At altitude, gas vehicles suffer.  Electrics do not.

To test this well-known fact, The Fast Lane Car pitted two competitive vehicles against each other to see which one would take the crown at a mile above sea level.

The race is a 0 to 60 mph dash.

The vehicles are the 2013 Tesla Model S Performance and the 2013 Audi S8.

Here are a few additional details provided by The Fast Lane Car:

"The 2013 Tesla Model S is a game changer in the world of cars. Not only is it completely electric but it can go up to 300 Miles on a complete charge. The 2013 Tesla Model is also luxurious, elegant, stylish and expensive. The 2013 Audi S8 is all of those things and more. It is more luxurious, more powerful and perhaps even faster. We decided to find out in another fun and informative mile high 0-60 MPH Mashup review. The Audi has more HP and torque but at a mile above sea level the equation tends to level out as the Tesla Model S is not effected by the lower air density. So which one is faster to 60 MPH. Watch the video and find out."
