Tesla Model S P85D Breaks Consumer Reports’ Rating System
The Tesla Model S P85D has achieved the perfect score in the Consumer Reports' Rating System. The all-wheel drive sedan has performed better than any other car ever has, according to Consumer Reports. It is so good that it has broken the rating system in the process, by achieving a score of 103 out of a 100.
As per Consumer Reports:
"The Tesla initially scored 103 in the Consumer Reports' Ratings system, which by definition doesn’t go past 100, the car set a new benchmark, so we had to make changes to our scoring to account for it."
The Car Is Overall Better Than Any Other Car Ever Tested By Consumer Reports
The Tesla P85D obviously had to be given a score of 100 as the rating system doesn’t go past that. The main reason behind the record breaking score by the Model S P85D is Tesla’s 'Insane Mode,' which the company incorporated into this model. The Insane Mode brings the car’s acceleration level on par with some of the world’s fastest supercars, with the P85D reaching a speed of 60 miles an hour in just 3.5 seconds which was one of the fastest ever recorded by Consumer Reports.
Although there are other ‘faster’ cars available in the market, but none of them are as efficient as this one and that is because Consumer Reports said that the vehicle was zippy and “ridiculously energy efficient” as well, thus the top position.
"This electric car accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds without an engine’s roar makes it frighteningly eerie in its silent velocity. It’s so explosively quick that Tesla has created an “insane” driving mode." stated Consumer Reports.
The P85D is, like most Tesla cars, expensive. Bearing a six figure price tag is proof that only a lucky individual will be able to experience this monster car. This car pushes the boundaries of both performance and energy efficiency, but it still isn’t the perfect car according to Consumer Reports, despite getting a solid score of 100.
The car maintains both luxury and practicality, and has better braking and handling than the standard Model S. The interior isn’t as good as you would find in other high-end cars and it also has a louder and firmer ride than the Model S. But past all this, the car is great!
Consumer Reports also reminds people that driving electric cars can be quite tricky and troubling when you have to take a long journey and there aren’t any charging stations along the way.
But with that said, Consumer Reports concluded by saying:
.The Tesla Model S P85D is an automotive milepost.
