Video Of One Of The First Tesla Model S 100D Deliveries

Tesla Model S 100D

They do exist…

Here’s video showing delivery of one of the very first Tesla Model S 100D electric sedans.

The Model S 100D is the longest-range electric production car on sale in the U.S. with an EPA-estimated range of 335 miles

Announced some two months ago, the Model S 100D starts at $92,500. It zips from 0 to 60 MPH in just 4.2 seconds and maxes out at a top speed of 155 MPH.

As we explained just a couple of days ago, deliveries of the Model S and X 100D had just begun in some states following the release of an EPA hold. There’s still a wait though in other states where the hold isn’t expected to be released until March 28.

If you prefer the X over the S, the 100D version of the electric SUV has an EPA-estimated range of 295 miles and a starting price of $98,500.

    Can someone explain the EPA hold for a EV?

    1. ffbj says:

      Maybe because EPA does the calculations for MPGe.

    2. Nix says:

      The EPA still has to approve the Monroney sticker (window sticker) on new cars before they can go on sale, no matter what the drivetrain is.

      The holdup appears to have been just due to a change in EPA leadership taking time to get up to speed.

    The Model S 100D is the longest-range electric production car on sale in the U.S. with an estimated range of 539 kilometers.

      You should have posted the range in Freedom Units™

      1. Luis says:

        That is SI units, French for system international- metric system is much easier to use. Most of the world useses it. If you know both, you will know what I mean.

    2. MMercury says:

      What would the range estimate be if the MS 100D used NEDC numbers. Pretty impressive I would imagine.

    Pure stupidity. EPA has no need to test electric cars if the latter model has the same electric motor. You get exact same range from 1kwh if the battery is 60kwh or 100kwh, you can optionally do just a simple math for tiny weight increase which is not every going to be consonant due to temperature in drivetrain parts from battery to wheels and road surface… Calculate model s mpg per khw, then you have a guide for any battery size, unless drastic change in weight or air drag happens. Gasoline cars always change specs on drivetrain to make them greener, but still 10 minutes on closed garage with a Civic and you die… EPA can keep bringing numbers for new cars but it means very little for electric.
