Standard Range is rated to go up to 269 miles, as opposed to 348 miles for the currently “regular” model. Battery quality deteriorates over time.
The smaller range, according to Reuters, has nothing to do with battery-pack size, cell chemistry, or physical variations.
Software has narrowed the spectrum of these new models, which streamlines manufacture but may draw criticism on a fundamental basis. The additions might be a ploy to increase S and X sales amid a barrage.
