After Tesla Motors discontinued the 85 kWh battery pack version of the Model S and the 90 kWh single-motor version, we thought it might be useful for those in market for a Tesla to compare all the versions available.

Here is the Model S and Model X price, range and acceleration comparisons, which hopefully helps in understanding the differences.

There are now some 43 miles (EPA) difference between the Model S 70D and base Model S 90D.

The range differences between X and S aren’t that big – some 26 miles for 90D and just 16 miles in case of P90D (both in favor of the Model S).

    It would be kind of cool, if they reintroduced the P85, just as a regular 90, just 2-5k cheaper. At least in the Model S. They still build the Motor and the Inverter for the P90D and I would say a strong RWD car can be fun, too. But it should be a bit cheaper than the equally strong 90D.

    Bare bones 70D is value King, in both X or S.

    1. TomArt says:

      Yes; however, the 90Ds of each are very close in value; arguably, even better deals since there is more range (and by default, acceleration) for a relatively small difference in price per mile of range.

  4. James says:

    What I find amazing is you get so much more space and utility in the X for only $5,000 extra, as promised. Plus it almost has as much speed and range as the S. Given the S is the best selling luxury sedan in North America, I can imagine the X will outsell all luxury SUV combined, once it gets into full production.

      It is difficult to fathom that they have produced two such fabulous vehicles. I think it shows their commitment to making truly ground-breaking vehicles, while at the same time putting other car companies to shame.

        Agreed!
