The Tesla Cybertruck is already proving itself to be a formidable drag racer. The electric pickup has already laid waste to the GMC Hummer EV and the Lamborghini Urus SUV in drag race videos. A new Carwow video shows the funky electric pickup putting another competitor, the Ford F-150 Raptor R, to shame.

The Tesla has more power in this fight, with a total output of 845 bhp and 685 pound-feet (930 Newton-metres) of torque. It's also heavier than the Raptor R, tipping the scales at 3,084 kilograms (6,799 pounds) and giving the Blue Oval’s off-road pickup truck the illusion of opportunity.

The F-150 Raptor R is no slouch, though, with the automaker’s supercharged 5.2-litre V8 engine under the bonnet producing 700 bhp and 640 lb-ft (868 Nm) of torque. It weighs 2,703 kg (5,959 lbs) but can’t overcome its performance deficit.

The Tesla handily crushes the Ford in all three drag races. The Cybertruck completes the quarter-mile battle in 11.2 seconds, while the Raptor R needs 12.4 seconds. The Tesla also won the rolling race and the brake test, but an unconventional 328-foot (100-metre) dash at the end did place the two on a more even playing field.

The short race saw the Cybertruck race on dirt while the Raptor competed on tarmac. The Cybertruck won the first race but lost the second. It won the third, completing the sprint in 5.1 seconds. It took the road-going Raptor 5.4 seconds. We’d like to see the race done again with the Raptor on dirt just for fun, even if we know which truck would win.
