Tesla Korea introduces Model S and Model X, which can drive 500km or more with a single charge.
According to the Transportation Environment Research Institute of the National Institute of Environmental Sciences under the Ministry of Environment on the 17th, Tesla Korea has completed the emission and noise change certification for Model S Long Range Plus, Model S Performance, Model X Long Range Plus, and Model X Performance.
Tesla Korea carried out the change certification work for the four models to reorganize the domestic sales lineup of Model S and Model X to be the same as that of the US sales lineup.
Currently, Model S and Model X are sold as long range and performance models in Korea, but in the US, they are sold as long range plus and performance models.
Tesla Korea has undergone change certification to reorganize the lineup of Model S and Model X into Long Range Plus model and performance model like the United States.
The Long Range Plus model, launched by Tesla in June, is characterized by a significantly longer mileage than the existing long range model.
According to the Transportation Environment Research Institute, the one-time charging mileage of the Model S Long Range Plus model is 520.8km (based on room temperature), which is about 34km longer than the 487.0km long range model. In addition, the Model X Long Range Plus is 481.8 km, which is about 44 km longer than the long range model.
Tesla said in the description of the Long Range Plus model posted on the website, “The tolerance of Model S and Model X is applied to the seat, battery pack, drive system, tire, wheel, gearbox, etc. by applying the lightweight technology obtained while developing Model 3 and Model Y “We reduced the weight,” he said. “As a result, the mileage increased by at least 4%.”
Tesla has applied this technology to performance models to significantly increase the mileage of performance models.
The one-time charging mileage of the Model S Performance model is 512.4km (at room temperature), which is about 25km less than the Long Range Plus model, but it is about 33km longer than the previous model. Model X performance has increased from 421.3km to 448.2km to about 27km.
It is known that Tesla Korea is currently reviewing the launch schedule and selling price of the Long Range Plus model and the performance model.
The current market price of the Model S Long Range Plus is $74,990 (8,8 million won), which is about $5,000 (about 5.87 million won) lower than the long range model due to Tesla’s massive price adjustment.
In addition, the domestic sales price of the Tesla S Long Range is KRW 17.99 million, which is reduced by KRW 5.65 million from the previous year, and the price of the Model X Long Range is KRW 15.99 million.
