Tesla To Improve Range Of Existing Models: 700 Km (435 Miles)

Some models under development will offer 1,000 km (621 miles) of range.

According to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, the company will introduce improved versions of existing models that will have around 700 km (435 Miles) of range.

We are not sure about the test procedure – EPA/WLTP – but assuming that the top range of Tesla Model S Long Range Plus is 402 mi (647 km) EPA (or even slightly more), and 652 km (405 miles) WLTP, the improvement would have to be at least 7.4-8.2%.

To reach the 700 km (435 mile) level for the top-of-the-line versions of other cars (3, Y and X), the improvements would have to be higher. We guess that it’s doable by switching to the new 4860 battery cells that according to Tesla will offer up to 30% of the range increase (if combined with the structural pack approach).

Some of the new models will get even more range right from the start.

“We even have some models under development that can do 1,000 kilometers.”

Roughly 620 km (997.6 km) is the target for the Tesla Roadster. The Tesla Model S Plaid will likely be rated at 520 miles (837 km) EPA / 840 km WLTP (522 miles). 1,000 km to be achievable also by the Tesla Semi.
