Longest Range Electric Car = Tesla Model S 100D (335 Miles!)

Want to own the electric car with the longest range in America? Place your order today for a Tesla Model S 100D, the non-performance version of the Model S sedan with dual motors and the company’s largest battery — 100 kWh. The official numbers from the EPA are in and the Model S 100D range came in at 331.1 miles in city driving, alongside a highway range of 337.2 miles and a combined rating of 335 miles. MPGe ratings are impressive as well — 101 city, 102 highway, 102 combined.

The combined Model S 100D range is 20 miles more than the performance version of the car, the famed P100D that has set world records for acceleration, including the stunning 2.28 second run recorded by Motor Trend last month. Before the results from the EPA were available, Tesla announced that the 100D’s range would be 335 miles. Obviously, Tesla knows its products well. Deliveries of the Model S 100D began about 3 weeks ago.

Base price of the Model S 100D is $95,800 with the pre-selected upgraded interior or $92,500 without it. Both cars have a mandatory $1,200 transportation and documentary fee added to their list price. The 100D is not quite as quick as the performance version (it’s about 1.7 seconds slower to 60 mph), but at $30,000 less (for the least expensive version), it should be more than adequate for most drivers since it is still one of the fastest production cars in the world. Acceleration handily beats that of the Cadillac CT6 plug-in hybrid, for instance.

Coming competitors like the Lucid Air offer larger batteries — up to 130 kWh — but not all of that weight is carried as low as possible in the chassis as it is in Tesla products. Tesla says the 100 kWh battery is the biggest that will fit into the space available in either the Model S or Model X. As it is, the company had to do a complete redesign of the battery cooling system in order to add more battery cells to get to that 100 kWh figure, and Elon Musk says it is unlikely Tesla will offer larger batteries in the foreseeable future.
