Tesla S is an EPA-rated range of 402 miles representing nearly 20 percent increase in range as compared to 2019 Model S 100D with the same battery pack design. According to Tesla, this achievement reflects its obsession with efficiency and energy frugality. The model has gone through several changes both iterative and transformational, in core hardware and system architecture development by the Tesla engineering, design, and production teams. The changes were in production earlier this year when they started manufacturing the Model S Long Range Plus, it stated. Meanwhile, the Model S Long Range Plus has recently received a price reduction of $5,000.

According to Tesla, there is a significant mass reduction with the standardisation of Tesla’s in-house seat manufacturing and lighter-weight materials used in the battery pack and drive units. The new model has the tempest aero wheels that are 8.5 inches wide which reduces aerodynamic drag compared to the previous wheels on Model S Long Range. The model has an increased drive unit efficiency by replacing the mechanical oil pump with an electric oil pump that optimizes lubrication independent of vehicle speed to reduce friction.
