Tesla 100D Model S and 100D Model X quietly introduced

by Todd Haselton | January 20, 2017January 20, 2017 10:50 am PDT

Tesla quietly introduced a new 100D Model S and a 100D Model X on its site on Friday. Buyers can configure the car with the new option, which extends the range to 295 miles on the Model X and 335 miles on the Model S, but the option is a little hidden. On the design page, you’ll first need to select the Model S 90D model before seeing the upgrade to the 100D.

Keep in mind this is different than the existing P100D options, which puts emphasis on performance but doesn’t have as long of a promised range. The P100D Model S offers a range of 315 miles, for example, while the P100D Model X of 289 miles (just six miles shy of the 100D, really.) The 100D Model S starts at $98,300, down from $137,800 for the P100D and up from the $95,300 you’d pay for the 90D. The 100D Model X starts at $90,100, down from $127,100 for the P100D Model X and up from the $87,100 you’d pay for the 90D Model X.

100D Model S and 100D Model X available now

My guess is that  Tesla is going to ditch the 90D model of both cars, since there’s really no reason for it to co-exist with the 100D of the Model S and Model X. Plus, Tesla still has its 75D models for folks who want to save as much money as possible. You can see the configuration options on Tesla’s site now.
