Tesla announced Tuesday a battery upgrade for some Model S sedan and Model X crossovers. The batteries come with a significant price tag of US$20,000, but will boost the range of the Model S to up to 315 miles. The Model X will have a range of up to 289 miles. Both cars will also be even faster in Ludicrous mode, which
is a tad scary sounds really fun. The batteries can be purchased as an upgrade for $20,000, or in new model designations that have the batteries built in. These improvements are significant, as range is one of the great limiting factors for electric vehicles. Tesla has been a leader in automobile battery technology, and the company is likely to set whatever bar Apple Car is compared to when it’s eventually released.
