The Tesla Model S P90D is a great family cruiser, that’s comfortable, refined and – as an electric-only car – extremely quiet. It’s also blessed with a capacity for ballistic acceleration, with four-wheel-drive offering superb traction thanks to its front and rear twin electric motor powertrain. It may be an electric eco-warrior of sorts, but the P90D is also the fastest four-door on the planet. With optional Ludicrous Mode selected, Tesla claims it will shred tarmac on the way from 0-62mph in just 2.8 seconds. Although it’s a heavy car, the Model S corners with little body roll and an enormous amount of grip, so it’s not just about being fast in a straight line. The downside, of course, is that you have to plug it in and charge it up to go anywhere, which limits the car’s usability – especially if you like to make long journeys on the spur of the moment.
