Attention Tesla model S P85D owners world-wide:
Dear fellow P85D owner,
As you might have observed from different forums around the world, the Tesla Model S - P85D doesn’t currently perform as stated and advertised by Tesla Motors. For one the acceleration time is about 1/2 a second slower than advertised, secondly the stated 691 HP is nowhere near what different dyno tests have been able to verify. In addition the data from the vehicle itself shows a far too low power consumption to be able to support a 691HP (or 515 kW) performance claim.
With your help we will now start to collect performance data from as many P85D owners as possible world-wide, in order to be able to investigate if this is a problem that goes beyond the vehicles belonging to theP85D owners in Denmark who originally started this case (14 persons). We firmly believe it is a world-wide issue but we want to know for certain and therefore we now open up a more global discussion and data collection.
We have been in contact with Tesla Motors for several months on this issue in order to open up the dialog with the company; however Tesla Motors has so far refused to reply to our formal complaint letters #1 and # 2.
For more information, please refer to:
If you would like to be a part of the world-wide data collection and co-signer of a resulting common complaint letter #3 to Tesla Motors, please sign up on the site with your VIN number, name and e-mail address.
We would like to state here that we are all satisfied with our incredible vehicles in almost every aspect and we are full of admiration for Tesla Motors. We regard ourselves as true ambassadors for Tesla Motors and the Model S and enjoy the attention and discussion that we have with like-minded and „not so like-minded“ people that we meet along the way.
Nonetheless we are disappointed that Tesla Motors has clearly not been able to deliver to us what was (and still is) promised and marketed with regards to the Model S P85D.
Our goal is simply to receive what we have bought and paid for.
On behalf of the 14 Danish P85D users
Torben, Henrik and Ken.
