Electric car manufacturer Tesla unveiled a faster, all-wheel drive version of the Model S at an event in California on Thursday. Tesla CEO Elon Musk revealed that the Model S P85D will be able to accelerate to 60 miles per hour in just 3.2 seconds (one second faster than the last version), traveling up to 275 miles on a single charge. The cost of the new version is $120,170.
电动汽车制造商特斯拉于周四在加州发布了新一代四轮驱动的Model S。特斯拉的首席执行官Elon Musk表示Model S P85D的百公里加速时间在仅仅需要3.2秒 (比上一代快了整整1秒，尼玛)，单次充满电可以行驶约450公里。新版车的售价约为80万人民币（未考虑税率，实际国内售价绝逼过百万，哥只能看看）。
What interested me most is the autopilot implemented in the new version.
In a move that most of the luxury auto market has already made, the car will offer active safety features like adaptive cruise control and the ability to read speed limit signs, stop itself if a crash is imminent, stay in its lane, and even park itself in a street spot or in your garage.
These features are provided thanks to new hardware that will go into future Model S cars. Tesla is adding a radar that can see through fog and snow; a camera with image recognition capability to spot traffic signs and lights, as well as pedestrians; 360-degree ultrasonic sonar; and a system that combines all the data those produce with navigation, GPS, and real-time traffic systems.
The technology behind these systems is likely provided by Daimler, as the two companies have a partnership: Tesla provides batteries for the Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive car. In December 2013, Daimler said it “has cooperated successfully with Tesla for several years and currently intends to broaden and deepen its partnership in the coming years.” Mercedes offers many of these features on its vehicles, and is working to put a self-driving car on the market by 2020.
