Tesla Model S P85D In The Snow – Video


Here’s a brief video that shows the all-wheel-drive, dual-motor Tesla Model S P85D accelerating in the snow.

It’s not a snow test drive, or a winter testing video.  Rather, you’ll briefly see the P85D blast down a road with barely a coating of snow.

The video quality is far from top-notch and we’re still eager to see what the P85D can do when the snow really starts to fall, but at least we get a glimpse here at how the P85D might fare when there’s more white powder coming down.

      It’s the new hotness haven’t you heard? 2,804 EPA ranted range.

      P985D is the 3000-mile Tesla!

    Really? Kind of silly.

    Can you hit a button and raise the car for cases of deep snow?

    1. Kacey Green says:

      Yes, if you have the active site suspension option

    So… accelerating like a bullet through an enclosed tent and then onto a public street is a good idea?

      It was in Montreal and the streets were closed by the police on purpose.

        …at the opening of the biggest Tesla Store of the continent.

        1. LuStuccc says:

          And up here we don´t call this “in the snow”.

      2. Kosh says:

        The streets didn’t look closed when the car crossed in front of them…. 😉

    Am I the only person tiring of 0-60 videos?

    Show me 0-5 mph in 1 foot of standing snow. THAT is why I lust after an AWD EV.

    Even Bjorn who makes a billion mostly great videos hasn’t shown a single video of his tesla in a blizzard.

    Also, please don’t ever accelerate like that in winter. It’s extremely dangerous. Especially the 60 to 0 part.

    Looks like a similar setup from the P85D’s launch party. Not on an airstrip and no automated driving course after the acceleration.
