Tesla's new battery pack is all about going the distance, and being quicker than any mass-produced car has ever been.
Tesla announced new versions of its Model S sedan and Model X crossover Tuesday, with substantially faster acceleration and longer battery range.
The company claims its Model S P100D with Ludicrous mode is the quickest production car in the world, in terms of acceleration. Tesla compared it to the likes of the LaFerrari and the Porsche 918 Spyder, which were accelerated faster, but were limited-run cars, while the Tesla will factory-produced for the general public. The Model S has a 100 kilowatt hour battery, with a 315 mile EPA range.
"I think this is going to send a great message to the public that sustainable transport is the future," CEO Elon Musk said.
