The original big EV sedan, stupendously quick Plaid, that Supercharger network


Budget interior, questionable build quality, brakes and suspension not a match for speed

Bottom Line

Tesla's aging flagship sedan is still a sales force, with its ease of use and relative affordability serving the four-door well. This is not a luxury car, though.

Tesla Cuts Prices Of Model S And Model X With New Standard Range Trim

Tesla introduces a new entry-level model on the Model X and Model S.

About a week ago, Lucid made news by dramatically cutting prices of its well-loved Air sedan.. Well, it seems that Tesla has readied a response – the Tesla Model X and Tesla Model S have had substantial price cuts in the form of a new base model. This is the second price cut of the Model S and Model X this year.

The new base model, now dubbed the standard range, drops the price of the Model S and Model X by $10,000. Now, the Model X will start at $89,880, and the Model S will start at $79,880, undercutting the Lucid Air.

Porsche Taycan vs Tesla Model S Comparison

“Cool, but is it better than the Tesla?”

Without exception, this question has come up in every single Porsche Taycan conversation I’ve had with family and friends. It’s typically the second one about the German EV; the first is about pronunciation (“tie- kahn“). People don’t normally say which Tesla they mean, which shows the power of the brand, like Google, Kleenex, and Coke before it. But we all know folks mean the Model S—including Porsche itself.

In fact, that’s who initiated this comparison. Porsche Canada saw an opportunity when one of its dealers received a 2019 Model S 100D trade-in. Since Tesla itself doesn’t interact with journalists, and there’s no fleet to speak of in the Great White North, Porsche has been lending the car out alongside the Taycan 4S for comparison purposes. Is that unusual? Certainly. Does it mean some aspects of this particular model, showing a little over 20,000 km (12,500 miles) on its odometer, aren’t directly comparable to the relatively box-fresh Porsche? Also yes. Nonetheless, unless you’re looking at the just-updated Model S, this particular unit is broadly similar to the ones found at Tesla stores now.
