Tesla’s 5,400-Pound Model X SUV

What? Most minivans, SUVs, and crossovers you know of don’t pin you to the seat back along with the smartphone you dropped in your g-force-induced astonishment? And, you say, all the five to seven-passenger utilitarian-oriented vehicles you’re familiar with are not battery electric? OK. Point taken.

The Model X gets a better start off the line, and ends up finishing just 0.05 seconds ahead of the Lamborghini (which was quickly catching up at the end). While the Lamborghini was technically faster (with an elapsed time of 11.281 seconds and a speed of 129.38 miles per hour), the Model X finished the quarter mile in 11.418 seconds at 117.95 miles per hour, which DragTimes notes is a world record for an SUV.

The feat is impressive since the $165,000 Model X, essentially a luxury family car, beat a hand-built $530,000 sports car from one of racing’s most venerable brands.
