UltimateRoadtrips Tests Tesla Model S P90D with Ludicrous Mode – Video




After a recent road trip presentation of the Tesla Model S in Scotland (video below), UltimateRoadtrips got its hands on a P90D version with Ludicrous Mode enabled.

As always, a lot of fun is had with casual passengers, and the question is raised whether or not the Model S will be good enough for a Maserati Granturismo driver to switch to electric?

“Following our first EV road trip to Scotland in a Tesla Model S 85, we’re back with a P90D, complete with Ludicrous Mode upgrade to find out whether an electric vehicle can deliver thrills to match a 4 seater performance petrol car like the Maserati Granturismo.

With an incredible 0-60 time of 2.8 seconds, the P90DL is hard to beat. We take family and friends out to get their reactions. The smiles and laughs speak for themselves!

Unlike most videos we’ve seen on YouTube demonstrating Ludicrous Mode, we are activate ‘Max Battery Power’, which pre-conditions the battery temperature for maximum efficiency, and then we’re activating ‘Launch Mode’ to fire the car off the line with roller coaster style viciousness!

Tesla Model S 85 from Essex to Scotland roadtrip bonus:

“Can you drive a Tesla Model S from Essex to Scotland without charging being an inconvenience? We find out! We also try out the latest Autopilot features and get the chance to test drive the ludicrously fast, range-topping P90D in Edinburgh. Enjoy!”

    I liked the space-balls scene.. But after they went back to the car and everyone was screaming.. they should have cut back to the spaceballs scene and showed Dark Helmet holding on for dear life!

    “I can’t imagine not having that noise in my life”.

    Get a headset and play back a recording while you drive. While at it you can breathe smog from a can to complete the experience.

      Some people in the South, when asked to free their African Slaves, lamented similarly…

      It just takes time for progress to sink in and flourish.

    Kinda cool, but I can’t help noticing the medevial gender roles… in both videos it is only ever men who drive, while the women are mostly confined to the rear seat and appear to function only as decoration (and the girl was indeed very pretty). Slighly embarrassing in 2016 isn’t it?!?

    They are charging way too much… hence the 50-60 minute charge times.
