Goodbye, Model S 60 and 60D

M - Tesla is discontinuing its cheapest versions of the Model S luxury sedan, the rear-wheel-drive 60 and all-wheel-drive 60D with the 60-kilowatt-hour battery pack. This means the 75 and AWD 75D will be the new entry-level models.

This won't be a big change for Tesla as the main difference between the Model S 60 and 75 is their badges.

While it seems that Tesla's vehicles line is expanding, the company suddenly announced on March 17 that people only have one month left to purchase a Model S 60 and 60D because the company will cease producing its 60kWh version.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel's public exchanges with President Donald Trump on Friday can be summarized in one word: awkward. Yet the White House still has not backed down from Trump's original claims - nor has it offered any evidence to support them.

Customers who still want the opportunity to own a 60 kWh Model S will have until April 16, 2017 to place their order. The company says that most customers chose to buy the additional upgrade that unlocks the full 75 kWh.

"We introduced the Model S 60 kWh battery as a more affordable option to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles", Tesla Inc told Seeking Alpha. With a starting price of around $35,000 plus undisclosed destination fee, a fully-optioned Model 3 will very likely approach the lower-end of the Model S's range.

Owners could pay to free up the additional 15 kWh and many did, suggesting that Tesla could drop the base model with little impact on sales.
