Watch: Tesla Model X Vs Model S Vs Model 3 Vs Model 3 Performance Drag Race


You need to stop everything you’re doing and watch the drag race between a Tesla Model X Vs Model S Vs Model S Vs Model 3 Vs Model 3 Performance. I know it’s quite a mouthful, so let’s just call it the ultimate Tesla showdown.

The Tesla drag race was conducted by AutoTrader UK and is loads of fun.

I am going to stop talking now so you can watch the race for yourself.

Tesla Model X Vs Model S Vs Model 3 Vs Model 3 Performance

The ultimate Tesla showdown was conducted in two rounds. During the first race, the competition was between Model X Vs Model S Vs Model 3. The outcome of this race was quite easy to predict, as the Model S P100D has the most horsepower and can easily smoke all its cousins.

In the first race, Tesla Model S came first, behind it was the Model X and Model 3 came in last. There are no surprises here as the Model S P100D is the most powerful. It makes 783 HP and 660 nm or 487 ft-lb of torque.

During the second race, the presenters decided to spice things up a little bit. That’s why they added the latest Tesla Model 3 Performance to the mix and raced one more time.

The Tesla Model 3 Performance is the top-spec mid-range electric car that makes 475 HP, after the latest 5% performance software update. It also makes 639 Nm of torque.

The Model X is no slouch either, making 777 HP and 840ft-lb torque, one of the fastest Teslas out there. The only thing holding it down is its 5,500 pounds of weight.

So in the second round, the Tesla Model 3 Performance went against the rest of the Tesla EVs and came second.

The Model S P100D, as expected, came out on top. While the Model X came got beaten by the Model 3 Performance. The standard Model 3 came in last.

Which Tesla Should You Buy?

The ultimate Tesla drag race proves the innate quality of each Tesla electric car distinctively. The Model SP100D is for performance enthusiasts, while the Model 3 Performance is for someone looking for a powerful yet affordable EV.

The Model X is a spacious people mover with a lot of torque on hand, while the standard Model 3 is your fun-to-drive everyday electric car.

Make no mistake because even the base Model 3 Standard Range Plus is quick enough than 90% of cars in its segment, but compared to the rest of the Tesla EVs, it is still the little brother.
