Comparing a Base Tesla Model S to a Fully Loaded Model S Performance Plus Version; What’s the Price Difference?
True Tesla Model S fans know that there’s a substantial difference in both price and performance between a base (60 kWh, no options) Model S and a fully loaded Model S Performance (85 kWh) with the Performance Plus package.
Of course, you could head over to Tesla Motors’ website to configure a Model S any way you so desire, but the folks at Winding Road kindly did that for us. Well, sort of.
Winding Road hit the Tesla Model S configurator to figure out what the price difference is between the “cheapest” Model S and the decked-out, option-packed most expensive version of Tesla’s electric sedan.
According to Winding Road, the Model S is wonderfully easy to configure since all of the options and packages are described in detail and require simply ticking a box to add in.
There aren’t complex packages that must be combined with other options. In other words, it’s not tricky to configure a Model S exactly how you desire it.
Here’s Winding Roads’ example of the price breakdown for base versus loaded for the Model S:
BasePrice: $71,070 (Tesla Model S) + $0 (Destination) + $0 (Options) – $7500 (Federal Tax Credit) = $63,570LoadedPrice: $96,070 (Tesla Model S Performance) + $0 (Destination) + $23,100 (Options) – $7500 (Federal Tax Credit) = $111,670
