Tesla Model S : New Carbon-Ceramic Brakes Cost $25,400 in Canada

Tesla will offer performance oriented brakes, but they have a price

Tesla‘s success is due in part to the high level of driving pleasure of its four models. In fact, there are hundreds of acceleration videos on the web showing a Model S humiliating an exotic car. What’s more, since the arrival of the Model S Plaid variant, the sedan now has an even more mind-boggling powertrain for a comfortable zero-emission car.

The problem is that all this added performance has to be slowed down. And with the weight of the batteries and the three engines, the sedan’s original package is not cut out for more extreme use… like a track session for example!

The good news is that the manufacturer is aware of this problem. In fact, they’ve already promised that performance parts will eventually be offered to the car’s customers for a “track ready” package.

While the full package has yet to be revealed, here’s at least one detail that should make the car better able to withstand more demanding use. On the American company’s website, you’ll find a carbon-ceramic brake kit worth – brace yourself – $25,400 (or $20,000 in U.S. dollars), a very nice sum you’ll agree.

Note that the sedan must be equipped with 21-inch Arachnid wheels, an option that adds $5,900 to the price of the car and reduces the theoretical range to 560 km, instead of the 637 km promised with the 19-inch wheels.

The carbon-ceramic brake package includes four carbon-silicon rotors, six-piston calipers in front and four-piston calipers in back, two parking brakes integrated with the calipers, high-performance brake pads and a bottle of high-temperature brake fluid.

Tesla plans to offer this option starting in mid-2022. It’s a very expensive option, but it could allow owners of the world’s fastest new electric sedan to use their car in a closed course.
