This also means they have the shortest range, and, according to Tesla, "most customers ended up buying an equivalent to the Model S 75kWh," meaning they simply purchased an over-the-air-update for $9,500 to unlock that remaining 15-kWh. For its part, Tesla wants to "simplify the ordering process." The Model S 60 began at $68,000 while the 60D went for at least $73,000. The 75- kWh Model S, for comparison, begins at $74,500 for RWD and $79,500 for AWD. Tesla’s latest move really does make complete sense
, and looking back, we’re kind of surprised it launched the Model S 60 and 60D in the first place.
