Tesla Model S 75 To Return?

Automotive journalist Bozi Tatarevic has found something in the latest Tesla filings with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) — a listing for a single-motor Model S. The rear-wheel-drive-only model was Tesla’s least expensive vehicle for a while but was discontinued earlier this year. It may be available once again soon. Why? Speculation abounds.

According to Teslarati, the dual-motor Model 3 is scheduled to go into production later in 2018 at an expected price of around $70,000 with sport wheels, premium upgrade package, and enhanced autopilot — for the same price as an entry-level Model S 75. Perhaps Tesla wants to give buyers a choice — a fully loaded Model 3 or a base Model S for the same price. Your choice. For some, the extra room of the larger car may be more appealing than a full-tilt boogie version of the Model 3. (Though, note that headroom is better in the back of the Model 3 if you choose the glass roof.)
