Watch: Tesla Model X Plaid Goes 0-60 mph in 2.3 Seconds [VIDEO]
What impressed Vehicle Virgins the most was the acceleration and 0-60 mph times of the Model X Plaid with six seats.
Tesla’s website states the Model X Plaid can do 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds, but the channel was able to achieve a stunning time of 2.3 seconds, on terrain that looked like it was slightly uphill, on the side of a mountain road. The times were recorded with a Racelogic VBOX lap timer.
It appears Tesla has underpromised and over-delivered with its Model X Plaid.
Subsequent tests saw 0 to 60mph times of 2.5 seconds at about 60% state of charge for the battery. Vehicle Virgins believes it could possibly hit 2.2 seconds if it had a 100% battery.
