2017 Tesla Model S P100D In Australia – Video Review

5 months ago by Mark Kane 5

The top of the line Tesla Model S P100D has finally reached Australia, but is damn expensive there – retailing from around $250,000.

2017 Tesla Model S P100D tested by the PerformanceDrive.com.au

PerformanceDrive.com.au noted that latest Tesla Model S is:

  • the most powerful sedan currently on the market (580kW and 1250Nm)
  • quickest production sedan
  • the largest cabins in the luxury sedan class
  • the biggest touch-screen interface ever
  • the safest on the market
  • the most fuel efficient

Overall, the build quality is deemed to come up well short of other high priced sedans, but one expects that will improve as Tesla’s production matures.

“…on first impressions, it is definitely quick. Like, hold-on-for-your-life quick. Seriously gut-wrenching. If you find it difficult to fully wake up in the morning, floor the throttle in this and you’ll be right awake, quick smart.”

    OOC how many years is Tesla going to get a pass for their less than impressive build quality? 5 years in on the same model and they still have problems.

    I’m sincerely asking. Is it another 5 years, 20 years, what??

      You forgot the IN YOUR OPINION part.

      Word has it that the new assembly line set up for the Model 3 has much tighter tolerances and the engineering of the car has benefited from learning from the folder models. That learning will be transferred to the Model S and X assembly lines. But I’m sure you will continue complaining. It’s what you do.
