Tesla Model S P85D Breaks Consumer Report's Rating System

Tesla Model S P85D scores 103 points in Consumer Report's 100 point rating system.

Well respected Consumer Reports has announced today that the Tesla Model S P85D is so good that their rating system broke down. The Tesla Model S P85D scored 103 of 100 points possible.

The Model S P85D set a new benchmark and Consumer Reports had to make changes to its scoring system.

Despite reaching more than 100 points the car has its imperfections. The high price tag of $127,820 should account for a more opulent interior and the 200-plus range can be problem on lengthy trip. Driving slow can though double the 200 mile range as reported yesterday

Consumer Reports highlights the fact that the P85D goes from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, which is of course draining the battery.

Consumer Reports says: "Tesla Model S P85D is an automotive milepost. It’s a remarkable car that paves a new, unorthodox course, and it’s a powerful statement of American startup ingenuity."

Consumer Reports made the full Tesla P85D test available for free here.

Looks like Elon Musk did not see the report yet as he has not tweeted it yet. Update: Elon Musk tweeted about it. Champaign is flowing at Telsa HQ.

Tesla is set to reveal their next car with the Model X SUV. For 2017 Elon Musk promises an affordable Tesla with long range named Model 3.
