Official EPA Ratings For Refreshed Tesla Model S – 90D Range Is 303.2 Miles Highway
When Tesla unveiled the refreshed Model S, aside from the new looks, what really caught our attention was the significantly improved range figures for the freshened Model S 90D. But it wasn’t until we accessed the EPA’s secret vault of detailed ratings that we came across the real headline grabber…The refreshed Tesla Model S 90D goes 303.2 miles on the highway on a single charge, a remarkable achievement that’s largely due to its aerodynamics.
The new 90D was listed by Tesla at 294 miles of range, versus the old 270-mile EPA rating (which was actually based on the 85 kWh car – the 90 kWh version was not originally re-tested/certified for greater range via increased battery capacity) and Tesla’s previous 288-mile estimate.
Meanwhile, the P90D version of the refreshed Model S was listed at 270 miles, versus the old 253-mile EPA rating, which was consistent with Tesla’s own earlier estimate.
Below is a look at the official EPA figures (with city/highway) for the 90D and P90D versions of the refreshed Model S.
As you can see in the graphic above, the refreshed Model S 90D now is rated to travel more than 300 miles on the highway on a single charge,
Here’s a look at the figures for the refreshed and old versions of the 90D and P90D (note: 2016 P90D is still incorrectly rated at 253 miles of range in image below):
