Tesla Model S P100D: Tesla presents the “fastest car in the world” What is?

What makes a car is the fastest in the world? That’s probably the crux of the matter, and the question we have to answer to understand why Tesla has introduced his new Tesla Model S P100D as the “fastest car in the world”. To achieve this, it was necessary a more powerful battery, and with greater energy capacity, which reaches already up to 100 kWh, compared to the 60 kWh version more basic, and 90 kWh of version fastest and most powerful commercialized to date by Tesla. But above all it was necessary to further improve its acceleration. The Tesla Model S P100D accelerate 0 to 96 mph in 2.5 seconds, which left him in a 0 to 100 km/h in around 2.6 or 2.7 seconds. Also sold a Tesla Model X P100D, version, fastest and most powerful of his “crossover” electric. But, once more, why assures Tesla that is the “fastest car in the world”?

Obviously, Tesla holds in its acceleration. With these figures we find very few sports that are able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h as fast as a Tesla Model S P100D. Tesla mentions the only two sports that exceed these numbers, the Ferrari LaFerrari and the Porsche 918 Spyder, but removed from the equation, since the supersports a very exclusive prices in the order of a million dollars, which also are no longer for sale have been marketed in the games very limited, and be exhausted to this day.

Obviously, the acceleration is not everything, and use that argument to define your saloon electric as the world’s fastest is a bit daring for those of Elon Musk. But according to their figures I am convinced that you will be with me in that we are looking at an awesome car.


The Tesla Model S P100D will offer a range of 613 miles according to the cycle, european. An impressive figure for an electric car, and even for a car of its size and power, since it is not easy to find sedans very high performance that are able to reach your target at distances far distances without stopping to refuel. Saving the fact that this autonomy is based on the theoretical of the approval, and that the energy performance of this car will depend, in great measure, of the driving practiced, in the theoretical field practically would be able to travel between Madrid and Barcelona without stopping to recharge the batteries.

Its top speed is limited to 250 km/h and its price in the united States will be, for both models, among 134.500 $ and $ 135,000. It is also interesting to mention that Tesla has offered, to those customers that they are still waiting for the booking of a Tesla Model S P90D with Ludicrous Mode, the possibility to increase the battery of your reserves to 100 kWh for $ 10,000 additional.

current owners of a Tesla Model S P90D with Ludicrous Mode, who already have the car in your garage, also be able to avail of the large batteries, although their price will amount to $ 20,000, according to Tesla, the cost of the assembly and recycling of the old battery.
