Lately, Tesla cars started worse to sell, but the company quickly found a way to attract the attention of buyers. As expected, it updated the cars Tesla Model S and Model X, to equip them with synchronous motors with permanent magnets, a new transmission and cooling systems, and lubrication. The upgrade really went to work — electric vehicles has noticeably increased the power reserve on a single charge, and this despite the fact that the volume of the batteries remained at the same level.
The updated vehicles can travel on a single charge 10% more than before: a maximum cruising range of the Tesla Model S now is 595 miles, and the Tesla Model X — 523 kilometers. These indicators are relevant for the “average” versions of the Long Range, but in addition it has improved the Performance option and the “standard” version of the car, which was stopped in 2018, but resumed in 2019.
Prices updated Tesla Model S:
- Standart — from 68 $ 750;
- Long Range — from 78 750 dollars;
- Performance — from 89 $ 750.
Prices updated Tesla Model X:
- Standart — from 73 950$;
- Long Range — from 83 950 dollars;
- Perfomance — from 94 950 dollars.
Due to the increased reserve, the volume of batteries has not changed and amounts to 100 kilowatt-hours. But, according to the manufacturer, they are charged as much as 50% faster — the main thing is to use a charging station Supercharger v3.
The new transmission also affects the acceleration of the car: standard Tesla Model S accelerates to 100 km/h in 4 seconds and modification of Long Range — 3.7 seconds. For the same modifications, Tesla Model X, the figures are 4.6 and 4.4 seconds, respectively.
Also of note is a new software that adapts the air suspension under driving conditions. For example, to reduce air resistance and decrease speed, the system can lower the suspension but with the aggressive drive to increase greater responsiveness.
Owners of upgraded cars for another surprise — a Ludicrous mode Mode to increase the power of electric motors. For everyone else it’s worth an extra $ 20,000, but buyers of new Tesla Model S and Model X will get for free.
