The budget version of the Tesla Model S, with its 60 kWh battery pack has been delayed. But that didn't stop the more wallet-friendly EV from swinging by the EPA. It seems that lighter power source has led to a slightly increased efficiency, though a decreased range. The 60 kWh version will supposedly run out of juice after 208 miles, which translates into 95 MPGe. That's not bad considering the higher-end 85 kWh version clocks in at 89 MPGe, with an EPA estimated range of 265 miles. Then again, it seems that rating is a bit conservative, as one father and son team managed 405 miles on a single 85 kWh charge. At just shy of $70,000, the "mid-range" Tesla S is still quite a pricey proposition. We'll just have to wait and see if "budget" model with its 40 kWh battery and $60,000 price tag is any more of a value.
