I've written multiple books as well as blog posts and white papers for fortune 50 companies, but please, tell me how I can improve my message board content. Tell me how I might breathe life back into this bygone forum with my eloquence. Please guys, I have a match tonight.

45kwh battery means it’s effectively useless for anything except maybe a 3 lap race or a city commuter. It will however make it to the next stop light faster than a lot of cars.

Give it a chance guys, it is only experimental right now.

As much as I don't like it either, electrification is the future :shrug:

Do tell. Base models of those cars are less right?

the base model is 382hp/325ft-lbs and the p100d goes up to 762hp/730ft-lbs, with more than double the battery size so presumably more than double the range.

^^haha, what I mean is all these automakers coming in 5-6 years behind Tesla with numbers that are inferior. And I don't even mean 0-60. Talking almost entirely about range and charging time.

Just bizarre. I mean look at the new Honda EV hatchback (not being sold in the US, for now). $45k and it's even worse than a Chevy Bolt. Would Honda ever introduce a Civic that's worse than a Chevy Cobalt? haha.

right, and this thing is 710hp/848ft-lbs, so your statement is inaccurate on a number of levels.

and a few more if you consider the X you named:

Quote :
"The two motors that move the Model X are rated at 259 horsepower (193 kilowatts)Performance versions step up to a 503-hp"


p100d steps up to "762 horsepower and 791 lb-ft of torque"

the model X p100d has the same drivetrain as the model S p100d with specs referenced here because tesla's site doesn't list it anymore
https://carbuzz.com/cars/tesla/model-x-p100d

the model X performance has a 259hp motor up front and 503 hp motor in the rear
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tesla_Model_X#Specifications

for the S

[Edited on June 28, 2019 at 11:12 AM. Reason : looks like the story on model S spec isn't completely consistent]

Ok but what % of Model S' produced are the P100d with Ludicrous Mode variety? Pretty damn small number I'm sure. Same for the Model X P100 Performance Editions too

It's a higher percentage than a BMW concept that's not even going into production

i don't know where to find those numbers. they're all software unlocks people can add at any time from the dealer with a p90d base. the point was, if you're trying to entice the market, you have to be ahead of the incumbent somewhere. bmw is precisely ahead nowhere, save maybe styling, which is subjective especially given tesla is seen as a status symbol these days
