There is no doubt that electric vehicles are fast with 100% of torque available from go, but this drag race between a Tesla Model 3 Performance and Zero SR/F is all a bit ho-hummm.
Pointless drag race
Apart from the lack of earth-shattering noise usually associated with a drag race, it’s a pretty pointless exercise.
We’re note sure why InsideEVs Italia chose the Tesla Model 3 and Zero SR/F.
They’re not even the world’s fastest electric car and bike.
That honour goes to Tesla’s Roadster and the Lightning LS-218. That might have been a better match-uo for drag race.
Check out the tech specs comparison below for the Model 3 and SR/F.
Zero pulled out of Australia a couple of years ago, before the SR/F was released. So we have quoted prices of both in Europe.
If you really are enthused about straight-line drag speeds, you can see you get a lot more bang (or whirring whistle) for your buck from an electric motorcycle.
Mind you, the same goes for a traditional motorcycle over a conventional car!
