Tesla is planning a larger long-range battery in new ‘100D’ versions
A Tesla ‘100D’ model might be closer than you think
Elon Musk just doesn’t want to stop. In a recent report by Engadget, Dutch regulators have approved 100D and P100D versions of both the Model S and Model X.
The ‘100D’ versions means that the Model S and Model X will soon be featuring a 100kWh battery. With this new power supply, the Model X could get a monstrous 380 miles on a single charge. For comparison, the 90D versions manages 294 miles. Given the positive difference, this change will be very welcomed. At the same time, the 100D version of Model X would probably get about 300 miles on a single charge, given that it’s a SUV.
There’s currently no word on when the new versions will be up for grabs. It will surely feature a higher price tag than the current versions, given that the larger size of the battery costs more. Regardless of the price-point, this change will be a huge step forward for all-electric vehicles. Such progression in technology marks the beginning to the day when we will be able to drive long distances without worrying about running out of charge.
