Uw Autopilot is er

Het inzetten op de ontwikkeling en verbetering van technologieën die zelfrijdende auto's mogelijk maken is één van de kerndoelen van Tesla. In oktober vorig jaar zijn we begonnen de Model S van hardware te voorzien om de eerste stappen op weg naar zelfrijdende technologie te introduceren: een radar voorin, 12 ultrasonische lange-afstands-sensoren, die in alle richtingen en op elke snelheid zo’n 5 meter rondom de auto om zich heen kunnen kijken, een camera die vooruit kijkt en een zeer nauwkeurig, digitaal aangestuurd, elektrisch remassistentiesysteem. Met de nieuwe Tesla 7.0 software-release kunnen deze hulpmiddelen tal van actieve veiligheids- en comfort-features bieden, die ontworpen zijn om samen te werken met de zelfrijdende mogelijkheden die de Model S al biedt.

Tesla All Wheel Drive (Dual Motor) Power and Torque Specifications

Attempting to directly correlate horsepower ratings in petroleum burning vehicles to horsepower in an electric vehicle is a difficult challenge. The physics of an electric vehicle propulsion system are very different from a gasoline one. In an EV, electrochemical reactions in the lithium ion cells create electricity. That electricity flows through power electronics that control the voltage and current, then it flows to electromagnets in the motor that create powerful magnetic fields rotating the shaft to turn the wheels. The power required to rotate this shaft has the most correlation to traditional measures of horsepower. However, the chain actually begins in the electrochemical reactions that happen in the battery pack. Depending on the battery's temperature, state of charge and age, the amount of electricity extracted can vary widely.

Introducing the All-Wheel Drive Model S 70D

Today, we are introducing the Model S 70D, an all-wheel drive electric car with a 0-60 time of 5.2 seconds and a 240 mile range at 65 mph.

Even at a starting price of $75k, the Model S 70D offers a broad and compelling set of features. Moreover, when one factors in the cost advantages over an internal combustion engine vehicle, including fuel savings and incentives, the actual cost of owning Model S 70D comes to about $55k over five years (the average length of new car ownership).

Model S Has You Covered

Most cars don't improve over time. By contrast, Model S gets faster, smarter, and better as time passes. With Tesla's regular over-the-air software updates, Model S actually improves while you sleep. When you wake up, added functionality, enhanced performance, and improved user experience make you feel like you are driving a new car. We want to improve cars in ways most people didn't imagine possible.

2,000 Superchargers

Last week Tesla reached a milestone of 2,000 Superchargers worldwide, located at almost 400 Supercharger Stations in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Tesla Superchargers enable free long distance electric driving across the United States, and up and down the West and East Coasts. They connect the United Kingdom to continental Europe and stretch from the south of France to northern Norway, far up into the Arctic Circle. In China, Superchargers link major cities along the coast, and we recently opened Supercharger stations in Japan and Australia.

Roadster Road Trip Update: San Jose to Los Angeles on a Single Charge

The Roadster 3.0 package applies what we've learned from Model S to Roadster. No new Model S battery pack or major range upgrade is expected in the near term.

On the one-year anniversary of Tesla’s Cross Country Rally, we set out to drive non-stop from San Jose to Los Angeles on a single charge in a prototype of the Roadster 3.0 upgrade.

Driving Range for the Model S Family

As the Model S family has expanded over time it has become more relevant to compare range from one variant to another with a consistent set of assumptions so our customers can know what to expect and make the best decision to fit their needs. This can be a bit difficult since the background test methodology and standards from the US EPA are evolving over time. There are also many customer vehicle configuration choices, both before and after purchase, that can affect range as much as or more than the vehicle platform choice itself.
