Tesla Model S Plaid set a world record in a quarter mile race, covering the distance in just 9.2 seconds.
Tesla has officially announced that its Model S Plaid electric car can accelerate to a maximum of 320 kilometers per hour, and it takes only 1.99 seconds for the car to overcome the first mark of 100 kilometers per hour. This did not affect the range, since the electric car is able to cover up to 624 kilometers on a single battery charge.
Automotive columnist Jay Leno confirmed that the record of 9.2 seconds at a distance of a quarter mile is the official and confirmed representative of the accredited organization. In just 402 meters of track, the Model S Plaid managed to accelerate to 244.6 kilometers per hour. This allowed the Tesla Model S Plaid to take its place in history as the fastest production car ever.
Note that in 10 seconds on the specified segment, far from family sedans fit. So, the Bugatti Chiron Sport coped with this task in 9.4 seconds, the Porsche 918 Spyder – 9.7 seconds, the McLaren P1 – 9.8 seconds, and the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport and McLaren 720S barely met in 9.9 seconds.
