The refreshed version will get several miles less than the 412 miles (EPA) initially anticipated.

The Tesla Model S Long Range Plus AWD previously received an official EPA range of 402 miles (647 km) in 2020. It was the first and only series-produced electric car on the market with over 400 miles of range.

The new, refreshed version (Long Range AWD) was expected to get an even higher EPA range - 412 miles (663 km) - but Tesla has changed it to 405 miles (652 km) - 7 miles (or 1.7%) less than initially anticipated. We guess that the adjustment is a result of an in-depth test of the final version. After all, the range is one of Tesla's top priorities.

The 405-mile result applies only for the car with 19" wheels. If you opt for 21" inch wheels, then the range will be reduced by 30 miles (7.4%) to 375 miles (603 km).

In the case of the top-of-the-line Tesla Model S Plaid, the range is 390 miles (628 km) with 19" wheels or 348 miles (560 km) with 21" wheels. The difference between 21" and 19" is 42 miles (10.8%).

Since the Plaid+ version with an anticipated range of 520 miles (837 km) was canceled, then the Tesla Model S Long Range AWD remains the only 400-mile car on the market, although a few more are coming [looks at Lucid].
