The guys over at Motor Trend recently got a hold of the new Tesla Model S and reported some very impressive figures:
- 0-60 mph: 3.9 seconds.
- 1/4 mile: 12.5 seconds at 110.9 mph.
- Fuel-economy: 100.7 MPGe during a 200+ mile drive (EPA rates it at 89 MPGe).
When compared to its high-performance gas-burning German rivals, Motor Trend points out that the Tesla Model S stacks up pretty well.
