Last month Tesla unveiled a number of updates to its Model S (which we reviewed here) line, giving the car a new front grille, new LED headlights, faster charging, and the air filtration system from the Model X. Yesterday they followed those updates with the introduction of two cheaper Model S variants – the Model S 60 and 60D, which include all of the above features as standard.
The new Model S 60 will deliver 400 kilometres of range, a top speed of 210 km/h and a 0-100km/h sprint of 5.8 seconds, starting at $100,800 (plus on-roads and taxes). The all-wheel-drive option adds additional range and performance, beginning at $108,300. All models come equipped with active safety features and Autopilot hardware.
To provide customers even more flexibility over time, Model S 60 and 60D owners may later choose to upgrade their vehicles to a 75kWh battery with a software update, should they want to add to their car’s battery capacity in the future. The 60 and 60D will also receive free over-the-air software updates that add functionality and continue to improve the driving experience for years to come.
The Model S 60 is already live on the Tesla website. You can check out their extensive pricing and options packages here.
