Tesla Model X P90D might be even faster than Tesla’s own Ludicrous estimates (video)


Dragtimes has its first P90D Ludicrous 0-60/100 MPH video up and the numbers they got beat Tesla’s already impressive estimates…

The video below doesn’t show conditions (did they run downhill or something?) but Dragtimes notes that the 7-seat car they tested has every option including the Ludicrous mode and Launch Control. Tesla Says:

Model X has ample seating for seven adults and all of their gear. And it’s ludicrously fast, accelerating from zero to 60 miles per hour in as quick as 3.2 seconds.  Model X is the SUV uncompromised.

Dragtimes said they were able to get a 3.17 0-60 speed which beats Tesla’s own estimates by a few hundredths of a second. Their 0-100 speed of under 8 seconds beats the P85D and many other supercars out there.

As a comparison, the 2016 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S which retails for $160K, hits 0-60 in 3.8 seconds.

    Can’t wait to see the “Model X vs [put your favorite sports car here] drag race” videos… as if a large sedan wasn’t enough, now we will have an SUV beating the crap out of muscle cars.

      I can’t wait for the comments saying that the driver of xyz muscle car was asleep at the wheel, an idiot etc. That’s why it keeps getting beaten by a Tesla.

    Very Nice but still no Model S P90D Ludicrous owners have achieved the 10.9s 1/4 mile time that Tesla claims. Quickest I’ve heard is 11.3s.
    Being 4/10ths behind at the 1/4 is a LONG ways behind.
