0 to 60 in 2.5 Seconds, Tesla Reveals the World’s Fastest Production Car

by SpeedLux
Tesla Model S

Tesla‘s Model S was already the fastest four-door sedan. In “Ludicrous Mode,” it had the speediest zero-to 60 jump of any vehicle under $200,000. However this, obviously, wasn’t ludicrous enough.

On Tuesday, Tesla Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk launched a brand-new, 100-kilowatt-hour battery pack for the dual-motor variations of the Model S and Model X. The upgrade makes the Model S the very first all-electric sedan with a variety of over 300 miles, and it cuts the zero-to-60 miles per hour period to only 2.5 seconds. Just a couple of cars can take on that, consisting of LaFerrari and Porsche’s 918 Spyder. Those vehicles, however, are limited-run supercars that are priced at $1.4 million and $845,000.

For the very first time, Musk said, “the fastest car in the world, of any kind, is electrical. In the future, people are really going to look at gasoline vehicles in the very same way we look at steam engines today: They’re quaint, but it’s not really how you get around”.

Here are the specs on the brand-new Model S, which is huge enough to seat five and is readily available now, starting at $134,500.
