About Tesla Model S 70D (2016)

The Tesla Model S 70D (2016) is an all-electric all-wheel drive liftback. It came out in 2016 replacing the older Tesla Model S 70 (2015). Tesla stopped making the 70D (2016) in 2016 and replaced it with the Tesla Model S 60D. You can still find Tesla Model S 70D (2016) on the used car market, with prices starting around $30,000.

The Tesla Model S 70D (2016) has a 75 kWh battery pack, allowing it to travel up to 219 mi on a single charge. The car has an average efficiency of 31.5 kWh per 100 miles (or 315 Wh/mile) — ranked №343 out of 586 electric vehicles.

Frequently Asked Questions

How fast is Tesla Model S 70D (2016)

The Tesla Model S 70D (2016) is equipped with a powertrain that delivers up to 245 kW (329 hp) of power and 387 lb-ft of torque.

This enables a 0 to 60 mph acceleration in 5.2 seconds (ranked №184 out of 596 electric vehicles) and a top speed of 140 mph.

Real-world range of Tesla Model S 70D (2016)

Tesla Model S 70D (2016) achieves a real-world range of 197–241 miles, placing it at №349 among 596 electric vehicles. However, this range is subject to several influences:

  • Speed: Traveling at higher speeds reduces battery life.
  • Temperature: Extreme cold or hot weather can affect range.
  • Terrain: Hilly or mountainous landscapes decrease range.
  • Driving habits: Aggressive driving with frequent acceleration and braking consumes more energy.
  • Feature usage: Climate control and media systems also influence range.

It's important to acknowledge that these are estimations, and your actual driving range may differ. Consider these factors when planning your trip and be ready for potential charging stops.

Utilize the interactive EV Navigation map for trip planning assistance.

Tesla Model S 70D (2016) charge port type?

The Tesla Model S 70D (2016) in the USA is equipped with a Tesla 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 33 miles of range added per hour.

For faster charging, use DC fast-charging stations. The Tesla Model S 70D (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.
