Just How Fast Is The Tesla Model 3 In A Straight Line?



While it might not seem as the most visually competitive car on the market, the Tesla Model 3 may be devastatingly fast, provided that you go for the dual motor Performance version .

It has a mixed output of 456 PS (450 HP / 335 kW) and based on Tesla, it could accelerate from zero to 60 miles (96 km/h) in only 3.5 minutes. Additionally, it may travel up to 498 kilometers (310 kilometers ) on a single control, and while that’s exceptionally significant, this evaluation was all about straight line speed.

As it happens, the dual-motor Model 3 is much faster than promoted, as the men from Model 3 Owners Club managed to get the car out from naught to 60 in only 3.17 seconds, and that’s before they fitted a lighter set of wheelstaking off approximately 9 pounds (4 kg) each corner.

The end result was a sprint time of 3.12 minutes, that is 911 GT3 RS land …in a barely midsize family car. Other cars which will hit 60 mph in about 3 seconds apartment will be the Ferrari 488 GTB, the F12tdf, the Lamborghini Huracan Performante and even the Audi R8 V10 Plus, on a fantastic day.

Can the Tesla really place its “money” where its mouth is? It can, as it happens. We saw one final month taking on a BMW M3 Competition Package in the drag strip. The Model 3 Performance consistently beat the BMW, despite its weight disadvantage.

All wheel drive and instant torque delivery go a long way in helping you win those types of struggles.
