Here are some fascinating facts that we were shocked to discover most people are not aware of when talking about Tesla. Did you know about all these interesting tidbits?
- Model S P100D is the fastest production sedan on the planet
- It goes 0 to 60 mph or 0 to 100 km/h in 2.2 seconds
- It stops from 60 mph to 0 or 100 km/h to 0 in the same time
- This makes it the only production sedan in the world that stops as fast as it gets to 100 kmh
- It does a 1/4 mile in 10.5 seconds
- Its top speed is 155 mph or 250 km/h
- The launch control (Ludicrous mode) actually creates 1.4 G-force!
- Jumping out of a plane in free fall creates 1G and launching a La Ferrari or P1 Maclaren creates 1.2 G’s
- The Model S is the safest vehicle ever tested and it actually broke NHTSA’s testing machines
- The Model X is the safest SUV ever tested and it was near impossible to make it roll over
- This is due to the large ‘crumple zone’ in the front due to the lack of an engine, the low centre of gravity due to the battery on the bottom, the lowest drag coefficient of any vehicle making it near impossible to flip and the perfect weight distribution that is also achievable due to the lack of a heavy engine in the front or back of other cars. The battery base also acts as a large absorber to any hits from the sides
