Tesla has updated the performance of its Model S and Model X electric cars with the introduction of the Model 3 Refresh. Both vehicles now appear to be nearing the 400-mile mark, which is remarkable as both the Tesla Model T and the Tesla Model S still use the same 18650 battery packs form factor that the company used in the original Tesla Roadster.

The Model X, which is impressive in itself, with an estimated range of 351 miles on a single charge, now has an estimated range of 371 miles. That speaks volumes about Tesla’s constant improvements to the car, especially considering it’s only a few years older than the original Model S.

The same applies to the Model S Performance, which, at 2.3 seconds, is the fastest of the current offerings, from 0 to 100 km / h. The vehicle also has a range of 387 miles on a single charge, although it was tuned for maximum efficiency. One of Tesla’s other long-range – and far-reaching – twin-engine models is Porsche’s Taycan Turbo S, which has an estimated range of up to 192 miles and a top speed of 155 miles per hour.

The size of the 18650 battery pack in the two vehicles also differs significantly: The Model X Long Range and Model S Performance have retained their original lithium-ion batteries, it is obvious that the massive range improvements that Tesla has introduced over the years are the result of some major improvements in the design of both vehicles. The ModelS Performance uses a 100 kilowatt-hour (kWh) battery pack that consists of up to 18650 cells, while the long-range counterpart works with 100 kWh batteries with a 200 kWh capacity.

This includes improving the chassis, CEO Elon Musk said at the unveiling of the Model X Long Range and Model S Performance models last year.

More importantly, this development indicates that Tesla’s next-generation will use larger and more energy-efficient cells than the upgraded Model 3 and Model Y cells. Tesla’s ability to drive nearly 400 miles on a single 18,650-cell battery pack in a Model X or Model S is very impressive.
