Tesla is currently reshaping its model line with the demise of the P90D model, as well as introducing new features – such as a glass roof – but apparently that’s not all fans get.
This is because both the Model S P100D (already the quickest sedan in the world) and the Model X P100D could become the fastest vehicles in series production on the planet. These are the flagship models – costing more than an arm and a leg – and when fitted with the ludicrous “Ludicrous” mode they are insanely fast. The Model S sprints to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 2.5 seconds (0 to 100 kilometers per hour in 2.7 seconds) – which is hypercar territory. The Model X P100D – which is a heavyweight at almost 5,400 pounds (over 2,400 kilograms), reaches 60 mph in a mere 2.9 seconds (100 km/h in 3.1 seconds).
Now Tesla CEO Elon Musk has used his usual Twitter feed to hint there’s even more: “Forgot to mention there will be a P100D Ludicrous Easter egg soon that uncorks the full performance.” While going to extremes when it comes to performance, both aren’t willing to sacrifice mileage. The Model S can last – according to the EPA – 315 miles in one go, while the Model X can go 289 miles (613 km and 542 km, respectively, on the NEDC cycle).
