Tesla Model S Performance

The quickest acceleration of any production sedan on earth - from 0 to 62 mph in 2.6 seconds.

Quickest acceleration

Model S sets an industry standard for performance and safety. Tesla’s all-electric powertrain delivers unparalleled performance in all weather conditions – with Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive, adaptive air suspension and ludicrous acceleration.

Black Tesla Model S Performance

Drivetrain and Performance

The Tesla Model S Performance is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Tesla Model S Performance is 451 kW (605 hp). The maximum torque is 687 lb-ft. The Tesla Model S Performance is all wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 2.6 seconds. The top speed is 162 mph.

Battery and Charging

The battery of the Tesla Model S Performance has a total capacity of 100 kWh. The usable capacity is 95 kWh (estimate). A range of about 315 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.

For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 230 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 455 mi.

Energy Consumption

The combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Tesla Model S Performance is about 300 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 134 mpg in a traditional petrol car.

The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 410 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 205 Wh per mile.

CO2 Emission

The Tesla Model S Performance emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the car itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the electric car driving experience like?

As they have no gearbox, clutch or combustion engine, electric cars offer a smoother and quieter ride than petrol or diesel cars.  Their lower centre of gravity and different 'skateboard' chassis mean easier handling and greater flexibility too.  Instant torque and a simpler powertrain give electric cars the advantage when it comes to taking off from a stop position.  This means that 0-60 figures can be exceptional and hill starts are never a problem.  Some of the fastest cars in the world are electric.

What are the running costs like for an electric car?

Running costs are far cheaper than those for a car with a traditional petrol or diesel engine.  When it comes to charging, a rough estimate (which assumes you charge your electric car at home at the cheapest overnight rate) puts the cost of charging a fully electric car at 2p per mile compared with 16p per mile for the average petrol or diesel car.  However, charging costs will be even cheaper, of course, if you use your FREE zeVie charging card at your chosen provider's public charging stations or take advantage of the free charging offered at some supermarkets, workplaces, shopping centres and elsewhere.  As electric cars have far fewer moving parts than traditional cars, they will also be far cheaper to service and repair and are far less likely to break down.  The numerous government incentives on offer also make an electric car cheaper to run.  These include free parking in many places and exemptions from Road Tax and Congestion Charges.

How long do electric cars last?

Electric car manufacturers are now offering warranties of up to eight years and 100,000 miles for batteries.  Some predictions give electric batteries a lifespan of at least 200,000 to 300,000 miles. 

How many chargers are there nationwide?

The network of electric car chargers in the UK is extensive and growing rapidly by the day.  At the time of writing there are over 10,330 public charging locations in the UK with more than 28,000 connectors.  Approximately 25 new charging stations are currently being installed every day.*
