Tesla Model S manages 647 km range

Tesla Model S manages 647 km range”

Musk also pointed out that all the Model S cars made since late-January have a range of 402 miles (647 km).

Tesla has secured another achievement by becoming the first electric vehicle manufacturer to offer an EV that provides over 643 km (400 miles) of range.

The car's regenerative braking system has also been tweaked to incorporate a new "Hold" feature that blends the motor's regenerative braking with physical brakes to bring it to a stop when easing off the accelerator pedal.

Tesla has continued to refine its Model S since the battery-electric sedan first arrived in 2012.

Besides boasting off-road capability and novel quad-motor drive systems, the Rivians have made waves largely due to their promised 400-mile ranges and claimed prices (apparently for those 400-mile-range models) of around $70,000.

Tesla Increases Model S Range to 402 Miles

Tesla says the 2020 Model S Long Range's rating of 402 miles is a 20-percent increase when compared to the 2019 Tesla Model S 100D.

Compared to the 2019 version of the same vehicle, there has been an improvement of almost 20% in claimed range. Well, the debate moves to value-the 402-mile Tesla Model S Long Range Plus starts at $74,990 before any applicable rebates are applied.

The latest aero wheels are better at reducing aerodynamic drag than the units on the previous Long Range Model S, also adding two percent to overall range. A new aero wheel design alone adds boosts range by another 2%. Range anxiety, or the fear of running out of battery capacity in an electric vehicle before reaching your destination, could be overcome with a threshold of at least 200 miles, many experts predicted at the time.

At this point, the only carmaker that looks close to beating Tesla's EPA range record is the Lucid Air. Lucid CEO Rawlinson-who, perhaps not so coincidentally was the original Model S chief engineer-has claimed that the Air will be able to accomplish not just an EPA range of more than 400 miles but 400 miles at true highway speeds. Less than a decade ago, the launch of the 265-mile Model S broke the range-anxiety barrier.
