Tesla said Tuesday that it’s changing the naming structure of its cars and will no longer use kilowatt ratings to identify various trim levels.
The company currently offers Models S and X vehicles in 100D and P100D, with 75D cars being cut a few months ago. Under the change, the P100D will be called the “Performance” and models equipped with Ludicrous Mode will be called “Performance with Ludicrous Mode.” The names are more similar to the method used for the Model 3.
Additionally, Tesla is offering a more affordable version of its priciest vehicles in the way of base models dubbed simply “Model S” and “Model X.” The Model S will have a starting price of $85,000 and a range of 310 miles, while Model X will be priced at $88,000 and have a range of 270 miles. Both versions will offer the same 0-60 mph in 4.1 seconds performance as the Extended Range versions but priced at $8,000 lower.
Tesla’s online configurator was updated Tuesday to reflect the changes.
