While we impatiently wait for our Tesla Model S P100D Ludicrous to arrive from Tesla, we had the awesome opportunity to test out what is mostly likely the first P100D to be delivered. A Tesla enthusiast family with 5 Teslas took delivery of their P100D in Palm Beach Florida and headed right over for us to take a look as well as do the first set of real world performance tests.
First up was to hit the supercharger to top off the charge where the Tesla and check the power output using the Power Tools App with the P100D peaking out at 567 kW which converts to an astounding 760 HP. Previous test data on the latest P90D Ludicrous refresh hit 500-512 kW, so this puts the P100D with around a 70-90HP peak gain over it’s predecessor.
This P100D was configured with the standard 19″ wheels with all season 245/45/19″ tires and no panoramic roof. Other options included autopilot, premium upgrades package and ultra high fidelity sound. Weight came in at 4,945 pounds. After topping off the charge again with the Tesla showing 317 miles of range, we setup the Racelogic Performance Box and proceeded to test out just how quick the new Tesla is.
0-60 MPH came in at 2.54 seconds with 0-100 MPH in 6.5 seconds and a 1/4 mile time of 10.7 @ 124.5 MPH.
