Upon launching in Australia, the electric vehicle-maker offered 60, 80 and 85kWh battery packs in the Model S, but now the last of the ‘originals’ - the 85 - has joined the 60 and 80 models in the pages of history.
As a commenter on Twitter pointed out to TMR, his P85 is "already a collector's item...".
The Model S 70 (with 70kW battery pack) is now the entry-level offering, available in either single-motor rear-wheel-drive or dual-motor all-wheel-drive.
Pricing for the 70 starts from $111,400, while adding the second electric motor for the 70D bumps the price to $118,900; plus on-road costs.
Maximum range for the 70 is rated at 420km, while the 70D can be stretched to 442km between charges. Accessible power is rated at 235kW/400Nm for the 70 and 245kW/525Nm for the 70D.
Buyers looking for more can step up to the AWD-only 90kWh variants, available as the 90D or performance P90D models.
Pricing for the 90D starts at $139,000, with the P90D starting from $169,500; plus on-roads.
Stats for the 90 models reveal a maximum range for the 311kW/660Nm 90D of 550km, while the 376kW/967Nm P90D is rated at 505km.
To add ‘Ludicrous Mode’ to your P90D will set you back a further $15,000, and this option bumps power to 397kW while trimming the already-impressive 0-100km/h time from 3.3 seconds to a supercar-challenging 3.0 seconds.
Having opened Supercharging stations in Sydney, Goulburn, Wodonga, Gundagai, Euroa and Melbourne, Tesla has now begun the charge north from Sydney to Brisbane.
Port Macquarie on the NSW mid-north coast will be the next town to host Superchargers for the EV-maker, with a six-station facility planned for the Cassegrain Winery. The winery is just off the Pacific Highway, a few minutes north of the Oxley Highway junction.
Owners can now depart Tesla’s St Leonards Supercharger in North Sydney and travel the 370km north to Port Macquarie to utilise the next Supercharging facility. From there, Destination Charging points are available in Brunswick Heads and Brisbane, while a Destination Charger is also available in Port Macquarie.
Tesla is aiming to connect Brisbane to Melbourne with Superchargers before 2017, and the Australian launch for the Model X SUV is scheduled for the second half of the year.
