2017 Tesla Model S: Losing Many Buyers
Tesla has recently decided on discontinuing the P90D variant for the Model S and Model X, according to Electrek.
With the ceasing of the P90D, the P100D models becomes the high-performance vehicles in Tesla’s lineup, by default.
This would develop a $42,500 difference between the Model S 90D and the P100D.
Tesla would probably fill the void with non-P variants equipped with its new 100-kWh battery pack.
The electric sedan would most likely have a range of between 294 and 315 miles per charge and expected to reach a 0-60 mph in under four seconds.
However, with the P90D option not being around anymore, Tesla would, indirectly, be turning away more buyers who cannot afford to fork out more cash for the P100D model.
