Tesla-Model-S0023

With its dual electric motor system delivering the equivalent of a Lamborghini Aventador equalling 691 hp, the Tesla Model S P85D can rocket to 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds making it the quickest accelerating production sedan. In typical Elon Musk fashion however, the serial entrepreneur isn’t satisfied with those figures and has announced that acceleration improvements are on the cards.

In a tweet, Musk announced that a software update is currently being developed for the Tesla Model S range including the range-topping P85D. He revealed that the simple tweak will see the 100 km/h sprint dropping by 0.1 seconds to 3.1 seconds. The improvement will be made through tweaks to the inverter algorithm.

Musk also revealed that acceleration times of the less powerful Tesla Model S P85 will also drop but by a smaller margin.

  1. There is a lot to be said about this car, that clearly stands apart from any competition. BMW, Toyota, Honda, Hyundai and all other auto manufacturers stop folding under this pressure. Fact – FCV are EV hybrids. Fact – Hybrid or range extenders is a cop out.

    Start from scratch and build an all electric vehicle. The EV platform has proven itself in all test conditions. From start to finish, EV is the future. Grow some b*lls, and get to work. The EV Revolution as Begun, and time is running out.

    ***********HYBRIDS WILL LOSE**This the EV Revolution**EV RULES***********

    The best keeps getting better. The awesomeness of a seven passenger executive sedan that will run with the like of today’s 2 seat super cars. Beyond a super car itself, able to be updated world wide with just the push of a button. Once again proving the EV’s platform has superior capabilities.

    Updates faster with user interface, able to leap 0 to 60 in a single bound. Look at it fly, it a Ferrari, it a Bugatti, no it Supercar. Supercar, disguised as mild mannered Tesla Model S85D fights a never ending battle for fun to drive, the environment and the EV Revolution.

    “The Revolution will not be televised”, but it will be electrified. EVs RULE !!
