A Tesla Model X Plaid is a large, heavy, family-hauling SUV, but it is also one of the fastest production cars on the road that can make most gas-powered supercars look slow.
In an unofficial quarter-mile test recently published by the Complete Street Performance Shorts YouTube channel, we get to see just how fast.
The video shows off the completely stock Model X on what seems to be a public road with the performance being monitored by a Dragy device.
Dragy uses high speed GPS satellites to accurately measure a vehicles performance within 1/100th of a second.
As per the results, the 2022 Model X Plaid SUV is insanely fast. It completed:
- 60 feet in 1.71 seconds
- 0-60 mph in 2.74 seconds
- 1/8 mile in 6.48 seconds @ 116.41
- 60-130 mph in 5.12 seconds
- 0-130 mph in 7.86 seconds
- 1000 feet in 8.29 seconds @134.31
- ¼ mile in 9.83 seconds @ 146.68
- 100-150 mph in 5.25 seconds
- Bugatti Veyron 16.4
- McLaren Senna
- Porsche 911
- Lamborghini Huracan
- Ferrari 488
It is also faster than the advertised 9.9 second time, and within a second of the Model S Plaid, which when slightly modified with a stripped interior can run the 1/4 mile in just under 9 seconds.
