    I know Tesla claims better efficiency in the dual motor cars but how much more highway range would that equal to? Say a 60D vs a 60 RWD. Would the D only get 10 additional miles like the EPA average? Or is the difference greater when comparing highway range due to the efficiencies of dual motors?

    What is the difference between the 2 EPA ratings? That would give you an idea... otherwise it's hard to say because it depends on how people drive the car, at what speed, etc.

    Scroll down to the range per charge section. 219 miles for the 60, 225 for the 60D at 65 MPH and their default conditions.

    So I guess the difference is negligible
