New Tesla Battery

Tesla on Tuesday unveiled new versions of its Model S electric vehicle with a larger battery that makes it one of the fastest-accelerating production cars in the market today. Equipped with a 100 kWh battery, it’s said that the Model S P100D with Ludicrous mode will clock 0 to 60 miles per hour in 2.5 seconds, making it slower only than the LaFerrari and the Porsche 918 Spyder.
The company’s newest battery will also be available on the Model X SUV. Based on its tests, Tesla estimates that it both vehicles will have increased ranges, with the Model S getting 315 miles and the Model X going 289 miles.
It’s reported that the Model S P100D will start at $134,500, while the updated Model X will be around $135,500. Furthermore, initial production runs of the updated battery are said to be “limited” to 200 packs per week, meaning that it’ll be a while until Tesla is able to offer the enlarged batteries elsewhere.
Customers who have ordered the Model S P90D with Ludicrous mode, but who haven’t yet taken possession, can upgrade to the 100 kWh battery for $10,000. If you have received your vehicle, you can pay $20,000 for the updated battery, but will also need to recycle your used 90 kWh pack.
