Turns out that the world's quickest car is electric:
"First world record for TC-X by True Cousins with a time of 5.74 sec on the 1/8-mile (201 meters) making it the quickest accelerating car in the world, by car means "door-slammer", full body with doors that can open (in oppose to rails dragsters or Funny cars)."
"This time corresponds to a 0-100 km/h time of 1.5 sec. also beating The Green Teams so-called record of 1.77 sec."
So, 0 to 62 mph in 1.5 seconds, or approximately half the time it take the Tesla Model S to accelerate to that speed. Quick? You bet!
And the record is official:
"The record is set within NEDRA, The National Electric Drag Racing Association which holds all electric drag racing records of the world."
