Default Tesla adds $6,500 'Performance Plus' option to Model S; adds range, improves handling

Filed under: EV/Plug-in, Tesla Motors



Tesla Motors is adding a special performance package for its all-electric Model S that not only will add miles of single-charge range, but will make sure those miles aren't driven sideways.

The automaker is charging $6,500 for its new "Performance Plus" option, which includes wider rear tires, upgraded stabilizer bars and bushings, among other goodies. Tesla says it took "hundreds of iterations affecting every detail of the suspension," but "our vehicle dynamics team was able to achieve the rare outcome of simultaneously improving performance, comfort and efficiency." The new rear Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires are 20 mm wider than previous tires and are "staggered for improved acceleration on low grip surfaces." Folks will also be able to get between six and 12 miles of range from those new tires.

Tesla continues to move its already up-market car into the proverbial stratosphere, and for good reason. The company, which beat its first-quarter sales targets, discontinued its cheapest variant of the Model S because of lack of demand even as it has improved the financing options for the EV.Tesla adds $6,500 'Performance Plus' option to Model S; adds range, improves handling originally appeared on Autoblog Green on Sun, 05 May 2013 15:40:00 EST.
