Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that “All Model S cars made since late January have a 402-mile range.” Tesla is widely known for its powerful electric powertrains. It has got an EPA-rated range of 402 miles. The Model S Long Range Plus has a starting price of $74,990 following a price reduction last month.
“Tesla has updated the 2020 Model S Long Range Plus vehicle making several changes to the vehicle from the one EPA previously tested. EPA approved the new label value based on a review of the testing protocols and data submitted by Tesla and found it was complete and accurate,” the agency said.
Tesla had improvements in the weight reductions in the components like the car’s battery pack, more aerodynamic wheels, and using more efficient drive units. The improvements were a 20% increase in the range when compared to a 2019 model S 100D with the same battery pack design.
Tesla to launch a new low-cost and long-life battery
Tesla is also planning to launch a new low-cost and long-life battery in its Model 3 sedan in China in one to two years. It is expected to bring down the battery cost, once the battery cost reduces automatically the cost of electric vehicles will reduce. This battery will allow having the second and third lives in the electric power grid.
Tesla chief executive Elon Musk has been teasing to reveal significant advances in battery technology during a “Battery Day” in late May.
The new “million-mile” battery at the centre of Tesla’s strategy was jointly developed with China’s Contemporary Amperex Technology Ltd (CATL) and deploys technology developed by Tesla in collaboration with a team of academic battery experts recruited by Musk.
