Tesla Model S – The model range at Tesla is on the move. New offers are added, other options are canceled. As of September 24, 2017, Tesla will remove the last remaining model S with the classic rear-wheel drive from its range. The changes will first affect the US offer but will be passed on to other markets. The new entry-level model is the S 75D with all-wheel drive. With the portfolio adjustment, Tesla wants to create more distance between the Tesla Model S and the upcoming Model 3, which will only be available with rear-wheel drive. An all-wheel-drive variant will not be added until 2018.
New Tesla Model S entry prices from August 2017
Only in August Tesla had lowered prices. After a price-list change, the Tesla Model Soffer started at 69,970 Euro (83,620 dollars) for the 75th, which will no longer be available. The Model S 75D costs 75.179 Euro (89,845 dollars); the Model S 100D is available from 107.320 Euro (128,257 dollars) and the Model S P100D from 146.670 Euro (175,28 dollars).

Tesla already includes the environmental bonus on its website and gives 2,000 Euro (2,390 dollars) lower prices.
Model S and Model X models in a 100D version without “performance” additions
Tesla had restructured its range of models in March 2017 and included its Model S and Model X models in a 100D version without “performance” additions in its price lists. The 60’s version of the Model S was deleted. The new 100D versions of Model S and Model X speed up slower (0-100 km/h or 0-62 mph: 4.4 seconds for Model S, 5.0 seconds for Model X). But it cost much less and offer more range. According to NEDC data, the range in the Model S will increase from 613 to 632 kilometers (380 mph to 392 miles) compared to the performance version. While the range of the Model X will climb from 542 to 565 kilometers (336 to 351 miles).
The cost reduction is much more pronounced. The Tesla Model S is offered without performance supplement at prices from 106,720 Euros – 42,900 Euros cheaper than the performance model. The Model X 100D starts at 116,700 euros – 36,400 euros under the performance variant. According to the Tesla website, delivery of the 100D versions begins in Germany in April (Model S) and May (Model X).
Model S 60 not applicable
Due to declining demand, Tesla had already adjusted the model range of the Model S in spring and removed the primary models 60 and 60 D from the product line. So, Tesla reported that the majority of customers had opted for the 75 kWh version with a higher range. Each 60 kWh Model S can also be upgraded to a 75 kWh model via an “Over the Air” update.
