Tesla Model S

Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) will stop selling the cheapest versions of its Models S next month. More affordable as compared to what? These versions of the Model S come with a 75 kWh battery that is limited to 60 kWh by software restrictions. However, the vehicle is actually installed with a system-locked 75kWh battery that can be unlocked via an over-the-air update for a fee.

Tesla has announced an end to sales of the Model S 60 and 60D variants.

The two "60" versions of the Model S were introduced only last summer, though most customers have skirted over these entry level cars in favour of Model S 75 saloons instead. "To simplify the ordering process for our customers, we will be removing the 60 kWh option from our lineup", Tesla stated.

We don't want 2022 Comm Games too: GCoast
A bid from United Kingdom cities to jointly host the 2022 Commonwealth Games would be considered by Games chiefs. New Zealand, which last hosted the 1990 Commonwealth Games in Auckland, said it had no interest in hosting 2022.

American electric carmaker Tesla is soon going to discontinue the lower most variants of the Model S sedan. Those who ordered a Model S 60 or 60D ended up paying to unlock the battery storage limit and raise it to 75kWh. This decision comes as TSLA prepares to launch its next electric vehicle, the Model 3.

The Model 3 will start of at half the price of the Model S sedan but the top spec variants of the vehicle will end up costing about the same as the Model S sedan.
