The revised Model S will now manage 405 miles per charge in LR guise according to the automaker.

Tesla has reduced the range of the Long Range Model S, just days after the delivery event of the Plaid version. The new Long Range Model S was originally stated to have 412 miles of estimated EPA range, however this has since been reduced to 405 miles per charge.

The updated Long Range Model S starts at $79,990 and can go from 0-60 mph in just 3.1 seconds. It will be sold alongside the $129,990 Model S Plaid, which can manage 0-60 mph in a staggering 1.99 seconds. However, all the Plaid’s extra performance means range is reduced to 390 miles per charge.

It’s also pretty important to note just how drastic your choice of alloys can affect range. With the 21″ Arachnid Wheels equipped, range is reduced to 375 miles for the LR and 348 miles per charge for the Plaid.

  1. It would be great if you could actually buy one in Australia. There is no confirmed delivery date information available.
