Tesla’s Model X due to begin deliveries Sept 29 is now apparently estimated to travel 250 miles on a charge instead of 240.
This is for the largest 90-kilowatt-hour battery version, and the increase was discovered by customers first in line to get the hugely pre-ordered electric crossover.
First reports were on the Tesla Motors Club forums by buyers who’d been invited to configure the car on the Tesla Design Studio. The studio estimated 240 miles, and now it has inexplicably been changed to 250 miles.
Tesla fans are speculating on why this may be, but it’s unclear at this writing.
