Tesla Model S Gains Speed Without Sacrificing Ecology
Ecology and speed usually don't go together, not even in one sentence. Yet Tesla has somehow managed to combine both without any compromises. For those who either love to go fast or else is concerned about the environment, the new Tesla Model S gives both, something that is rare in most cars.
The Tesla Model S P100D is being boasted by Tesla as the fastest production model in the world, a claim it proudly puts on its site. This feat is made even more amazing when one realizes that this is no ordinary car, but it is an ecologically-minded model. Usually ecology and speed don't typically go together, making the Tesla Model S then a marvel in itself.
With an acceleration of 0-60 mph at only 2.5 seconds, the Tesla Model S P100D is fast indeed. One has also to consider that this is a sedan and not a sports car, which makes the feat even more impressive. That means the car would typically carry from around up to 5 people seated and has a luggage compartment even.
What powers the Tesla Model S P100D is its 100 kWh battery. This battery gives the car a range of up to 315 miles on the EPA cycle. On the EU cycle this translates to 613 kilometers. Even for the average car this is economical as it can go far without the need for a recharge. The Model S is also said to have the longest range of any electric car produced.
The Verge notes that the Model S P100D is the third fastest production car, just behind the Ferrari LeFerrari and the Porsche 918 Spyder. The two cars though are essentially sports cars, while the Tesla Model S P100D is a sedan. The top speed that the Model S can gain though is only through its Ludicrous Mode. This mode is only available in the Model S P100D and the Model X P100D.
for its looks, the 2017 Model S has been revised, as noted by Car and Driver. Replacing the front grill is a new front fascia. The headlights have also been reshaped to a sleeker design. Overall then Tesla brings excitement to the car industry with the Model S P100D.
What further innovations await the industry has been outlined by iTech Post in its recent article.
