Tesla's first batch of Model S units head to Malaysia

Tesla's first batch of Model S units head to Malaysia

Sources report that the first lot of Tesla vehicles, due to arrive in Malaysia shortly, will be of the facelifted version of the Model S that was introduced earlier this year.

Reports have suggested that this batch of Tesla vehicles will consist of 10 units which primarily comprise of the S70 rear-wheel drive, and one P90D unit with an all-wheel drive. While the S70 is powered by an electric motor that makes 315bhp and 440Nm, it can hit 100kmph in 5.8sec and go on to register a 230kmph top speed. On the other hand, the P90D makes 504bhp and 931Nm, and can propel the car to 100kph in 3.3sec, and hit a top speed of 249kmph.

This batch of Tesla cars is being brought into Malaysia through a special programme that was provisioned by the government to give a duty-free experience, and encourage the sale of electric vehicles. On the whole, it is appreciable that governments across the world have resorted to promote such environment friendly prospects, and make an effort to influence buyers to make that shift to electric vehicles.
