Performance Data for 85KWh and P85 KWh

Performance Data for 85KWh and P85 KWh

This from the Motor Trend website announcing the COY, first number is for standard 85KWh battery, second is for Performance 85 KWh. If you were having angst about buying a standard 85KWh battery, sleep a little better tonight - 0-60 in 5.0 seconds. Cool.

0-30 2.3; 1.7 sec
0-40 3.1; 2.4
0-50 4.0; 3.1
0-60 5.0; 4.0
0-70 6.1; 5.0
0-80 7.4; 6.3
0-90 8.9; 7.7
0-100 10.8; 9.5
PASSING, 45-65 MPH 1.9; 1.7

I didn't realize the Performance braking distance is that much better. Why is it?

Probably the wider and stickier 21 inch tires.

Chris25 | November 13, 2012

Yup. Summer vs all season tires.

At least in Canada you can get 21" tires on a standard 85Kwh car.

Volker.Berlin | November 14, 2012

Based on the tire specification on the Specs page, I don't think the tires on the 21" rims are any wider than those that come with the 19-inchers. Both seem to be 245 mm. The tread pattern and the material is certainly different, though.

The cars I've driven sure seem faster, I think it's the silence.

Great info. I am sure they ran acceleration and breaking more than once and probably averaged multiple runs to come up with these results. 2 points; (1) If they did multiple runs and averaged--it is likely they had at least one sub 4 second run, and (2) this makes it much harder to decide between the performance and non=performance models, ie.-- is one second worth the extra 10K?

@SD Supercharger,

I believe in another thread we tried to price the cost per second. Remember, however, that if you were going to buy Active Air, leather seats, and 21" wheels anyway (non-Sig), the added cost is a lot less than $10k. As I recall, it is only $4500 more to get Performance.

And going beyond that gets real pricey. Diminishing returns per $10K!

markapeterman | November 15, 2012


Actually $9K more with same options.

DouglasR | November 15, 2012


You're right. Sorry. I was thinking it was $10k difference, but offset by $3500 wheels, $1500 suspension, and $1500 leather heated seats. But the original price difference is more than $10k. Still, I get $8500 difference, not $9000, when I add it up. I must be missing something.

That's great news! Thanks for the post!
