Tesla simplifies UK Model S line-up

The new Model S line-up will include two battery capacity options, 70kWh and 90kWh, the latter had been introduced as a £2,500 upgrade on 85kWh versions last year and is only offered with dual-motor four-wheel drive.

With the 90kWh battery, the Model S is available as the 90D, priced at £69,660, which offers a 340-mile range on the NEDC, and the high performance P90D at £87,280, which reaches 60mph in 3.1 seconds from rest.

The ‘Ludicrous Mode’ option for the P90D is still available, priced at £8,700, which reduces the 60mph sprint time to 2.8 seconds as a result of an upgraded smart fuse made of Inconel super-alloy.

At the entry point of the range, the £53,980 70kWh with is the only two-wheel drive Model S, travelling 275 miles between charges. There is also a 70D dual-motor version at £58,380, which offers a 275-mile range.

All prices are on the road, but do not include the Plug-in Car Grant. As a fully electric car, the Model S qualifies for the new £4,500 grant and is not subject to the £60,000 recommended retail price cap.
