4wd range

4wd range

Just got confused looking at Swiss MS choice of 2wd and 4wd. I thought with introduction of second motor they have added some extra mile to the range. The ordering page for Switzerland says it is 502km for 2wd and 460km for 4wd though. Did i get something wrong?

Might be a wrong forum to post this. I just hold the MX reservation and this concern was more related to my future car full charge milage.

When I select Dual Motor, the range increases for me. The 85D increases the most (30 miles), followed by P85D (20 miles) and 60D (17 miles). This is the Canadian version.

The reason is actually pretty simple I believe. The Dual Motor version has not been tested for range by any government body yet. Tesla simply posts the range they came up with based on driving 105 km/hr (65 mph), which is 475 km (295 miles). This will not be the official number posted by NEFZ in Switzerland or EPA in America.

In Switzerland the MS 85 has an official range of 502 km (~312 miles) as tested by NEFZ standards. In America the MS has an official range of 426 km (265 miles) based on EPA standards. That is why we appear to gain range while you appear to lose it at the moment.

+1 @sg021 for possibly the most clear and cogent explanation of an obscure issue with the website.
