A few weeks after Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced that the options list of the Tesla Model S and X would be updated in order to “simplify the product offerings”, the company has now brought about the changes.
Most of the tweaks in the two models majorly apply for the colours and trim options in the vehicle’s interiors. The base trims of the Model S or X 75D now cost a thousand dollars more than before. However, the cost for range-topping 100D models has been dropped by $500 with the S falling to $96,000 and the X to $99,000.
Apart from that, we learnt that the Premium all-black interior will now come as standard throughout the S and X models, which we imagine is at least partly responsible for the base price increase, and the Cream and Black and White interior options drop from $3,300 to $1,500.
As a part of its latest update, Tesla has also ditched the rear-facing jump seats from the options list of Model S, which means that buyers who are looking for more than five passenger seats in a Tesla will now have to opt for the Model X. Apart from that, the Model S also loses its panoramic sunroof option, while continuing to offer the all-glass roof. According to Elektrek, the deletion of the sunroof means it’s no longer possible to put a roof rack on the Tesla Model S.
On the Model X, buyers no longer have the option of optioning the six-passenger version with a centre console, though the standard six- and seven-passenger configurations remain. And finally, Tesla will only offer its 72-amp onboard charger in single phase markets, though that doesn’t seem to affect buyers in the United States.
