Tesla has once again upgraded the Model X. After the upgrade, the battery density of the upgraded model has been expanded, and the engine performance has also been enhanced. It is reported that the upgrade targets include Model S and Model X, and the battery packs of the new Model S and Model X have also been updated. For the updated Model X models, some media have obtained relevant new data released by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Tesla Model X
The following is the Model X data sheet compiled by the US Environmental Protection Agency:
But these parameters are not from Tesla’s official parameters. The data shows that after the upgrade, the energy density of the battery pack has increased from 165 Wh/kg to 186.21 Wh/kg. The overall electric capacity has dropped from 103 kWh to 100 kWh. However, the cruising range of Model X is hardly affected by the slight decrease in overall capacity. According to the EPA data sheet, one of the biggest changes in Model X is to confirm that the long-range version will also receive a new electric motor like the Plaid model, which is more powerful than the current model in terms of power.
Tesla has switched both motors on Model X to AC permanent magnet motors and increased the power of the front motor to 243kW and the power of the rear motor to 248kW.
