Tesla has killed off its cheapest model
Owners of Model S 60s can upgrade to 75-spec via wireless updates
The 60 starts at £66,935, but when it goes the £73,435 75 will be the lowest cost model
The 60D is the dual-motor version of the 60
Tesla's Model S competes with conventional four-doors rivals like the Panamera
When sales for the 60 end in April, the 75 will become the cheapest model
Sales for the entry Model S 60 were lower than that of the 75
The 60 is the shortest lived Tesla variant to have been produced yet
Sales of the 60, the £66,935 entry-level version of electric four-door hatchback, have been consistently beaten by the 75, which is one step up in the Model S range. Tesla has therefore decided to end sales of the 60 and 60D from 16 April.
The 60D is the dual-motor version of the 60.
The 75 will reassume the role of entry-level model, bringing the Model S's lowest price up to £73,435. The 75 actually uses the same battery pack as the 60, but has different software to increase output to 75 kWh.
Due to the technical similarities, Tesla is offering Model S 60 and 60D owners the chance to upgrade their car to 75 specification with an over-the-air software update.
