The P85D is scheduled to start delivery this month.
Teslamotorsclub has a spreadsheet that is logging scheduled deliveries. So far, it looks like there's a slight delay in initial deliveries. In one post, a user remarks that he "just spoke to his Delivery Specialist who has always been pretty straightforward. His story is that my car and others are done and 'in a lot at Tesla' waiting for the Federal Government to approve the windows sticker for the P85D."
In another thread someone posted the P85D window sticker showing a EPA range of 242 miles to which Jerome Guillen (VP Sales/Service) replied to an email by saying, "The P85D and the S85 have about the same range at constant speed on the highway. However, in EPA range testing (combination of cycles), the P85D is expected to have a lower rated range than the S85. If you want to maximize range, I would recommend the 85D, whose deliveries will start in February 2015."
