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

To put these numbers in perspective, here is a list of cars in which the Model X‘s 9.83 @ 146.68 is faster than: (via 0-60specs.com)

  • 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.
