on V2 Superchargers. Together, these improvements enable customers to recharge 50% faster.
Tesla is also introducing a brand-new adaptive suspension system for Model S and Model X, along with a few other improvements for the best range, acceleration, and ride comfort ever, plus a Ludicrous Mode upgrade.
