The Tesla Model S 60 and 60D have again been dropped from the Model S range once more, leaving the Model S 75 as the entry-level Tesla.
Whatever the reason, the Tesla Model S 60 and 60D have been dropped from Tesla’s range as, apparently, no one was ordering them.
Of course, that was the same reason Tesla gave for dropping the 60 and 60D two years ago, from which point the UK got only 4WD Model Ss, and the Model S 70D was the (then) entry level.
But a year later, just after the Model S got a facelift, Tesla decided not only to bring the Model S 60D back in the UK, but its RWD sibling Model S 60 too.
The plan seemed to have been to give those who’d ordered a Model 3 somewhere to park their money whilst waiting for Tesla to find a way to actually build their new baby car.
But Tesla has now scrapped that plan, a plan which always seemed a bit daft as the 60 models and 70 models are the same under the skin, with just software making the 60 models lower powered. So no savings for Tesla in production, just a lower sale price.
So if you want a Model S 60 or 60D (why would you?) you can still order one until 6 April 2017 (according to the letter Tesla sent us), and you will be able to upgrade it alter to a 75. Although that’ll cost you more than doing it from the start.
