The Tesla Model S is now leaving its California factory at around 100 units per month as production ramps up. Tesla and its R&D into electrified drive trains is something the mainstream auto industry has yet to compete with. The model is is said to have a 300 mile range, something most people can live with but what is most amazing is the performance it unleashes. The BMW M5 is the pinnacle of super sedans, it will keep up with many smaller dedicated sports cars while pampering its occupants in luxury. The sound that the M5 emits is just raw petrol burning excitement, the Tesla we ‘re not so sure about.

M cars have never been known to be quick at the strip but rather be all around driver ‘s cars being exceptional in the twists- the Tesla Model S is still up for debate but makes an interesting contender moving forward. Video after the break.
