Video: Tesla Model S Takes On Chevy Volt in 1/4-Mile Drag
In what’s dubbed as one of the quietest 1/4-mile drag races in history, the blazingly quick Tesla Model S is pitted against the pedestrian Chevy Volt.
The result? Well, let’s say it’s shocking that both vehicles exist, but only one is a quarter-mile monster.
This time, the Model S tripped the lights with a time of 12.562 seconds at a speed of 108.34 miles per hour. The Volt leisurely crossed the line at 17.201 second at a near-highway-legal speed of 80.36 mph.
We know that Tesla’s sedan is quick, both on paper and in the real world.
And just in case you were wondering, Motor Trend’s test of a Volt netted a quarter-mile time of 16.8 seconds at 81.5 mph, so the time set in this electrifying race at Palm Beach International Raceway isn’t too far off the mark.
Enjoy this electrifying video of the Model S versus the Chevy Volt.
