In electing to go dual-motor, all-wheel-drive, Tesla Motors has upped the range ante again.

The new mark to beat, officially established via EPA testing of the Model S 85D, is 270 miles of combined range.

The results of testing were posted to the EPA site just days ago, following the release of a software update that allows “sleep mode” for the dual motor Teslas.

This software update should roll out to 85D and P85D owners soon.

Official EPA test results are posted below.  Note the remarkable (285.3 Miles) of highway range for the 85D!

The range target for all those upcoming Tesla Killers now is 270 (combined) or more.
