Chill is no joke. It's chill. Like really chill.
Tesla's new chill mode, which eases acceleration so you don't get slammed into the seat back every time you accelerate away from a light, really does transform the car into a relaxed accelerator.
Recently, DragTimes set out to test this new mode and the results are more chill than you'd expect.
The whole DragTimes video isn't chill though. It starts off with some hard runs in the 100D (not the Performance version). Those runs result in 0 to 60 MPH times of 3.8, 3.7 and 3.59 seconds.
When chill mode was tested, the same run took about twice as long at 7.2 seconds.
We test out the updated Tesla Model S 100D and get an very impressive 0-60 MPH time that is WAY quicker than what Tesla states and almost as quick as the BMW M5 and MB E63 AMG.
We also test out the all new "Chill" acceleration mode to see what it's all about.
