40 kWh - 6.5sec
60 kWh - 5.9sec
85 kWh - 5.6sec
Performance 85kWh - 4.4sec
100kWh - ???
So with the performance version they allow more peak wattage to the motor to allow for greater burst of acceleration. And with increased kWh battery pack you see better speed performance.
So in the future... If I upgrade my battery pack, to the newer 100+ kWh battery pack, could my "old Model S" see a new performance boost? I'm not sure how this all works out, but could be a huge perk to owner that keep their car in good shape and upgrade the battery pack down the road if Tesla build ones that can be swapped out!
