Tesla Model S range edges closer to 630km

When Elon Musk said the Tesla Model S was close to achieving 630km on a charge, he wasn't kidding. Tesla has updated the electric luxury sedan's stats once again to give it an EPA estimated range of 630km (previously 600km) in Long Range Plus trim. You could theoretically drive from New York City to Pittsburgh with enough battery life left to go on a brief tour. Real-life results are bound to vary based on the temperature, your use of climate control and your driving habits.

Simply put, there wasn't much choice. #Tesla #Gigafactory #Germany
