"Real-life acceleration test to compare Tesla Model S P85D and P85. Both tests were done on unrestricted German autobahn. The P85D had a slight disadvantage though, but still performed better than P85."

Bjørn Nyland's latest Tesla Model S thriller shows us how fast both 85 kWh Performance models are in a real-life side-by-side comparison.

The frame on the left half in the video above is of the latest P85D (Dual Motor AWD) accelerating to its top speed, while the frame on the right half is of Bjørn's P85 RWD Model S.

Both vehicle tests had pros & cons, as you will hear explained towards the end of the video. Things like different road & tire conditions, & that Bjørn did not mash his accelerator pedal within a split second, while the P85D had a slight incline.
