Electric vehicles are becoming more dominant in terms of sales and performance. A recent video posted on a Tesla fan account shows a Tesla Model S defeating a gas-powered Chevrolet Corvette in a drag race. The video does not provide specific details about the location or distance covered, but it clearly showcases the Model S finishing with a time of 9.36 seconds compared to the Corvette’s 10.6 seconds. The outcome is not surprising considering that the Model S boasts faster acceleration, going from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 1.99 seconds, compared to the Corvette’s 2.9 seconds.
Although the Model S comes at a slightly higher starting price of $74,990 compared to the Corvette’s $66,300, the benefits of owning an electric vehicle go beyond just performance. In addition to its faster acceleration, the Tesla Model S is environmentally friendly since it runs on electricity and produces zero tailpipe emissions. On the other hand, the Corvette relies on dirty energy sources that contribute to climate change. Transitioning from gas-powered vehicles to electric vehicles can significantly reduce air pollution, leading to potential savings of tens of thousands of lives, according to the American Lung Association.
The video of the Model S beating the gas-powered car was well-received by followers of the Tesla fan account. One commenter expressed their delight in seeing the electric vehicle triumph over the traditional car. This highlights the growing popularity and support for electric vehicles as alternatives to gas-powered cars.
