Electric Tesla Model S P100D is the new world's fastest car

Electric Tesla Model S P100D is the new world's fastest car
,
The new Tesla Model S P100D is the fastest accelerating production car in the world that can be bought today. Acceleration 0-60 mph is the task that will take 2.5 seconds only in Ludicrous mode.
Tesla Motors has presented the new Tesla Model S P100D car that brings two records. First, it is the fastest accelerating car that can be bought today and it is the third fastest accelerating production car ever. The only faster production cars were LaFerrari and Porsche 918 Spyder. Both of them cannot be bought today as their production was limited and already ended. Moreover, they costed million dollars. P100D is not cheap neither, nevertheless, $134,500 is only a fraction of their costs.

The new Tesla is capable to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 2.5 seconds. And it still has 5 seats (7-seater version is still an option) and has a large trunk. We cannot say the same about LaFerrari or above mentioned Porsche. The battery has a higher capacity that was enlarged from 90 kWh (P90D) to 100 kWh (P100D). Therefore, it is also the first electric car that is capable to achieve more than 300 miles in American EPA cycle. To be precise, the range is estimated to 315 miles (507 km). European cycle is even more optimistic and according to the European (not very precise) rules, the range was estimated to 613 km!
 
Model S is not the only one that has the new 100kWh battery. It can be bought also for SUV Model X (Model X P100D). In this case, the car is able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds when the Ludicrous mode is used. The range is estimated to 289 miles (EPA) or 542 km (European cycle). This car provides enough space for 7 travellers. The price is only a little bit higher, this model costs $135,000.

If the Tesla customer has ordered P90D but the car has not been delivered yet, he can upgrade to P100D version for additional $10,000. If the car was already delivered, the upgrade will cost $20,000 because the battery has to be recycled. Tesla admits that high price of the new models should help to pay costs of the development of smaller Model 3.
