As was earlier speculated, the Tesla Model S 100D (the P100D minus the "Performance" bit) possesses a single-charge range of well over 300 miles, something that we now know for sure following the company updating its online design studio to feature the new option.

New Tesla Model S 100D Option Features 335-Mile Range

As was earlier speculated, the Tesla Model S 100D (the P100D minus the “Performance” bit) possesses a single-charge range of well over 300 miles, something that we now know for sure following the company updating its online design studio to feature the new option.

As was earlier speculated, the Tesla Model S 100D (the P100D minus the “Performance” bit) possesses a single-charge range of well over 300 miles, something that we now know for sure following the company updating its online design studio to feature the new option.

The exact EPA-rated range of the Tesla Model S 100D is apparently 335 miles per full charge — roughly 20 miles more than the EPA-rated range for the Model S P100D. The new option will apparently “only” run you $3,000 more than the 90D will.

In addition, Tesla has introduced a Model X 100D variant — which apparently possesses around 6 miles of range more than the Model X P100D, thanks to the slightly reduced performance.

Autoblog provides more:

[F]orgoing the extra performance will save you $39,500 in the sedan, and $37,000 in the SUV. In fact, the 100D models are just $3,000 more than the 90D. They also share the 90D’s 0–60 times of 4.2 seconds in the S, and 4.8 seconds in the X, which is plenty quick. Admit it, there was no good reason you needed to be able to do 0–60 mph in under three seconds.

Interestingly enough, the 90D is still available, but don’t be surprised if Tesla soon removes it from its website just as quietly as it added the new longest-range consumer EV in the entire world. Apart from the extra 10 kWh of battery capacity, the 90D and 100D offer the same standard equipment. That includes the latest in Tesla’s autonomous driving hardware, which will only make the car smarter with future software updates.

So, to put the news in slightly different wording, you can now buy a Model S 100D or Model X 100D for $3,000 more than a Model S 90D or Model X 90D, and in return get considerably better range (~41 miles more for the Model S 100D).
