Tesla to use 75kWh battery on the Model S

Tesla to use 75kWh battery on the Model S

A spokesperson for Tesla has confirmed that the company will introduce a 75kWh battery pack on the Tesla Model S line up. However, details regarding a specific timeline has not been divulged yet.

Tesla currently uses a 70 and 90kWh battery on the cars that are presently on sale, and the 75kWh battery pack version will serve as a mid-variant on the model range. Interestingly, the 75kWh battery saw its way into the Model X last month, and at that time, no information was released about it being considered for the Model S.

The reason for this upgrade could be a few. While the present 70kWh battery runs the RWD and AWD for 376km and 386km on one charge, what a 5kWh increase the 75kWh battery brings to the table is an extra 25km on both drives for approximately USD 3,000 (Rs 2 lakh), over the 70kWh version. So in addition to the driving range factor, the car maker could also be plotting a way to sell up stock of their 70kWh packs that may already be in their possession.
