When we think of Tesla, don’t think that electric cars are boring because they are too simple and too futuristic. Tesla packed the Model S so nicely and positively. The white color of the Pearl Multi-Coat seen in the 2017 Tesla Model S P100D is very sparkling when under the hot sun. Futuristic impressions can be seen from the design of the narrow headlamps and small grille.
From the side, the 2017 Tesla Model S P100D looks sturdy with 21-inch alloy wheels in silver color with spokes pattern. Chrome accents on the body add to the elegant impression of this Elon Musk sedan manufacturer. The back looks elegant thanks to the large bumper and LED taillight design and chrome accents on the spoiler.
The interior is very luxurious, like a Mercedes-Benz flagship sedan, S-Class. Although not using ambient light throughout the interior, the black leather material covering the seats and door trim feels like driving a sports car. In the middle of the dashboard, there is a vertical touch screen like a notebook. You can adjust the height of the suspension, steering weight, driving mode and turn off the car through this touch screen.
What is the speed of the 2017 Tesla Model S P100D?
2017 Tesla Model S P100D which is powered by electricity is very responsive starting from the bottom to top speed. Like an electric car, this car does not make a sound, which only sounds like a hiss.
When I added speed by stepping on the gas in full, my head seemed to be thrown back. Put the strength so strong. G-force, when it turns around, feels great when the car turns fast. Semi bucket seats help me provide a little resistance when the body is tilted to the right or left.
Especially when using the “Ludicrous Plus” mode, I was like a fighter jet pilot flying a plane vertically, my head felt slammed. With this mode, the Model S P100D is touted as the third-fastest production car in the world with a sprint capability of 0-100 km / h in just 2.5 seconds. And this is a new record for electric cars or even in the ranks of the sportscar.
With these capabilities, this vehicle is aligned with Audi R8 V10 Plus 2017, Bugatti Chiron 2017, Ford GT 2017, Lamborghini Aventador S 2017 and McLaren 720S 2018. But most cars that are comparable to Model S are supercars with two seats and very small luggage, while the P100D is a four-wheel drive with four doors, seats for five people and large luggage capacity.
2017 Tesla Model S P100D gets power from 100 kWh lithium-ion batteries which in full-charging conditions can travel 506 km. It is further 24 km compared to the Model S 90D and P90D. Its ability to cover distances above 450 km in the category of electric cars (electric vehicle – EV) is an extraordinary breakthrough.
With front and rear drive motors and adopting the AWD system, the power produced at the front is 259 hp, while the rear motor produces 503 hp. The powerful combination of the two motors is 680 hp. While the front torque is 376 Nm, the rear torque is 712 Nm and the front-rear combination is 1073 Nm combined with a 1-speed automatic transmission.
The 2017 Tesla Model S P100D suspension height has three settings namely short, normal and high to make it easier for the driver when driving on the road. Oh yes, keep in mind if we set the position of the high mode suspension can also be changed automatically to the short mode when we are at a speed of 80km / h.
