(VIDEO) Elon Musk details the Tesla Model S (+ Sport version)
During the reveal of the Beta prototypes of the Model S in Fremont, California last weekend, Elon Musk held a press conference in which we detailed the car:
_First of all, its dynamic qualities, designed from a blank sheet, this electric sedan has been 100% designed to be electric, with batteries that take place in the floorplan, in line with the axles, giving the car a very low center of gravity for virtually no body roll, for a sedan that corners flat, like a sports-car.
_Then its exceptional interior space for a performance vehicle with its 7 seats, actually more a 5+2 or 5 real seats with two trunks (the official storage volumes haven’t been revealed yet, but since Sunday we know now that you can fit, two children in the back trunk and one adult in front...)
_Then, after Sunday’s announcement, I'll let you hear from Elon’s words the official reveal of the Sport version specs with a 0 to 100kph in 4.5 sec that will tickle the Porsche 911, not bad for a sedan that welcomes 7 passengers ...
For info and to confirm Elon’s words, 0 to 100kph in 4.5 seconds is better than a 911 Carrera (type 991) which announces 4.8 secs with a manual transmission and exactly the same as a Carrera S…
That (probably) makes (all of) us even more eager to get behind the wheel
