    I think it would be quite cool if there was a P75D for those of us who want the performance but don't need the range. I wonder what the 0-60 time would be given lighter battery pack but fewer cells overall to contribute to the torque rating.

    There's a lot of people way smarter than me in this, but from what I read, I wouldn't expect that to be possible.

    The larger battery isn't only for range, it produces more power to feed into the motors. That extra power is what the P takes advantage of.
