Tesla Unveils The D

It sounds weird to say, but I think I’m in love with the Tesla Model S. Elon Musk has just revealed the D that he hinted at a few days ago, and the D in this case is Dual Motor. Elon Musk explains about this in his reveal presentation, shown above, and Wired have a small article on it too. I love the new “insane” mode, which allows the Model S P85D to go from 0 – 60 in 3.2 seconds. That is literally insane.

As well as Dual motor, Elon Musk talks about the new autopilot hardware in all new cars. Just like the insane mode, this reveal is amazing. It consists of four parts, all working in tandem to allow the car to practically drive itself. It can even self-park. It really is a car of the future, and I love it.

Now all I need to be is rich so I can afford one… Onwards!

Below the break is a short video by Robert Llewellyn about his road trip to Edinburgh in a Tesla Model S, where he gushes about it. It’s great.
