During a teleconference, which was dedicated to the results of the fourth quarter of last year, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that the corporation is close to showing the Model S liftback with a 400-mile power reserve (approximately 645 km). Currently, the most long-range variation of the electric car travels 379 miles (according to the WLTP cycle) or 610 km

As Musk emphasized, over the past years his company managed to significantly improve the chemical composition of 18650 batteries and thereby increase the range of electric vehicles. The latest version of traction batteries makes it possible for Model S to travel 379 (WLTP) or 373 (EPA) miles (610 and 600 kilometers respectively) on a single charge, but the corporation promises to soon reach 400 miles (645 km). This indicator will be a record not only for the American brand, but also for the entire industry.

However, for the upcoming models of the American company and at all declares incredible numbers. So, the range reserve of the second generation Roadster targa will approach 1000 km, while the car will be equipped with a 200 kW / h battery; pickup Cybetruck in the flagship modification will cover 805 km.

At the moment, only the small-scale Lightyear One with solar panels can compete with them, demonstrating under certain conditions a range of 1154 km.
