Tesla has hit back against Lucid in the battle for who has the most range.

A new Model S' Monroney sticker showsa new EPA range of 409 miles.

Tesla has again increased the range of the Model S electric sedan to a new record high.

It is again taking the lead in its range and price rivalry with Lucid.

Earlier this year, Tesla managed to increase the range of the Model S to 402 miles on a single charge – a new record for all-electric vehicles.

A few months later, Lucid unveiled the base version of its Air electric sedan with a range of 406 miles and a price competitive with Tesla’s Model S, which is expected to be its top competitor in the luxury sedan segment.

In response to the announcement, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that Tesla will reduce Model S price to $69,420 – trolling Lucid in the process:

It officialized the rivalry between the two electric vehicle companies even though Lucid has yet to deliver its first vehicle.

Now Tesla is upping the antes again.

An Electrek reader found a brand new Tesla Model S produced this month and the Monroney sticker shows an updated EPA range of 409 miles on a single charge:

The Model S Long Range Plus had a build date in November 2020.

It’s unclear what is pushing the range to 409 miles or if it is based on software, hardware improvements or both.

The EPA has yet to update its website with the new rating, but if it made it to the Monroney sticker, it is a good indication that it is official. Tesla also hasn’t updated the range on its website.

Last month, Tesla gave Model S Performance a big increase in range, but the Long Range Plus wasn’t updated.

So this is what its going to be like? Tesla and Lucid going back and forth adding 1 more mile of range? Reminds me of when I was a kid and saying "Whatever you said plus 1!" to win an argument.
