A new study conducted by Cararac.com reveals that Tesla increased the engine power of its vehicles by 23.4% on average from approximately 13 years ago.
“We looked at all Tesla cars’ technical specs and compared them with other EVs and ICE vehicles on the market,” said Cararac.com in a news release. “We also compared different Tesla vehicles and looked at how they have changed over the last 13 years.”
The company’s research found that over a period of 13 years Tesla managed to not only achieve more power, but also 21.2% higher torque and a 7% higher top speed. However, vehicle dynamics declined by 3.3% and energy consumption increased.
Data from the study also reveals Tesla’s vehicles are 156.8% more powerful than the average vehicle equipped with an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE). On average, Tesla vehicles offer 446 horsepower compared to the average power of an ICE vehicle, which is 173 hp.
The automaker’s electric vehicles also accelerate on average 118.9% faster than ICE cars, and have an average driving range of 293 miles or 471.1 km, the study found.
“Tesla’s fastest car accelerates to 60 miles per hour in 1.9 seconds,” said Cararac.com. “The average figure is 4.35 s to 60 mph. That’s 118.9% faster than the market average (for ICE cars), which is 9.52 s to 60 mph, according to our calculations.
