The electric, all-wheel drive Model S P100D has four doors, seats up to five adults and two children and has great cargo capacity. The 100kWh battery increases the range to an estimated 315 miles on the EPA cycle and 613km on the EU cycle. This makes it the first to go beyond 300 miles and the longest range production electric vehicle to date. 

This larger battery pack is also available on the Model X, which will make it the fastest SUV worldwide. Model X P100D with Ludicrous mode accelerates to 60mph in 2.9 seconds and travels up to 289 miles EPA estimated and 542km EU, on a single charge. 

Elon Musk, chief executive of Tesla Motors, hailed the new battery as a ‘profound milestone’ and said that a Tesla driver can now travel from San Francisco to Los Angeles in temperate weather without recharging. 

According to the Tesla website, ‘customers who have ordered a P90D Ludicrous, but not taken delivery, can upgrade to the 100kWh pack for $10,000. Existing P90D Ludicrous owners can also upgrade, but for $20,000 as their used 90kWh pack will have to be recycled’.
