Tesla will discontinue the 90 kWh battery pack next week

Tesla has been on a mission to streamline its options for the Model S and X. Lately, it resulted in removing the software-locked 60 kWh battery pack option and earlier this week, Tesla introduced a new online design studio to bundle the options available on Tesla’s vehicles.

Now we learn that the automaker is removing one of those options: the 90 kWh battery pack.

It’s a move that most people familiar with the company saw coming since the introduction of the 100 kWh battery pack last year.

The only 10 kWh energy capacity difference made it hard to understand why Tesla would keep the option, but the 100 kWh battery pack was for a long time limited to the performance versions of the Model S and X.

Now that the non-performance version, the 100D, is being delivered, Tesla is removing the option from its lineup.

The company confirmed to Electrek that the 90 kWh battery pack will not be available for order after June 8th.

It means that as soon as next week, Tesla’s options for the Model S and X will be limited to only two battery packs: 75 kWh and 100 kWh.

The Model S 90D starts at $90,000 and it is only available in all-wheel-drive dual motor. It was also the cheapest option to still have access to Tesla’s smart air suspension system.

Now the 100D will be the next best thing and it is currently offered for a $10,000 premium on the 90D, but you also get 41 more miles.
