Tesla Model S P85D Insane vs Sport Mode 0-60 MPH Testing

January 6th, 2015

Tesla-P85D-0-60MPH-insane-3.2-secondsThe all new 691 horsepower dual motor all wheel drive Tesla Model S P85D has two modes of acceleration available to choose from, Insane and Sport.  As we’ve seen and tested, INSANE mode is just that, insane, surprising everyone who’s driven or ridden in the car so far with it’s amazing grip, high G Forces and instant torque from a dead stop.

We took the Model S P85D out with a VBOX and GoPro to test out the differences between the Insane and Sport modes from 0-60 MPH.   As you’ll see in the video below, in Insane mode the P85D lived up to it’s hype with a 0-60 MPH time of 3.2 seconds as shown on the VBOX LCD screen, with the actual time coming in at just 3.17 seconds when we pulled up the raw data.

There is no complicated launch control to engage, no traction control to disable,  no power braking, no RPMs to worry about, all you have to do is stomp on the accelerator and off you go, pulling over 1.2 Gs off the line, enough to embarrass and give a hard time to just about any car that might be next to you.

We ran the same test in Sport mode and while the car was noticeable slower, it still managed a respectable 0-60 MPH time of 4.0 seconds, with the actual time coming in at 4.04 seconds from the raw data.  Take a look at the video below along with the two VBOX graphs to compare the G Forces and 0-60 MPH data.
