UPDATE: Video previous embedded above removed from YouTube. - In the latest video, ICSI shows how quickly the Tesla Model S Plaid accelerates, in regular conditions somewhere on the road.
The times appear to be in line with previous reports that 0-60 mph (96.5 km/h) is possible in around 2.3 seconds (MotorTrend achieved 2.28 seconds). That's 0.2 second more than on the drag strip and 0.3 second more than on the drag strip with 1 foot rollout.
ICSI's results (road):
- 0-60 mph (96.5 km/h) in 2.3 seconds (2.1 seconds with 1ft rollout)
- 0-100 mph (160.9 km/h) in 4.7 seconds
Drag strip results:
- 0-60 mph (96.5 km/h) in 2.1 seconds (1.9 seconds with 1ft rollout)
- 0-100 mph (160.9 km/h) in 4.1 seconds
The 2.3 second 0-60 and 4.7 second 0-100 mph times are state-of-the-art results for a production car and we are extremely happy that it's an electric car.
