Up Next New 2018 Buick Enclave expected at the New York Auto Show
Not everybody is interested in an electric car's performance. For some, range is more important, which is why Tesla just introduced its longest-range EV yet.
Tesla added 100D variants of the Model S and Model X to its website recently, Electrek reports.
These vehicles lack the performance-oriented "P" designation, which means their range goes up a bit. Instead of the P100D's 315-mile range, the P-free Model S sports a range of 335 miles. As for the Model X, the range bump is less appreciable -- the 100D only boosts range from 289 miles to 295.
Removing the performance credential also confers a second benefit: a lower price tag. Whereas the Model S P100D costs $137,800 before any incentives according to Tesla's site, the 100D brings the price down to $92,500 at the time this was written. The Model X P100D goes for $138,800, while the 100D commands just $98,500.
In terms of performance, the Model S 100D maintains the 90D's same zero-to-60 time of 4.2 seconds, which is still plenty commendable. Since the Model X is a bit heavier, the 90D and 100D sport a zero-to-60 time of 4.8 seconds.
Don't worry, it's still got Ludicrous mode.by Emme Hall
Update, 4:43 p.m. ET: Made adjustments to base prices for Model X 100D and Model S 100D, because the default options on Tesla's site include a more expensive interior.
