Tesla Model S & X 100D Deliveries Now Underway In Select States

1 month ago by Eric Loveday 9

Tesla Model S 100D

Through a few independent sources, we’ve been able to confirm that deliveries of the two longest range Teslas are no underway in some states.

Two months ago, Tesla announced the opening of ordering for the Model S 100D (EPA estimated range of 335 miles) and the Model X 100D (EPA estimated range of 295 miles).

Order were placed. Deliveries dates were announced and then a hold pattern set in. It seems there was some EPA-related hold-up on both the Model S 100D and Model X 100D, but that hold got released in some states just last week, which should help Tesla ‘end of quarter’ push to get cars delivered in the US.

We can now report that some buyers have taken delivery of the S 100D and X 100D. Most states appear to still be in a hold pattern until March 28 or so, but deliveries of these two long-range Tesla are indeed occurring now.

Here’s a brief write up from one of the first Model S 100D owners on the Tesla Motors Club forum:

“Just picked up my S100D. The first one Kansas City had delivered they said. I let it charge almost all the way up while doing the orientation. It had like 5 or 10 minutes left. It charged to 344 miles. I don’t know if it would have ticked one more mile or not.”

And here’s an emphatic response from one of the early Model X 100D owners:

“Just picked up our MX100D! Fantastic car! Great delivery experience!!”

“We charged our X100D for the first time last night… 301 miles at 100%charge!!”

    So does that make Tesla the first mass produced, publicly available EV to hit the 300+ range?

    Or was there someone else?

      The P100D is rated at 315

    Drool worthy car and CUV. The S 100D would be my pick

    Dear Tesla….
    Please build a “Model à trois” with a 63KWh pack with 200 mile range that does not “Taper” when I Super Charge.

    I will be willing to pay a little extra for that feature.

    Thank you.
    😛

      agreed Trollnon,

      It would be nice to get better than 4-5 MPH charging speeds. 80 miles in 20 minutes=2 ice cream cones= oink!

    Do you suppose these are using the new battery cells?

  5. Very well, it shows what 100 kWh can do, but honestly, I’m glad we have the S 60, which perfectly fits our driving routine and saved us a lot of money. How often do you really need that much range if not being a commuter?

  6. John Brophy says:

    I’m glad I have the S 60 too(just 1 month ago). I would only upgrade the battery in the future when the 100 D gets the higher capacity, efficiency and lower price.
    I bought this as an investment for my future driving. As I get older the S will take over the safety for me.(self-driving)
