There's some buzz around the internets again that suggests there may very well be a 100 kWh battery option coming for Tesla's Model S and X ranges. Currently Tesla's 90D, with their 90 kWh battery, holds the top spot in the line-up for range with 294 miles. This bump in power would give a significant boost in range, as well as power, possibly allowing the Model S to hit up to 380 miles. The quote below from The Verge makes this seem like it could be the real deal.
Source The VergeDutch blog*Kenteken.TV reports that RDW, the Dutch regulator that certifies Tesla's vehicles for use in the European Union, recently published listings of a number of new Tesla variants. This certification is necessary for the cars to be sold in the EU. Kentekennotes that RDW's public database now includes entries for a Tesla "100D" and "100X" - variant titles that follow Tesla's current naming system based on battery capacity. The listing for the 100D also claims the vehicle has a range of 613 kilometers, or 381 miles (although*Autoblog notes that EU range estimates tend to be more optimistic than those issued by the US EPA).
