Tesla Model S, Model X get a bump to almost 600 kilometres of range
Tesla has just updated its long-range Model S sedan and Model X SUV with even more range, growing ever closer to the fabled 400-mile EV.
While the battery itself remains the same, the latest over-the-air software update helped Tesla squeeze out just a few more electrons in order to get you closer to the next charging station. The Model S’ 100 kWh battery pack will now take you up to 370 miles (595 kilometres) on a charge, calculated using the EPA test cycle — a big improvement over the previous 335-mile (540-kilometre) rating.
According to Tesla, the improvements are the product of new drive-unit technological improvements, such as lubrication, cooling, bearings, and gear design in the motors, which boosts efficiency above 93 per cent.
