Tesla Model S Gets More Range: Record 409 Miles, Beats Lucid Air

It might be equipped with more energy dense battery cells.

After the Tesla Model S Long Range Plus had been officially rated at 402 miles (647 km) in June 2020, Tesla now delivers versions that can go even further.

According to Electrek, who obtained a photo of the Monroney sticker of the newly produced Model S Plus (November), it shows 409 miles (658 km) of EPA combined range.

That’s 1.7% more than previously and a new record for an electric car available on the market.

It’s hot news as even Tesla has not revealed this number in its online design studio (of course, there is also nothing new on the EPA website).

Once we compare the new EPA rating with the previous, from June, it turns out that there are differences in the efficiency.

The new Model S LRP is nearly 1% less efficient (yes, less) in the combined test cycle, and some 1.6% less efficient in the city, while on the highway it turns out to be almost 1% more efficient (all percents highly rounded).

New EPA rating:

  • range of 409 miles (658 km)
  • energy consumption (including charging losses):
    • combined: 116 MPGe – 291 Wh/mi (181 Wh/km)
    • city: 119 MPGe – 283 Wh/mi (176 Wh/km)
    • highway: 113 MPGe – 298 Wh/mi (185 Wh/km)
