About Tesla Model S 70 (2016-…)

Detailed Descriptions

The Tesla Model S 70 (2016-…) is an all-electric rear-wheel drive liftback. It came out in 2016 replacing the older Tesla Model S 70 (2015-2016). Tesla stopped making the 70 in 2016 and replaced it with the Tesla Model S 60 (2016-2017). You can still find Tesla Model S 70 (2016-…) on the used car market, with prices starting around $20,500.

The Tesla Model S 70 (2016-…) has a 75 kWh battery pack, allowing it to travel up to 212 mi on a single charge. The car has an average efficiency of 32.5 kWh per 100 miles (or 3.1 miles per kWh) — ranked №478 out of 693 electric vehicles.

Frequently Asked Questions

How powerful is it? How fast does it accelerate?

The Tesla Model S 70 (2016-…) achieves a 0 to 60 mph acceleration in 5.5 seconds (placing it at №279 among 693 electric vehicles) and attains a maximum speed of 140 mph.

Its powertrain provides a power output of up to 235 kW (315 hp) and a torque of 325 lb-ft.

How far can it go on single charge? What is the real-world range?

The estimated How far can it go on single charge? What is the real-world range? for Tesla Model S 70 (2016-…) falls between 191–233 miles, ranking it №478 out of 693 electric vehicles. Several conditions can influence this range:

  • Speed: The battery drains faster at higher speeds.
  • Temperature: Extreme temperatures can impact range.
  • Terrain: Range is reduced on hilly or mountainous terrain.
  • Driving style: Aggressive driving behaviors, such as frequent acceleration and braking, decrease efficiency.
  • Feature utilization: Climate control and media system usage also affect range.

These figures are approximations, and your actual driving range may vary. When planning trips, consider these factors and be prepared for potential charging stops.

For trip planning assistance, utilize the EV Navigation interactive map.

What charging options are available? How long does it take to charge it?

The Tesla Model S 70 (2016-…) in the USA is equipped with a Tesla (NACS) charging port. You can charge it conveniently at home using a standard outlet, or utilize any public AC charging station with the appropriate cable. However, the car's built-in charger (inverter) limits the maximum AC charging speed to 11.5 kW, which translates to roughly 32 miles of range added per hour.

For faster charging, use DC fast-charging stations. The Tesla Model S 70 (2016-…) supports a maximum DC charging rate of 120 kW, but it's important to note that battery temperature and current charge level can affect the actual charging speed you'll experience.

To estimate charging time, rate, and cost, you can use Green Cars Compare Charging Calculator.

How big is it? What are the dimensions (length, width, height)?

The size and weight specifications for Tesla Model S 70 (2016-…) are as follows:

  • Length: 195.7 in
  • Width: 86.2 in (including side mirrors) or 77.3 in (excluding side mirrors)
  • Height: 56.9 in
  • Wheelbase: 116.5 in (distance between the center of the front and rear wheels)
  • Curb weight: 4469 lbs (weight of the empty car, no people or cargo)
How much cargo space does it offer? Does it have a front trunk?

Behind the rear seats of the Tesla Model S 70 (2016-…), you'll find 26.3 cubic feet of storage space (ranked №116 out of 693 electric vehicles).

Folding down the rear seats expands the total cargo capacity to 58.1 cubic feet (ranked №216 out of 693 electric vehicles).

Frunk capacity: The front trunk is called a "frunk", and it offers an additional 2.1 cubic feet for storing small items.

Is it suitable for towing? What is the maximum towing capacity?

The car isn’t officially rated for towing.
