Tesla so good it broke the rating scale
The Tesla Model S P85D all wheel drive sedan is such an amazing car that it has achieved a statistically ridiculous feat. It managed to score 103 out of 100 in the Consumer Report Ranking.
Helping the car to achieve such an outstanding score is it’s super quick acceleration and forceful thrust. Consumer Reports has stated, “Its near-instant g-forces can otherwise be achieved only by leaping off a building – literally”. Wow.
The P85D model’s acceleration is so rapid that it can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 3.5 seconds.
The all wheel drive sedan performed better in the test than any other car that Consumer Reports has tested previously, and even broke their ratings system.
They revealed, “In rating it, however, we faced a quandary: 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 electric car is pretty pricey with a six-figure price tag, coming in at just over $127,000.
But when you consider the fact that this car is pushing the boundaries of high-performance and fuel-efficiency, the price tag shouldn’t be too surprising.
As per impressive Tesla standards, the car has outstanding braking and handling abilities, and maintains practicality while oozing luxury.
But the car’s 103 out of 100 ranking doesn’t mean it’s the perfect vehicle. As with many electric cars, long road trips can be pretty impractical unless there are charging stations along the way.
Also, the interior might not be considered as opulent as other cars with the same price tag.
But to make up for that, it has a frunk. That’s right, a frunk. Queue mic drop.
