Model S range-opener now starts at $118,600 BOCs for 75kWh Tesla

TESLA is pulling the plug on its current base level 60kWh battery variants, raising the barrier of entry to its all-electric Model S sedan range to $118,600 before on-road costs for its 75kWh battery version.

Reintroduced in June last year, order books for the outgoing 60 and 60D Model S variants – which are priced at $108,700 and $116,300 respectively – will be open until April 16.

According to the electric vehicle (EV) maker, “most customers ended up buying an equivalent to the Model S 75kWh”, which adds about another 80km of driving range over the 60 and 60D, and “any 60kWh Model S will have the ability to upgrade their battery to 75kWh via an over the air update”.

60 and 60D variants also have access to the Tesla’s self-driving Autopilot technology, as well as the option for enhanced Autopilot and full self-driving capability.

Other options available on the base Model S include air suspension, a premium upgrades package, a subzero weather package, improved sound system and high power charger capability.

All new Tesla Model S sedans will come with an annual credit allowance of 400kWh – which equates to around 1609km of range – for use at the brand’s Supercharger stations, which have now reached 11 in Australia linking the northern New South Wales town of Knockrow and Victoria’s capital city Melbourne.

Tesla will charge customers 35 cents for every kWh charged over the yearly allowance.

Model X SUVs are not affected by Tesla’s discontinuation of 60kWh versions as the crossover range kicks off with the 75kWh battery.
