We've recently driven the Tesla Model S P100D and the Tesla Model X P100D electric vehicles. These are the quickest versions of both cars and are powered by a 100 kWh battery pack and comes with a dual electric motor setup which effectively gives them all-wheel drive and torque vectoring capabilities.
The Tesla Model S P100D is the quickest accelerating four-door car in the world. It gets from 0 to 100 kmph in 2.9s and onto a top speed of more than 250 kmph. The sedan, with this high capacity battery, also has an impressive range of 500km.
The Model X P100D SUV, on the other hand, gets to 100 kmph in 3.1s and onto 250 kmph. The SUV goes 465km on a full charge. The EV can be specified in 5,6 and 7-seater configurations.
Other than this, both vehicles get a full suite of driver aids and semi-autonomous driving capability. The interior design is minimalistic but dominated by an Ipad-style 17-inch touchscreen.
See how these cars are quite special and not something you're likely to see in the country anytime soon, we've put down an image gallery below

The Model S' claim to fame is its acceleration and silent ferocity. It accelerates from 0 to 100kmph in 2.5 seconds and has a range of 500km too

Similar to smartphone updates, over-the-air software updates add functionality, enhance performance, and improve the driving experience over time

Tesla Model X P100D
Like the Models, the Model X gets a 100 kWh battery paired with a dual motor setup. The batteries are placed under the floor and between the axles to keep the centre of gravity low
The SUV, by way of its unique EV architecture, is spacious and comes in 5, 6 and 7 seater options
