It is likely that the ‘Ludicrous’ driving mode will be offered as an optional upgrade in the upcoming Tesla Model 3. A similar driving mode in the Tesla Model S P 90D allows the car to do 0 to 97kmph in just about 2.8 seconds as compared to 3.1 seconds taken by the standard version. The ‘Ludicrous’ drive mode in the Tesla Model X P 90D helps it do a 0 to 97kmph in just about 3.2 seconds as compared to 3.8 seconds taken by the standard version.

The new Tesla Model 3 will be offered in single-motor rear-wheel drive and dual-motor all-wheel drive configurations. The vehicle is capable of clocking a 0 to 97kmph in just under six seconds and can cover a distance of 346km on a full charge. Tesla will begin deliveries for the Model 3 from the West Coast first, thereon progressing to the East Coast followed by Europe and the Asia-Pacific. The vehicle deliveries will begin sometime late next year, while an India launch may happen in 2018.
