It seems Tesla has again underrated the performance potential of one of its cars.
No, we’re not discussing range here. Rather, the focus is on 0 to 60 MPH acceleration times.
According to Tesla, the Model 3 Mid Range is officially listed as capable of sprinting from 0 to 60 MPH in 5.6 seconds, but as it turns out, this Tesla Model 3 is far quicker than that.
