It’s been about 2 years since we dyno tested our Tesla Model S P85D so we figured it was time to head back to see Jack at HPLogic to see how much power our new Model S P100D with Ludicrous Plus is making.
The first few tests were coming in pretty low due to the car pulling back power while throwing up some error codes. The Tesla’s sensors were detecting that the car was not actually moving while the wheels were spinning, causing the car to stop accelerating on the dyno. The first result was around 450 ft lbs of torque. After some experimenting with different settings and start speeds we were able to get the Tesla to make power throughout the test with a top result of 920.37 ft lbs of torque and 588 horsepower to all 4 wheels.
These results were obtained at a 88% state of charge along with some wheel spin during the test where the numbers were peaking. We’re thinking the numbers could be a bit higher (950+ ft lbs) with a higher state of charge and no wheel spin on the dyno. We should also note that the max power indicated by the Tesla for the dyno runs was 525 kW, well below the 574 kW we see on the street. This would indicate the HP reading on the dyno was about 63HP down from normal and torque could have been effected as well.
