Loaded Tesla Model S May Reach EPA Official 265-Mile Driving Range

Tesla has three different versions of its Model S electric vehicle that are differentiated by trim and the size of the battery packs. The high-end version has an 85 kWh battery pack and has recently boasted a 320-mile driving range on the EPA's old two-cycle test. Tesla is now claiming that the vehicle may score an official 265-mile driving range on the EPA's much more stringent five-cycle test.

Tesla also says that it expects the 40 and 60 kWh battery pack vehicles to achieve a driving range of 141 miles and 203 miles respectively. Electric vehicle driving ranges vary greatly depending on the environment and driving style. Pricing for the Model S ranges from $57,400-$105,400.
