tesla-motors-p85dTesla have announced the new variant of their model S range, the Model S D series. The D standing for Dual motor, this turns the model S into and all wheel drive car that ca go from 0-100kph in 3.2 seconds. But that is not all that they bring to this new car, they are also introducing their new autopilot feature. The autopilot is similar to an active cruise control except with some added extras. It will follow and match the speed of a car in front of it all the way down to a complete stop, it will also keep you inside your land and with one tap of the indicator will change lane for you. It also has the ability to read the road speed signs and adjust its speed accordingly. Tesla is once again showing what can be done with an electric car and that they don’t have to be boring cars to live with if you want to be eco friendly.

Here is a demo if its 0-100 run and autopilot in action, thanks to Slashgear.

  1. Fantastic technology but don’t hold your breath hoping to buy one here. Tesla are setting up shop across the ditch but cars will not be supplied to NZ.
    It almost seems there is a plot to stop EV uptake in NZ. Stupid since all our oil is imported and we have renewable sources for electricity. Of the 21 models of 100% electric cars, only 2 are sold here. We should have a better choice of electric daily commute and cheaper gas for the V8 to do those weekend road trips.
