It’s the pair that won’t stop racing, the rivalry continues with this 707 HP Challenger Hellcat taking on the Tesla Model S P100D for a heads up race at the StreetCarDrags.com event.
The Tesla Model S is a full-sized all-electric five-door, luxury liftback, produced by Tesla Inc., and introduced in June 2012. It scored a perfect 5.0 NHTSA automobile safety rating, and, as of March 2017, the P100D variant holds the record for the fastest acceleration of any production vehicle with a NHRA rolling start to 60 mph in Motor Trend tests with 2.28 seconds, although other independent tests have placed it behind the Porsche 918 Spyder. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) official range for the 2017 Model S 100D, which is equipped with a 100 kWh (360 MJ) battery pack, is 335 miles (539 km), higher than any other electric car at the time. The EPA rated the 2017 90D Model S’s energy consumption at 200.9 watt-hours per kilometer (32.33 kWh/100 mi or 20.09 kWh/100 km) for a combined fuel economy of 104 miles per gallon gasoline equivalent (2.26 L/100 km or 125 mpg‑imp).
In 2016, Tesla updated the design of the Model S to closely match that of the Model X. As of April 2017, the following versions are available: 75, 75D, 90D, 100D, and P100D. Owners of the earlier 70 and 70D Model S have the option to unlock the 75 kWh capacity via a software update, adding up to 19 miles (31 km) per charge. The 60 and 60D Model S, reintroduced in June 2016, had a US$9,000 option to unlock the full 75 kWh capacity via a software update any time after purchase. In August 2016, Tesla introduced the P100D as the new top-level model. The P100D model has a 100 kWh battery, a 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) time of 2.28 seconds with roll out, a 2.5 without and over 300 miles (485 km) of EPA rated range.
The Model S became the first electric car to top the monthly new car sales ranking in any country, twice leading in Norway, in September and December 2013; and also in Denmark in December 2015. Global Model S sales passed the 150,000 unit milestone in November 2016, with the U.S. as the leading market with 57% of global sales. Other leading country markets are Norway, China, Hong Kong, the Netherlands, Canada, Denmark, Germany, and Switzerland. (from Wiki)
