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.

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.
