2014 Tesla Model S vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz S550! - Head 2 Head Ep. 54
On this episode of Head 2 Head, the newest luxury heavyweight takes on the
reigning champ. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has ruled the luxury roost since
it created the segment decades ago. However, Elon Musk's revolutionary
Tesla Model S has single handedly disrupted the established luxury paradigm
and has recently outsold the mighty S-Class. What's most amazing is that
the Model S doesn't use a drop of gas. The S-Class does, but it rewrites
the luxury car playbook in other ways. So which $125K big lux whip is best?
Watch and find out!

Tesla Model S / X: Supercharging a 60kW Battery from Dead, 105kW Charging Rate!!!
Well, proof is in the pudding. With the new 5.8 Firmware, the 60kW Model S
can now supercharge at rates above 70kW. Now, I have been able to charge at
88 kW in the past in Rockford, however, this is the first time I've been
able to exceed that rate. On top of that, a number of people (myself
included) have had issues at the new Mauston Supercharger not being able to get above 66ish kW,
even on the new firmware and regardless of the battery pack size, weather
it be 60 or 85. Well, I arrived in Mauston (barely!!!), and plugged er in.
All I can say is, WOW... My car was just getting BLASTED by those
So #1, the 60kW Model S Charging rate topps of at 105kW. And #2, Mauston's
charging speed issue appears to be fixed.
Now, Tonight, I had the most ideal circumstances possible (in my opinion)
for Supercharging a Model S. #1, Pack was already at full operating temps,
as I had just driven 150ish miles at 70mph to get their. #2, my pack was
dead (0 Rated Miles Remaining), and #3, It was COLD out, 26 degrees, so
cooling was in a fairly decent shape. Could have been colder though, but I
think I got fairly close to perfect charging conditions.
My Pack Cooler, including the Air Conditioning Compressor DID KICK IN! AND
HOLY CRAP! FULL BLAST AS WELL!!! Sounded like a Circular Saw going. Both
cooling fans and both radiators + the AC compressor...... WOW. Even had a
warm breeze coming from the Supercharger
So, why am I typing so much when the point of youtube is to watch the darn
video! So, STOP READING THIS AND WATCH THE VIDEO!

2013 Tesla Model S P85 vs Audi S8 Mile High 0-60 Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Tesla Model S is a game changer in the
world of cars. Not only is it completely electric but it can go up to 300
Miles on a complete charge. The 2013 Tesla Model is also luxurious,
elegant, stylish and expensive. The 2013 Audi S8 is all of those things and
more. It is more luxurious, more powerful and perhaps even faster. We decided to find out in another
fun and informative mile high 0-60 MPH Mashup review. The Audi has more HP
and torque but at a mile above sea level the equation tends to level out as
the Tesla Model S is not effected by the lower air density. So which one is
faster to 60 MPH. Watch the video
and find out.

Tesla Model S VS Bmw M5 2013
I made this video, of 2 great cars, by editing other clips on YT.
The winner for me is the Model S, for reasons beyond the ones you guys can
see (it's a green car, doesn't need 100€ to fill up, etc...)
I think the M5 is better on track, 3 sec or more, at least. But a company
founded in 1917 (BMW) should have an huge advantage, when compared to one
founded in 2003 (Tesla)
Only made this video thxs to:
2012 Tesla Model S Charging
Tesla's electric Model S combines unprecedented driving range and quick
charging times. Thanks to the many different plug adapters, you have
flexibility over how quickly the Model S can charge. Standard Level 1
charging at home can take up to 12 hours, while a special 240v plug can
return up to 30 miles per hour of charging, eliminating the need to install
a costly Level 2 home charging unit. With advanced technology comes issues,
however. Cars.com Reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder takes a look at some of the
grievances that bothered him like the unique door handles, obnoxious
seat-bottom weight sensors and charging port door.
