New Tesla Model S 2020 pricing and specs detailed: Revolutionary electric car now costs more

As its name suggests, the Model S Performance can seriously hustle off the line, taking just 2.6 seconds to reach 100km/h.

Tesla Australia has once again adjusted pricing for its pioneering Model S, with the all-electric sedan now more expensive.

As before, just two versions of the Model S are available, with the entry-level Long Range now $1400 dearer, at $124,900 plus on-road costs, while the flagship Performance is up $1600, to $143,900.

CarsGuide has contacted Tesla Australia to see if there is a related increase in standard specification for the dual-motor Model S.

As reported, the Long Range can sprint from a standstill to 100km/h in a supercar-scaring 3.8 seconds, while the Performance reaches triple digits in a hypercar-like 2.6s thanks to its Ludicrous drive mode.

Conversely, the Long Range offers the best driving range, at 713km (NEDC), although the Performance’s 671km effort between charges isn’t too far behind.
