Tesla, the renowned electric car manufacturer, has introduced more affordable options for its flagship Model S and Model X vehicles, aiming to make electric mobility accessible to a wider audience. By reintroducing the “standard range” trim level, Tesla has reduced the price and electric vehicle (EV) range, appealing to shoppers who prioritize affordability.
With a $10,000 price reduction, the Model S now starts at $78,490, offering a range of 320 miles, while the Model X starts at $88,490, providing a range of 269 miles. This significant decrease in both price and range sets these new variants apart from the previous extended-range options.
Tesla’s decision to bring back the standard range trim demonstrates its commitment to offering more affordable choices to a broader customer base. The weight of the new standard range trim is the same as the extended range option, indicating a shared battery pack. The range is limited through software, but Tesla may offer the option to unlock additional range after purchase for an additional fee.
This move is part of Tesla’s ongoing efforts to adapt to market demands and prioritize affordability. It marks the first time Tesla has simultaneously reduced both the price and range to offer vehicles at a lower price point. By making electric vehicles more accessible, Tesla is shaping the future of sustainable transportation.
