Ludicrous performance

The face of Tesla, Elon Musk, has revealed that the Model S and Model X will receive an innovative new 100kWh battery pack, extending their ranges to 315 and 289 miles, respectively, and cementing them as, by far, the longest-range electric production vehicles. Furthermore, with the aptly titled ‘Ludicrous’ mode engaged, the new Model S P100D is claimed to accelerate from 0-60mph in just 2.5sec, making it the quickest car currently on sale anywhere in the world. For a car that weighs over two tonnes and can seat up to seven people, that’s simply remarkable.
