Electrical vehicles are identified for out-accelerating comparable gas-burning vehicles with ease, so in cases when the EV is extra highly effective than the ICE car, you’d anticipate a drag race to be a foregone conclusion, proper?

***UPDATE: It is come to our consideration that the Tesla on this race was solely charged to 30%. This might negatively influence its efficiency. Autotrader was known as out for this after which blurred the display on the Mannequin S in order that its state-of-charge could not be seen.


Nicely, as this straight line battle between a 640 horsepower Lamborghini Huracan Performante and a Tesla Model S P100D with 835 horsepower (twice the torque and the new Cheetah Stance), rather less energy goes a great distance, particularly if a car is lighter (and the Lambo is a whopping 700 kg / 1,540 kilos lighter).

Tesla quotes its prime quality Mannequin S as with the ability to dash to sixty in 2.4 seconds, two tenths faster than the Lambo. And you’ll see this fairly clearly on this drag race between the two, staged by AutoTrader.

The Tesla shoots off the road, reaching 60 mph faster than the Lamborghini, however then the latter comes flying previous; it’s clearly fairly a bit sooner, particularly nearer to its high finish than the Tesla, but it surely’s additionally effectively over double the worth of a Mannequin S. They’re clearly very completely different vehicles which can be geared toward very different types of individuals, however if you happen to test their spec sheets, it makes good sense to pull race them and see their actual life distinction in efficiency.
