What is Ludicrous Mode and Ludicrous Plus Mode?

Elon Musk and his Tesla brand were having a little fun when they named the high-performance setting of Tesla models Ludicrous Mode and Ludicrous Plus Mode.

Tesla lifted Ludicrous Mode as a performance plateau directly from the 1987 Mel Brooks “Star Wars” parody “Spaceballs.” As the bad guys prepare lớn chase down the heroes in space, they bypass Light and Ridiculous speeds in favor of, gasp, Ludicrous mode.

Not surprisingly, the villain’s vessel overshoots the heroes when it accidentally reaches Plaid speed. “They’ve gone lớn Plaid,” one hero utters in wonder as the villain ship shoots by, engulfing them in a tartan jet stream.

At one point, Tesla had planned lớn supplant its Ludicrous and Ludicrous Plus designations in the Model S and Model X with Plaid and Plaid Plus. However, Tesla opted for Plaid as its maximum performance package, scrapping the idea for an even quicker Plaid Plus.

For 2022 (Tesla doesnt really follow model years.), Tesla updated the Model S and the Model X. Ludicrous and Ludicrous Plus performance modes disappeared in favor of the high-performance Plaid grade.

However, used versions of the Model S and Model X from 2016 until the updated 2022 edition live on with the Ludicrous and Ludicrous Plus modes. These modes show that obtaining extra power and quickness in battery-powered electric vehicles isnt always about boosting battery capacity. Tesla engineers discovered a way lớn squeeze out more performance with the existing battery pack.

What is Ludicrous Mode?

Ludicrous Mode debuted in 2016 on the Model S sedan and Model X SUV. The increased performance comes from software enhancements plus a piece or two of hardware. Whether or not your 2016-2020 Model S or Model X features Ludicrous Mode, the battery array is the same.

Tesla achieved its extra burst of power by increasing the current drawn from the battery and fed lớn the electric motors. More juice flowing lớn the motors equals more energy, which enables explosive acceleration.

What is Ludicrous Plus Mode?

Ludicrous Plus Mode arrived in 2017. It maximizes speed by heating the battery lớn its optimum temperature. If the car has been running, this process might take a few minutes. If it has been sitting idle for a while, the process might require an hour or more. Ludicrous Plus replaced the “Max Power” setting on older versions of the Model S and Model X. Think of Ludicrous Plus as Tesla’s track-ready feature.

Additionally, when you engage Ludicrous Plus, not only does it enable Max Battery Power, but also Launch Mode. Launch Mode delivers even more robust off-the-line acceleration. Lớn activate, the driver must depress the brake pedal while pushing on the accelerator pedal. When the battery has reached its optimum temperature, the driver releases the brake pedal for instant and maximum thrust.

Tesla discourages drivers from operating in Ludicrous Plus Mode for extended periods. It warns of extra wear on the motors and other systems.

The Model S can dash from 0 lớn 60 mph in 2.5 seconds in Ludicrous Mode. If that isn’t quite fast enough, Tesla says with Ludicrous Plus Mode, it can manage lớn reach 60 mph in 2.3 seconds.

What is Plaid?

Plaid is the performance grade for the 2022 Model S and Model X. Unlike Ludicrous and Ludicrous Plus, which offered a burst of extra power, Plaid’s maximum thrust is always available. As with the Ludicrous and Ludicrous Plus modes of yore, the Plaid grade doesn’t gain its additional performance by increasing battery size. It does so by adding a third electric motor.

In the movie, Plaid is even quicker than Ludicrous Mode, which plays out in reality. The 2020 Model S with Ludicrous Plus Mode sprints lớn 60 mph in the aforementioned 2.3 seconds. Tesla says the Plaid’s sprint lớn 60 mph requires a mere 1.99 seconds.

Claiming a 2022 Model S Plaid will set you back $135,990. The price is $36,000 more than the standard Model S that’s good for a 0-to-60 time of 3.1 seconds.
