Back in 2016, I tested the Tesla Model S P85D to check out Autopilot and Insane Mode. Here I discuss the pros and cons of autonomous vehicles with Mark Murphy on BBC Radio.
Whilst visiting Tesla at their Gatwick Store in 2015, I took the opportunity to interview their UK communications officer, Laura Hardy about Tesla and what it holds for the future.
I have been driving the latest Tesla Model S P85D over the past few days, specifically to experience software update 7.1 and the improvements to Autopilot functionality.
We discussed the technology behind Tesla Autopilot and also the future of autonomous and driverless cars.
Imagine going from 0-60 in 3.2 seconds, powered by a dual motor 690BHP electric car? Now imagine doing that on one of the wettest days of the month?
Well that’s just what happened on Thursday this week!
We were able to spend a very wet hour with the car, but you wouldn’t have noticed. The all wheel drive and very advanced traction control kept the car stuck firmly to the ground.
We also had a tour of the workshops and saw for ourselves what amazing technology is behind the Model S
After our Insane test drive, I spoke to Laura Hardy from Tesla Motors about the P85D and the future for Tesla. Listen to the stream above to find out more!!
