Tesla Model S and X

Tesla has launched a new version of the Model S and Model X known as the Standard Range. This version offers less driving range and has a lower base price, slashed by $10,000 compared to existing models.

The starting price for the Model S Standard Range is $79,880, as opposed to the next grade, an unspecified trim level, which is now priced at $89,880. This middle tier sits between the new Standard Range and the high-performance $109,880 Model S Plaid. Similarly, the Model X Standard Range begins at $89,880, while the unbranded mid-tier model costs $99,880, and the Model X Plaid is priced at $109,880.

For the 2023 Model S Standard Range, the range is estimated at 320 miles, which is 85 miles less than the model above it. The Model X Standard Range’s estimated range is 269 miles, a decrease of 79 miles from the next level. Both of these new versions are equipped with dual-motor all-wheel-drive systems, but their acceleration from 0-60 mph is slightly slower by 0.6 seconds. This results in a 3.7-second acceleration time for the Model S Standard Range and 4.4 seconds for the Model X Standard Range.

Being the oldest models in Tesla’s product range, the S and X lineups have experienced several changes in both range and price over the years. Standard Range versions were previously offered but discontinued in 2019. Tesla had also limited range through software for more budget-friendly versions, instead of using a smaller battery pack, although it’s not known if this is still the practice.

In addition to the introduction of these lower-range versions, Tesla has reduced prices on multiple occasions throughout the year. This includes reductions of up to 20% across the entire range in January and additional cuts to the Model S and Model X in March and April.

Lastly, just this week, Tesla reduced prices for the Model Y in China, responding to growing competition from local car manufacturers. According to Automotive News, some versions of Tesla’s top-selling electric vehicle are now up to 4.5% cheaper in the Chinese market.
