The Model S Standard Range is priced at $78,490 USD, which is a significant $10,000 USD less than its Long Range counterpart. Despite the reduced price tag, it boasts an impressive estimated range of 320 miles, a top speed of 149 mph, and can accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 3.7 seconds.

This move by Tesla is likely to attract a broader audience, making luxury electric vehicles more accessible to potential buyers without sacrificing the brand’s renowned performance standards.
In Canada, the Model S Standard Range costs $108,990 CAD, which is $13,000 CAD cheaper than the Long Range version. The Model X is priced at $122,990 CAD, also $13,000 CAD cheaper than its Long Range counterpart.
