This weeks announcement of a 100 kWh Tesla Model S and Tesla Model X once against upset the apple-cart that is Tesla EV lineup.  To keep all the data and information straight, we have again put together some charts to simplify the whole thing.

It seems Tesla is really working hard on upgrading its products and bringing some new desirable improvements nearly every month

...either that, or Tesla is working really hard at perfecting the art of planned obsolescence in order continually re-sell consumers that are eager to own the very best.  Hopefully the latter isn't the case.

Tesla now has the broadest lineup (by far) of 12 different battery/powertrain trim levels for just two offerings.

Because the P100D S/X are now the only models with Ludicrous Mode on sale, there is now high price step up between the P100D and P90D.

The Model S P100D (Ludicrous) will go 315 miles (507 km) according to est. EPA range, accelerating 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds. That's over 100 miles more than base S 60, and acceleration takes less than half the time than the S 60.

At the same time, the Model X P100D (Ludicrous) is rated at 289 miles (542 km) according to est. EPA range, and as first SUV will do 0-60 mph in less than 3 seconds - 2.9 seconds.
