Tesla Unveils Ultra Speed Burst Feature Dubbed 'Insane Mode; Gets Sued By Disappointed Car Owners
Tesla Motors Inc. consumers in Norway are demanding a refund from the U.S. electric-car manufacturer, claiming that the car models that they bought that was endorsed with an "insane mode" feature of acceleration didn't accelerate as fast as they expected it to be.
An estimated number of 126 Norwegian owners of the Tesla Model S P85D performance version are demanding an immediate refund after the supposed "insane mode" featured model only peaked at 469 horsepower instead of the promised 700 hp, according to Kaspar N. Thommessen, a lawyer at Wikborg Rein law firm.
The car "has too low horsepower," the lawyer stated in a recently e-mailed answer to numerous questions. "And of course, it affects the car's performance, according to the consumers." Tesla dismissed the accusations.
"The car meets requirements according to the measurement method required by the authorities," explained Even Sandvold Roland, a Tesla representative. The Oslo District Court stated that it has already scheduled hearings and court meetings for the case in December.
Norway Is Promoting Electric Car Usage
Norway is one of the largest market sellers for the Model S Sedan, in part for state budgeting that encourages their people to opt for electric-car purchases instead. Tesla not making sales on the P85D version there anymore, while the inheritor P90D costs $96,700.
The former model was popular for its so-called "insane mode" acceleration feature after it was released and dispatched about two years ago. Norway's Consumer Disputes Commission administered last June that five of the P85D buyers who filed a complaint about inadequate acceleration should be paid as much as 50,000 kroner each for the trouble.
Tesla Conducts Their Own Test
Tesla's conducted their own tests and separate investigations showed the P85D can step up from zero to a hundred kilometers per hour in only 3 seconds. That implies that the performance that was promised "have always been accurate," Sandvold Roland said in an e-mail.
