Tesla Model X Sets 1/8-Mile World Record For Production SUV – Video
Of course it does…as no other production SUV is even close to as quick as the Tesla Model X.
Off the line, the Model X (like the Model S) blows away the competition with a 0 to 60 MPH time of just 3.2 seconds.
But what if we extend the race to an 1/8th-mile? Well, the Model X still wins…
We took our Tesla Model X to the local drag strip. It is a 1/8th mile track.
They snickered and questioned if I really wanted to race “that”.
By the end of the night, we had many converts and were drawing huge crowds around the car.
We raced anyone and everyone that would race us (some would not) and we were undefeated!!!
Yes, an SUV dominated over muscle cars, nitrous boosted cars and highly modified cars for racing. We owned the 1/8th mile.
For comparative purposes, the BMW X5 M is perhaps closest to the Model X in the high-performance SUV category. Though it can only manage an 8.2-second time in the 1/8th-mile race.
