    I am going to order the 60 KWH Model S and I've already received my Email from Tesla saying that it's time for me to lock in my order and configure my car. However, I have not yet confirmed my order because I'm still waiting to see the 5 cycle range estimates. I think most of us are expecting it to be roughly 195 miles (85% of the 230 mile ideal range) but I am really not comfortable locking in my order until I see the actual number.

    I haven't read any reports of a 60kWh pack being produced, let alone of a Model S driving with a 60kWh pack. The Model S options website still says "enters production fall 2012". Tesla would be overdue providing that information from December, 22nd on :tongue:. Better call your contact at Tesla and beat a number out of them.

    I was one of those, but I upgraded to 85kWh after the Supercharger announcement, since it seemed like the bigger pack would make the Superchargers that much more useful. Plus, I figured that it would increase the likelihood of getting my car in 2012.

    I haven't seen any official word from the EPA, so do you think MT is guessing at the numbers for the 40 and 60? Or Tesla knows something and leaked it to MT?

    I'd say guess work; just multiplying 160 and 230 with 0.88 (roughly 265/300).
