I watched a review of the latest LR Model S review, which has longer range and improvements to the suspension. It was overall very positive, but the main complaints were the overall styling is a bit tired and the interior is not too exciting. The range of 400+ miles is pretty impressive.

The range is impressive, but will that be enough to drive sales? The range was already impressive and sales are slowing to a crawl. One has to question whether Musk wants to be in the full size luxury segment. The level of excitement for the S and X is waning rapidly, even among the true fans. The Model 3 is eating into S sales and the Y will do the same to the X. Maybe no refresh means RIP.

Exactly S and X got them started but 3 and Y are needed to keep them alive. On the road I've seen maybe 5 X's in my time, maybe 20 S's but I've seen dozens of 3's and they have been out for a shorter period of time...I'm sure the Y will be the same. The masses want that EV SUV that isn't $90k+ even if it is a bit smaller. Once Audi makes that $60k Q5-Etron with 300 mile range it will sell like hotcakes.
