Tesla's 100kWH Battery Makes Vehicles Third Fastest Accelerating Cars
Tesla may already have helped innovate the future of motor vehicles, but the company is not sitting pretty with Elon Musk behind it. The founder of Tesla just announced that his team has produced a new battery for its current Model S and Model X.
According to Recode, Musk boasted that the battery pack is a whopping 100 kWH. Reportedly, the battery allows the Model S to go from 0 to 60mph in 2.5 seconds flat, in what the company has taken to call "ludicrous mode." The CEO made this announcement during a call to a group of journalists.
Currently, this claim makes Tesla's Model S the third-fastest production car ever made, following only the Ferrari LaFerrari and the Porsche 918 Spyder. However, Tesla is proud of the fact that its new battery does make the Model S the fast pure electric vehicle that has ever hit the market.
The larger battery not only makes the Tesla vehicles move faster, but it also allows riders to travel up to 315 miles for each full charge. Because it is the first electric vehicle to break the 300-mile boundary, Tesla is again making strides in its industry.
According to The Los Angeles Times, owners of the Model S P90 Ludicrous model can upgrade to the 100 kWH battery for $10,000 if the vehicle is still under preorder, or $20,000 is the unit is already in use. The Model X can also be fitted with the same batter, but the clock in time to reach 60mph is at 2.9 seconds. For a seven-seater, this is not a bad number at all.
"Looking at the bigger picture here, it's just amazing that an electric car is now the fastest car in production in the world," Musk shared. "I think it's a great message to the world and really speaks to the fact that electric cars are the future. That's just a very positive message for the electric vehicle industry as a whole beyond just Tesla."
