The new Model S Long Range Plus will have an incredible range of 405 miles WLTP and the Model X Long Range Plus will have an endurance of 348 miles. The Long Range Plus represents an increase in range through both iterative and transformational changes in core hardware and system architecture. According to the company, while each of these changes are relatively small in individual impact, they enable significant gains in efficiency and range when combined.
Tesla has also brought out a notable update on the Model 3 which is the introduction of the Model Y heat pump HVAC system. According to the company this new improvement causes the Model 3 to beat its own record as the world’s most efficient mass-production car. The Model 3 will also have some cosmetic changes, including no chrome on the outside, and updated wheels across the range. The boot release will be powered. The interior will have a matte rather than gloss finish, with redesigned central console including dual smartphone charging mats, two more USB-C ports, and a USB-A port in the glove compartment for Sentry Mode storage.
Tesla pricing remains the same, and it's not cheap as the Model 3 ranges from £40,490 to £56,490 and the Model S Long Range Plus will start from £74,980 with the Performance version from £89,980. The Model X isn the most expensive from the lineup as the Long Range Plus will start from £82,980 and the performance from £97,980.
