Tesla Model S P90D to enter Pikes Peak Hill Climb

By ,

A Tesla Model S P90D will compete in the legendary Pikes Peak Hill Climb for the first time ever next month. It is so far the fifth electric car to register for the event’s 100th edition, but the only one in the production class, according to InsideEVs

Actually, this Tesla Model S P90D will use a slightly modified battery pack for lighter weight. Of course, since the climb is only 19.9 kilometres long, range shouldn’t be an issue.

The driver, Blake Fuller, has said he wants to break the record for electric cars at the Pikes Peak Hill Climb, set in 2014 by a Honda Fit EV (12:55:591 minutes). 
Last year, the fastest overall car completed the course in 9:07:222 minutes. 

Will the Tesla Model S P90D crush the existing mark for EVs? How close will it get to the best time ever recorded (Sebastien Loeb’s 8:13:878 minutes set in 2008)? Time to bet!
