Tesla goes faster still

ELECTRIC car maker Tesla continues to make significant improvements to its Model S and X, with the new P100D with Ludicrous mode now the quickest accelerating mass production car in the world.

The speed increase, to zero-100km/h in 2.7 seconds, makes it the third fastest production car (and the fastest mass production car – the two cars in front of it are small batch performance cars which are no longer available to purchase brand new – the LaFerrari and the Porsche 918 Spyder).

The new 100 kWh battery also increases range substantially to an estimated 613km, making it the longest range production electric vehicle by far.

The larger battery pack is also available on the Model X, making the world’s quickest SUV even faster. Model X P100D with Ludicrous mode accelerates from zero-100km/h in 3.1 seconds and travels up to 542km on a single charge. Model X is also a pure electric SUV and can seat up to seven adults.

Tesla customers who have ordered a P90D Ludicrous, but not taken delivery, can upgrade to the 100 kWh pack (for an additional fee). Existing P90D Ludicrous owners can also upgrade to a 100 kWh pack, but for an increased fee, as their used 90 kWh pack will have to be recycled.

Pricing will be announced shortly.
