Ottawa, Ontario — Tesla is now offering North American buyers a new variant of its Model S or Model X at lower prices.
While the two vehicles are $10,000 cheaper, these new “Standard Range” (SR) models come with a smaller range as well. The Model S SR has a 515-kilometre range, while the Model X SR has a 433-kilometre range.
The Model S SR can be ordered for $108,990 before add-ons; the SR Model X is $122,990 before add-ons. The original Model S is $121,990 and the original Model X is listed for $135,990.
Further differences between the two models have yet to be noted by the automaker, but both models have the same battery pack and motors. Performance and range are limited by software, said a Tesla rep.
