Maybe now, after theyve been on the road for four years, people are starting to understand. That blur that just whip past you on the highway, that luxury sedan that could be better-looking cousin of Jaguar or Maserati, that whispering quiet 4-door sliding into night-thats Tesla Model S. There is nothing else on the road like it. The all-electric Model S challenges supercars for acceleration bragging rights, can travel around 240 miles before needing recharge at one of Teslas free Supercharger network stations, combines space-age aerodynamics with Old-school elegance in its exterior lines, doesnt burn drop of gasoline, and has German automakers scrambling to come up with electric luxury sedan of their own that can somehow compete With it. As it does with most every facet of manufacturing, Tesla takes a different approach to Model year assignments. Every Model S that is fully assembled on or before Dec. 31 2015 is 2015; every Model S produced from then until the beginning of 2017 is 2016. So the 2016 Tesla Model S wo be available until January at earliest, but there are some recent updates that will impact Model S sedans that roll OUT of the Fremont, CA factory in 2016. The Model S exterior remains unchanged, but the vaunted electric powertrain get some ludicrous upgrades. Literally. Model S P85D, which was the fastest Model S before these upgrades, had an Insane Mode that would rocket car from 0-60 mph in scant 3. 1 seconds. But Tesla has created an option that adds 5 kWh hours to that battery, upping it from 85 to 90 kWh, meaning the new high-end performance Model S is P90D-and has, as you may have guess, Ludicrous Mode that pushes the car from 0-60 mph in just 2. 8 seconds. There is ALSO new base Model S, 70, which starts at 70 000 and replaces 60. 70s powertrain consists of a 70 kWh battery and an electric motor that powers rear wheels with 382 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque, able to send the car from 0-60 mph in 5. 5 seconds. The driving range depends on average speed, outside temperature, whether or not youre running heat or / c, and what size wheels you choose. Teslamotors. Com has a great calculator that allows you to alter all those factors and get ranges for each Model, and for Model S 70 thats drive at 65 mph in 50-degree weather with no heat or / c and with 19-inch wheels, range is 242 miles. Stepping up to 70D trim add another motor for the front wheels, which not only makes this Model S All-wheel drive vehicle, but also increases horsepower to 518, torque to 387 lb-ft, and decrease 0-60 time to 5. 2 seconds. Under the same conditions described above, 70D has a range of 248 miles.
