Carsome has released a teaser video of a Tesla Model S in Malaysia along with the caption that goes, “That’s the sound of the car of the future coming your way. Futuristically designed and loaded with digital technology, get ready to say hello to your next car with peace of mind soon. Stay tuned for more.”
Details such as pricing and exact specifications are unknown at the moment. Though from the video, it shows a Model S P100D, which has been discontinued globally and replaced by the Model S Plaid.
It has a 100-kWh battery pack with an NEDC range of 613 km. The dual-motor (one on each axle, making it all-wheel drive) generates a total of 680 PS/950 Nm and propels the car from 0-100 km/h in 2.7 seconds.
Currently, EVs (only battery-electric BEV ones) sold in Malaysia are subjected to a lower 10 percent excise tax rate compared to combustion-engine cars (normal rate is 60 to 105 percent), but the 30 percent import duty remains.
The quest for automotive knowledge began as soon as the earliest memories. Various sources information, even questionable ones, have been explored including video games, television, magazines, or even internet forums. Still stuck in that rabbit hole.
