With the new Dual Motor all-wheel drive system the Tesla Model S P85D still has all the thrust needed to impress all comers with its insane acceleration.
Last week Tesla opened the doors on its largest showroom to date, this one opening in Montreal, Canada. The timing couldn’t be better, as the first deliveries of the all-wheel drive Dual Motor Model S have begun in the past week, and few places can appreciate four-wheel motivation more than Montreal. One of the highlights of the grand oepning was a test drive is the 691 horsepower Model S P85D, which can zip from 0 to 60 MPH in a scant 3.2 seconds, all the way to a top speed of 155 MPH. While not as fast as some supercars, it’s plenty of fast for most of Montreal.
Tesla’s electric super sedan isn’t slowed down in the least by snow either, as the white stuff fell during the grand opening event. But the P85D plowed ahead all the same, its dual electric motors gripping the road with unparalleled ease, a feature sure to be appreciated in a place where it snows on average 59 days a year, with annual snow accumulations averaging over 6.5 feet.
The Tesla Model S P85D; fun in the sun and the snow.
