2015 Tesla Model S P85D is one of the best stylish car. While most of the electric car enthusiasts eagerly await Tesla’s third experiment, their current lineup is getting better and better by the day. This especially goes for Tesla Motors’ first installment, Model S which still has the same battery options but now also has performance model P85D.
The Engine range
2015 Tesla Model S P85D is actually advanced version of a car with bigger 85 kWh battery pack. In its moniker P stands for performance, 85 is self-explanatory and D stands for dual motor configuration. Indeed, all-wheel drive electric sedan has couple of motors, 221 hp one up front and 470 hp one at the rear axle for a total of incredible 691 ponies and 687 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to this, Model S P85D reaches naught to sixty in 3.2 seconds and despite being more powerful, it also has larger range. This configuration also requires specially designed suspension which it gets.
2015 Tesla Model S P85D Styling
Exterior is still unchanged compared to the last year and besides couple of badges which state dual-motor configuration and all-wheel drive, nothing else sticks out. 2015 Tesla Model S P85D still has oval open-mouth grille with black cover and some sharp aggressive headlights on a low nose. Highly swept-back windshield and arching roofline are making a statement from the profile and touring-like rear end features small carbon fiber spoiler and a chrome garnish which cuts into the tail-lights.
Interior is furbished with high-quality materials and one wouldn’t expect anything else given Model S’ hefty price tag.
Full Nappa leather upholstery and plenty of wood accents can be found all over the cabin, while contemporary-looking dashboard features a huge 17-inch HD touch-screen display which contains all the controls. In fact, you won’t find a single dial or button in Model S as modern vehicles require modern control solutions. Navigation with maps which is included in all models has seven years of free updates, at least in North American markets. Ultra high fidelity sound system consists of 12 strategically placed speakers for best possible performance. 2015 Tesla Model S P85D comes with eight mandatory airbags, anti-lock brakes, stability and traction control and brake assist among others. Rearview camera is also standard and so are parking sensors and parking assist.
Tesla vehicles are really something special as they offer the biggest all-electric range in the entire car industry. 2015 Tesla Model S P85D can take you as far as 285 miles at 65 mph speed. Model S can also be recharged quite fast, especially with optional dual chargers or supercharger. Former charges up to 58 miles of range in an hour, while the latter allows replenishment of half of battery’s power in just 20 minutes.
2015 Tesla Model S P85D Price
Sadly, Model S is available in select few states and select markets around the worls. Waiting period is quite long too and the price is even harder to swallow P85D version costs $105,670, while additional equipment raises the price over $130,000.
2015 Tesla Model S P85D is the quickest of the line sedan around and offers impressive power output. It has great fuel efficiency (being 100% electric car) and extremely large range. Its interior is modern beyond belief and refined in the same manner, but the price you have to pay for one of these is also beyond belief.
