Detailed EPA Range Rating For All Versions Of Tesla Model X – Minus P100DL

SEP 26 2016 BY ERIC LOVEDAY 18

With the latest update to the Environmental Protection Agency’s internal database, we now find detailed range ratings for all versions (excluding P100DL) of the Tesla Model X. We’re not sure why the top-level X is excluded from the list, but at least we get our first look at the lowest-level model in regards to its range breakdown.

From left to right in the chart below is the city / highway / combined EPA range rating for the Model X is 60D, 75D, 90D and P90D variations.

Of note is that the 60D Model X is the only variation with less than 200 miles (196.5) of city range. All of the only variants have substantially more city range. So, if you’re a city driver, perhaps the 60D isn’t the right choice for you.

Just for comparative purposes, here’s the detailed range rating for the Chevrolet Bolt (note: the Bolt beat all 4 of the listed versions of the Model X in city range, thought it’s outdone by all but the 60D on the highway):

I like the X. My Model S is nice but your down on the floor seating wise. The X is taller and the seat is higher off the floor.

Can’t wait for the plain 100 version. It should get around 300+ miles range.

Love the S but prefer our X because of automatic front doors, falcon wing doors, comfortable seats, easier to get in and out, three rows of seats with 6 seats total, more cup holders and USB ports for all rows, large windshield allows more enjoying the sceneries, just feels like a next generation car.

How’s the reliability been with the X? How does it compare with the S?

Model S has been built for a lot more years, they just started making the X in numbers this year so fit and finish on the S are naturally more refined. If you compare the 2013 model S to the 2014 you will also see a huge difference. But I feel blessed I can drive the X now instead of waiting a few years for refinement, 6000 miles since May and no real reliability issues on the X, but got some improvements in terms of wind noise done, for free.

Anyone notice in the spreadsheet that the 60KWh pack charges at the same time and rate as the 75KWh and 90KWh packs?

😛

“Anyone notice in the spreadsheet that the 60KWh pack charges at the same time and rate as the 75KWh and 90KWh packs?”

The rate is note the same. The bigger batteries charge at a higher rate-MPH.

On the supercharger maybe but not when home charging which those rates are about.

They all say….
“with 80A dual charger option”

If this is an official EPA something, it’s officially a wrong EPA something…..lol

…its an official EPA thing

I was wondering the same thing. Do smaller battery Teslas have lower power on-board chargers? If they’re all 80A rating for higher power, then it seems smaller battery Tesla would be wasting energy, or does it have taper?

They all taper as they reach battery capacity. The facelifted “60” does less so, only because it’s actually a 75kwh.

Tesla doesn’t provide 80A onboard charging. That’s ~20kw. The default had been 10kw (~40A at 240v). Now, its up to 46, I think. 80A was the dual charger option. Much more popular when their weren’t Superchargers and Tesla folk were out there making it to each other’s homes, where some were nice enough to have the 80A EVSE’s ready to plumb into those dual-chargers (~60 miles per hr).

48A now with a 72A option. I guess these are 2 and 3 charger modules respectively.

The big “issue”, that got hotter here at the end of Q3, was discounts on the 75s. More for Model S, but it raises the same issues for X.

How much do you pay extra for a 75, when the 60 comes with a 75kwh battery, and can be daily charged to 100% of 60kwh? All Tesla’s are otherwise recommended to charge only to 89%-90% of their stated range (for the sake of the battery). Range charging should be reserved for long trips, and this is the “60”s give-up.

The EPA numbers in both S and X show the lowest 60D providing 84% of its respective 75’s available range, not 89%. While some are equating a 60D to a 75D for daily duty, it isn’t quite the same. Maybe someone with a 75 can chime in, but I believe daily range would be higher by that missing 5% or ~12 miles. Something like ~230 versus the stated 218.

Confirmed – “232” “234” from this thread:

Woah, Bolt beats the 75D.

It beats all the listed Xs on city range. Of course it’s a much much lighter vehicle. I wonder how much the new stronger regen in the Teslas will help around town?

The Bolt EV ties the Model X 75D on combined range at 238 miles.

However the base Model X 75D starts at $84,200 and the Bolt EV starts at $37,495.

The Model X seats up to seven, has BioMode air filtration, more legroom, more headroom, charges faster (yes, at home, not superchargers), has a supercharger network for cross country travel, titanium skid plates, DC charging, panoramic windshield, et al.

What does the Bolt have? If you want an apples to apples comparison, try the Model 3.
