How Does Tesla’s P85D Compare Against The Audi RS7, BMW M6 GC, & Mercedes CLS63 AMG?

How does the Tesla Model S P85D compare to other cars in its class, such as the Audi RS7, BMW M6 GC, & Mercedes CLS63 AMG?

Tesla P85D

Good question — and one that’s aided and simplified to a good degree by a wonderful side-by-side comparison of the Audi RS7, BMW M6 GC, & Mercedes CLS63 AMG that just came to my attention. While the comparison doesn’t include Tesla P85D specs, we can easily access those here. Not the same number of stats, but has the key ones, which are listed here for you convenience:

Tesla P85D 2014 Audi RS7 2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG S-model
Cost $105,670 $130,000 $145,155 $125,285
0-60 mph 3.2 seconds 3.4 seconds 3.5 seconds 3.2 seconds
Top Speed 155 mph 190 mph 190 mph 186 mph
Efficiency Awesome Sucks Sucks Sucks

The side-by-side comparison concept actually came to our attention via the Tesla Motors Club forum, so a tip of the hat to the user commasign over there.

Not that we didn’t know it already, but it is always nice to see the P85D’s great performance for its cost made clear. 🙂

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
