Report – Musk says Tesla P100D vehicles with Ludicrous have performance Easter Egg image

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).
