Tesla is approaching the start of deliveries of Model S and Model X to Europe. Both vehicles received official WLTP range certifications.
Tesla continues to actively prepare for the start of deliveries of its flagship Model S and Model X to Europe. Last week, car order holders from several European countries reported receiving calls from Tesla employees. During the conversation, the company's managers clarified whether the configuration of the car remains unchanged. If the customers did not make any changes and agreed to receive delivery in Q4, then Tesla employees agreed on the address, place of delivery, and payment terms. The earliest delivery date reported was the end of November, with the latest in February.
Now, in confirmation of expectations, Model S and Model X have received official Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) range certifications, indicating that the vehicles are fully ready for sales and deliveries in the region. The results were revealed in an update to the Tesla website in Europe, which was spotted by @tesla_adri/Twitter.
Tesla updated the range on the Model X in Europe. It's now not an wltp estimate but the actual wltp Range for both Model S and X.— Tesla_Adri (@tesla_adri) October 16, 2022

It is noteworthy that the efficiency of Model X was higher than Tesla had previously assumed. Model X and its Plaid variant previously showed an estimated range of 560 km (348 miles) and 528 km (328 miles) respectively, now the information on the website shows 576 km (358 miles) and 543 km (337 miles) respectively. The WLTP of Model S has 634 km (394 miles), while the Plaid has a range of 600 km (373 miles).
