On Tuesday, Tesla Motors unveiled it’s new 100-kWh battery packs, dubbed the “P100D,” ushering in a new era for electric vehicles. The new battery packs are currently available for the Model S and Model X.
The P100D installed on a Model S increases it’s range to an EPA estimated 315 miles per charge. It’s the first electric car to pass the 300 mile mark. This also makes the Model S the longest range electronic vehicle ever produced.
Even more impressive, The Model S P100D with Ludicrous mode is the third fastest accelerating production car ever produced. It can reach 60 miles per hour in just 2.5 seconds. That puts the all electric Model S right behind the hybrid LaFerrari and Porsche 918 Spyder. Of course, Tesla’s Model S is a full size luxury car that seats 5 adults, plus 2 children. Just try that in a Ferrari.
