    Hi All:

    Tesla sent this out on Friday…

    2017 Tesla Model S


    One year ago, we introduced the Model S 60 kWh battery as a more affordable option to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles. However, most customers ended up buying an equivalent to the Model S 75 kWh. To simplify the ordering process for our customers, we will be removing the 60 kWh option from our lineup.

    Customers who still want the opportunity to own a 60 kWh Model S will have until April 16, 2017 to place their order. Any 60 kWh Model S will have the ability to upgrade their battery to 75 kWh via an over the air update.

    Model Pricing and EPA all-electric Range (AER)

    60 - $71,300 219 Mile range
    60D - $76,300 225 Mile range

    75 - $77,800 265 Mile range
    75D - $82,800 275 Mile range

    The Model S was originally advertised as a sub-$50k car (after the $7500 tax credit). That $57,400 price never actually materialized, .. and now (next month) the lowest price S you can get is $77,800.

    If we apply the same 35.5% "price creep" to the $35,000 model 3,.. then that car will end up carrying a $47,400 base price.

    /On the bright side, ... even after the tax credits dry up, Tesla will have finally delivered on it's Sub $50k price promise.

  3. Ummmm,
    I'm guessing it's uping usable capacity, not an over the air battery swap
