To disperse hundreds have P85D takes just 3.2 seconds, with top speed limited to 250 km/h (at P85 conventional limit of 210 km/h). Cruising range is increased to 443 km. Regardless of the version, the length of the car Tesla S is 4976 mm, width – 1963 mm, height – 1435 mm. Wheelbase car is 2959 mm. The curb base version weighs kg 2 108, but the older versions will be heavier. The vehicle interior is spacious enough, it does not hurt, and the amount of luggage (an impressive 900 liters).
