About Tesla Model S 85D

The Tesla Model S 85D is an all-electric all-wheel drive liftback. It came out in 2015. Tesla stopped making the 85D in 2016 and replaced it with the Tesla Model S 90D (2016). You can still find Tesla Model S 85D on the used car market, with prices starting around $15,997.

The Tesla Model S 85D has a 85 kWh battery pack, allowing it to travel up to 258 mi on a single charge. The car has an average efficiency of 31.3 kWh per 100 miles (or 313 Wh/mile) — ranked №210 out of 586 electric vehicles.

Frequently Asked Questions

How fast is Tesla Model S 85D

The Tesla Model S 85D is equipped with a powertrain that delivers up to 311 kW (417 hp) of power and 487 lb-ft of torque.

This enables a 0 to 60 mph acceleration in 4.2 seconds (ranked №108 out of 596 electric vehicles) and a top speed of 155 mph.

Real-world range of Tesla Model S 85D

The estimated real-world range for Tesla Model S 85D falls between 232–284 miles, ranking it №210 out of 596 electric vehicles. Several conditions can influence this range:

  • Speed: The battery drains faster at higher speeds.
  • Temperature: Extreme temperatures can impact range.
  • Terrain: Range is reduced on hilly or mountainous terrain.
  • Driving style: Aggressive driving behaviors, such as frequent acceleration and braking, decrease efficiency.
  • Feature utilization: Climate control and media system usage also affect range.

These figures are approximations, and your actual driving range may vary. When planning trips, consider these factors and be prepared for potential charging stops.

For trip planning assistance, utilize the EV Navigation interactive map.

Tesla Model S 85D charge port type?

The Tesla Model S 85D in the USA is equipped with a Tesla charging port. You can charge it conveniently at home using a standard outlet, or utilize any public AC charging station with the appropriate cable. However, the car's built-in charger (inverter) limits the maximum AC charging speed to 10 kW, which translates to roughly 29 miles of range added per hour.

For faster charging, use DC fast-charging stations. The Tesla Model S 85D supports a maximum DC charging rate of 120 kW, but it's important to note that battery temperature and current charge level can affect the actual charging speed you'll experience.

To estimate charging time, rate, and cost, you can use Green Cars Compare Charging Calculator.
