The Tesla Model S range has been simplified somewhat, with the electric car company removing a few of the car's drivetrain options.
From today the 85kWh battery option has been dropped from the Tesla Model S lineup. Additionally, the 90kWh battery pack can now only be specified in dual-motor all-wheel drive format.
Heath Walker, a spokesman for Tesla Australia, told CarAdvice.com.au: "The recently introduced 90kWh battery pack offers unprecedented range and value that has been well received by our customers. As a result, we will no longer be offering the 85kWh battery for new Model S orders.
"[The] Model S is designed to be completely customisable, ensuring that customers are able to build the car that meets their unique needs. "
With these revisions, the revised Model S lineup kicks off with a 70kWh battery available in either 235kW rear-wheel drive format ($122,208) or 245kW all-wheel drive form ($131,958).
Above these are the all-wheel drive only models fitted with the 90kWh battery pack. This part of the range starts with the 311kW 90D ($158,088) and the 376kW P90D ($197,738). Buyers who want to access the 397kW Ludicrous Mode in their P90D sedan must stump up $217,237.
