Tesla re-optimizes its Model X and Model S models.
As discovered by Electrek, the automaker has launched cheaper versions of its X and Model S models with a 100kWh battery pack, now you can not buy that 75kWh repeat.
The Model S is now sold for $ 85,000, and its range is limited by software to 498 kilometers. The Model X costs $ 88,000 with a range of 434 kilometers.
You can still buy the regular 100kWh versions of the Model X and the Model S, creating a greater range is achieved. These cars cost $ 8,000 more and are labeled "Extended Range" at the end of their model designation. They will be slightly cheaper than before.
The faster models previously referred to as Model S and Model X P100D is now the "Model S and X Performance" and costs $ 112,000 for the Model S and $ 117,000 for the Model X.  Tesla has also unbundled "Ludicrous Mode" from these performance models. They want this acceleration, which they need to increase by $ 20,000 for the upgrade.
These price changes come after CEO Elon Musk finished selling the cheapest versions of Model S and Model X in early January, both of which had a 75 kWh battery. Now Tesla manufactures only one battery type for model X and model S.
