Drag racing: electric Tesla Model Y vs. Ford Mustang

Drag racing: electric Tesla Model Y vs. Ford Mustang

November 9, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

As part of the race in a straight line, the all-electric Tesla Model Y crossover competed against the gasoline monsters Ford Mustang, Ford Taurus SHO, Subaru WRX and Chrysler 300C. The corresponding video appeared on the YouTube channel dedicated to drag racing.

The Tesla Model Y crossover is the slowest of the entire model line of the American electric vehicle manufacturer. However, this does not mean that it will not be as powerful as its “put together” and will have to lose to many cars that are equipped with conventional internal combustion engines. We’ve already seen the Tesla Model Y perform well in a straight line race with several tough contenders.

In fact, according to Tesla itself, the Long Range Model Y crossover can take you from zero to 100 km / h in 4.8 seconds.

Throw in the $ 2,000 new acceleration software enhancement, or RUB154,375, and this same crossover can hit 100 km / h in about 4.3 seconds. And if you order the Model Y in the high-performance “package” Performance, the acceleration time drops to 3.5 seconds, which is quite impressive for a small crossover.

The electric Model Y has no direct rivals yet, but time is ticking. The upcoming Ford Mustang Mach-E, also an electric crossover, comes to mind first, but there are a few more similar new products on the horizon.

In this video, an American electric car races in a straight line for a quarter of a mile (402 meters). Its competitors are the Ford Mustang, Ford Taurus SHO, Subaru WRX and Chrysler 300C.

The same YouTube channel has previously published several videos in which the Tesla Model Y covers the same distance in 12 seconds. This time, the electric car managed to break out of the 11-second mark. This is partly due to the lower temperatures during the ride and the lighter wheels.

Not so long ago, we wrote that this Land Rover Defender will receive an electric motor from Tesla. Experts from a foreign studio decided to install an all-electric Tesla motor under the hood of the British Land Rover Defender SUV.
