If you’ve been meaning to purchase a Tesla Model S sedan but have been holding off because it’s quite expensive then you might want to consider a couple of new options that the company has launched today. Tesla has launched cheaper Model S options today which start at $66,000. It has reintroduced the base Model S with 60 kWh battery, the model actually has a 75 kWh battery pack that’s limited by software to 60 kWh.
This option brings down the Model S price to $66,000 from $70,000 in the United States. Given the smaller battery capacity, the Model S 60 is going to offer a range of 210 miles on a single charge.
Customers have the option to get the full 75 kWh battery capacity unlocked by paying an additional $8,500 before delivery or $9,000 after delivery, the range of the 75 kWh configuration is increased to 249 miles.
Tesla did offer a Model S configuration with 60 kWh battery pack in the past but it was discontinued for the 70 kWh battery pack last year. This model is now back and Tesla says that it’s exactly the same car, the very same car that can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds.
Customers who want even more range and performance can go for the Model S 60D which offers all-wheel drive. Both new configurations come with active safety features and Autopilot.
