The Tesla models Model S (Test) and Model X (Test) can now achieve an approximately ten percent ranging range with their unwilling 100 kWh. At the same time, Tesla improves the control of adaptive chassis malposition and air suspension for the two technically closely related models.
The efficiency increase owes the drives of S and X according to Tesla of the transformation of the synchronous reluctance motor with permanent magnets and the power electronics. At the same time, however, the reduction of mechanical resistance in lubrication, cooling, storage and transmission to contribute to a new best value of 93 percent in the efficiency.
It remains for the four-wheel drive in the combination of a permanent magnet motor in front with an induction motor on the rear axle. Also unnecessary remains the structure of the battery, further not the cells of the 2170er format as currently already used in Model 3 (Test), like Motor trend On the 23. April 2019 reported.
Efficiency in both directions better
Net is intended to increase the range by more than ten percent, because the efficiency in recuperation in the same mabe increases as driving with electricity. The same effect also increases performance and torque by a similar amount, which should lead to better maximum acceleration.
Tesla specifies for the model S with 100 kWh battery 370 miles range in the American EPA cycle (610 kilometers in the WLTP), the model X with 100 kWh battery should be 325 miles (EPA) or. 505 km (WLTP) reach. Since the values have so far been stated according to the obsolete NEFZ, we must believe Tesla until further the rounds ten percent. Thanks to the high efficiency of the electric path, the models S and X should now be loaded with 200 kW at Teslas V3 or 145 kW at V2-SuperCharger. However, the full 250 kW can still use only the new Tesla Model 3.
Air Spring Update "Over-the-Air"
In addition, the adaptive malfunction of the air spring system of both models is a software update, which is to be imported even in existing vehicles "over-the-air". This will now strengthen the steam power on motorway rides or in "autopilot" mode to convey a "dynamic driving vessel". In the course of the review, the air suspension also benefits from improving the level regulation during the ride. If possible, it should keep the car even lower between 116 and 160 mm ground clearance to reduce the air resistance.
