Tesla Model X beats Lamborghini

Tesla Model X beats Lamborghini

Two top-shelf Tesla cars both beat a Lamborghini Aventador, continuing to prove the technical advantages of high-end electric motors in acceleration.

The Model X set a record time for a sport utility vehicle. Instant torque allows electric vehicles to accelerate quickly out of the gate, but Tesla’s Ludicrous high-performance mode allows the vehicle to go from zero to 60 in under three seconds.

It isn’t the weight in play here, at 2.5 tonnes the Model X is not a light car whereas the Aventador is a good 500 kg lighter than it. However, the Ludicrous + enabled vehicle beat the Lambo clocking in at 11.418 seconds for a quarter-mile at nearly 189 kph. The Ludicrous enabled Model X sends 1253 Nm of torque and 588 horsepower to all four wheels as compared to the Aventador, that features a 750 horsepower V12 petrol engine driving all four wheels through a seven-speed transmission.

The Tesla Model X came in at a 11.418 second time on the quarter mile (approximately 400 m) drag race, setting the world record for the fastest ever time to be achieved by an SUV on that stretch.
