Tesla seems to had a major change of heart regarding long distance ranges since 2019. It seems like the mileage race was big then Tesla became the best selling vehicles without that crazy range and they said why pull around all that extra weight if most dont need the range. We shall see, but that 500 mi range is a lot of battery. So i concur that 500 miles is likely not going to happen. I think 400 is even going to be a stretch. And they will sell 5 million of them even with a sub 400 mi range and maintain high demand. The folks looking to tow like myself will be disappointed but we will get over it. 200 miles of towing is a reasonable distance between charges.Mid to high 70s, original planned tri-motor 500 mile range price was $69.9k. I am expecting this configuration would be $79k now to be eligible for tax credit. But I guess the range won't hit 500 miles.
If it is dual motor 300 mile config, then the price is much higher than original $50k price.
