Tesla Model S, Model X Long Range Plus get range boost

Tesla has liberated more range from the Model S and Model X, thanks to "many small hardware improvements". Elon Musk took to his preferred medium (Twitter) to reveal the Model S Long Range Plus now has a claimed EPA range of 628km, up from 596km. The Model X SUV has seen its range jump from 528km to 565km – at least, Tesla says it has. The claimed ranges are yet to be certified, so they're just estimates for now.
