Tesla says the Model S Plaid is the quickest accelerating car in production today, and they claim the Model S Plaid+ has the quickest 0-60 mph and 1/4 mile acceleration of any production car ever. The Plaid has a 0-60 mph of 1.99 seconds, and the Plaid+ has a 0-60 of less than 1.99 seconds, if you believe the order page. Unfortunately, these numbers are deceiving, and the real zero to sixty is likely above two seconds. No, Tesla's Model S Plaid won't hit 60 mph in under 2 seconds. In this video we'll discuss rollout, Tesla's actual 0-60 time, 0-60 theory, and what today's theoretical limit on 0-60 mph is. Watch to learn more!

    Thanks for keeping them honest. What absolutely ridiculous deceptive advertising, and for no reason. Elon needs to be held accountable.

    So now that the S Plaid is out, and hit 1.98s in the Motor trend real-world testing, will you do an apology video? Also looks like you better don't apply for a job at Tesla as your physics/engineering skills are mediocre at best. ;)

    Musk said Wednesday that Tesla had halted purchases of its vehicles with bitcoin due to concerns over the "rapidly increasing use of fossil fuels for bitcoin mining." Is this imbecile even real?

    Where do you draw the line at the asterisk? You do realize they do it at a drag strip where it is prepped? So you won't get the 0-60 on unprepped regular streets. Then there is the issue with sea level for ICE cars. If you bring the car up to Denver and wonder why you can't hit the 0-60 times? Should they put an asterisk? Tesla is just following how the times are reported by all supercars. Please call them all out and not just Tesla. Or else, you just look like you are hating.

    What I don't understand is this, why get caught up so much about the standard, when 0 - 60 itself is only an American thing? The rest of the world uses 0 - 100 km/h. So you are okay with 1 American only standard, yet not okay with another American only standard?

      @Lionel Messi Too complicated for most. And I'm surprised the media hasn't attacked Tesla for this technicality either. Anyway, 0-60 mph and 1.98 seconds it is! 🤣🤣🤣

    • Lionel Messi
      Lionel Messi

      @Kunal Patel Yes, you read it wrong. Read the entire article. The 1.98 is with the one foot leap. From an actual standstill (0 MPH), it takes over 2 seconds.

    • Kunal Patel
      Kunal Patel

      @Lionel Messi "The Model S Plaid zips down the quarter mile in a staggeringly quick 9.25 seconds at 152.6 mph. The run from 0 to 60 mph happens just 1.98 seconds after the brutally hard launch. The Plaid covers distance so quickly, it's difficult to even register what's happening." - Posted on Motor Trend. I guess I'm reading wrong?

    • Lionel Messi
      Lionel Messi

      @Kunal Patel Nope, the 1.98 seconds is technically 6-60 MPH. So no, it did not get 1.98 seconds from 0.

    • Kunal Patel
      Kunal Patel

      @David G Hey I'm just looking at what Motor Trend was able to do, 0-60 mph in 1.98 seconds. Yes, there were specific conditions, but they made it happen.

    I hear all *race* cars are measured with roll out. This is a *production* race car that beats all other production cars. If not, I want drag strip proof. I hear it even beats a million dollars plus McLaren...

  • srinitaaigaura
    srinitaaigaura

    There's another problem. Rollout correction of 0.3s is usually used for RWD cars like the LaFerrari, which at Fiorano did 2.7 0-60s corrected to 2.4s. But For AWD, this correction comes out at only 0.2s usually. So that 2.28 sec will come to around 2.08s corrected. The Nevera did a 2.08 s 0-60 with carwow's Matt Watson for the 8.62s quarter mile record, so 2.28s uncorrected. Yup, limit of grip confirmed.

  • srinitaaigaura
    srinitaaigaura

    The Nevera on the 8.62s record quarter mile run shows a screenshot showing 0-60 in 2.08 s and 111 ft. However using the distance as a measure of acceleration, assuming a constant acceleration (ok in grip limited cases), I get an uncorrected time of 2.51 sec. How does it differ that much? I donno, rollout alone can't explain. That run clearly blasted the SF90 off the start, it was the best launch of the runs. So ditch that. Instead, comparing it to the Koenigsegg Regera, that did a 169 mph quarter mile in 9.5 something and has an uncorrected 0-60 of 2.95 sec on that particular 0-300-0 run (based on distance covered), I'd say around 2.25 sec uncorrected 0-60 would be the best you could get out of the Nevera. Rollout for AWD cars is around 0.2 sec. So a corrected theoretical best time would be somewhere between 1.95 to 2.05 sec depending on how that 1 foot rollout is calculated. So This time 2.28s for the Nevera I worked out is actually identical to the best time of 2.28 sec for the model S Plaid. So yes, this is the limit of tire grip. The Nevera might do 1.85 maybe only with super glue and rollout correction. Might.

      @Optimus Fine well i kind of agree. On normal raod with normal non track tires you wont se su 2s speed on any car reliant on friction due to physics... and to be honest i think this kind of accelerations are kind of dangerous in general allthough they are fun.

      @Daniel Monge so if you understand rollout what about this video didn’t age well? The entire point of this video was pointing out that the sub 2.0 time couldn’t happen without rollout, and that’s exactly the same thing motor trend said.

    • Daniel Monge
      Daniel Monge

      @Jonathan VORMANN Tesla promisse, on their website: "0-60 with rollout subtracted time: less than 2 seconds". What Tesla DIDN'T promissed: 0-60 times WITH rollout accounted AND in a normal road. Those are YOUR assumptions.

    • Jonathan VORMANN
      Jonathan VORMANN

      Came here just to say to you : Well, your comment didn't age well. Motortrend said Model S Plaid didn't beat 0-60 under 2 Seconds. Go read by yourself Tesla fanboy. I quote from Motortrend: "Eliminate the customary one-foot of rollout and the Plaid accelerates from 0-60 mph in 2.28 seconds".

  • PepperMint Ice

    Hey everyone, check out Motor Trends review. It’s better explained, better written, and even off the drag strip, the Model S Plaid got to 60mph in 2.07 seconds; still their fastest production car ever tested! “Once ready and in its cheetah stance, the Model S Plaid's launch is drama-free, even without the added advantage of VHT. The electric car accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.07 seconds, more than 0.2 second quicker than our previous record holder.”

    I find it strange that you say "why should people know about what roll out is" and yet you demand that Tesla shows detailed information about the 0-60 times on the main page... Why? As you can probably deduce yourself, most people don't care what roll out is, but neither do they care if the actual real-life acceleration is 2s or 3s... for the average consumer none of this makes any difference... for the connoisseurs - well, these are the people who will go and read the fine print anyway...

    At the end of the day you were right. You just can't beat math and physic. Without prep and rollout , tesla plaid can't do under 2 seconds. Rimac Nevera do 0-60mph in 2.08 seconds 'unofficial' on asphalt. With better adjustment, it has better chance doing under 2 seconds.

      The main thing people do in a drag race is to prep the surface. This and rollout are industry standard lol🤦‍♂️. The 'true' 0-60 is still 2.28 Seconds, on an unprepared surface. If you can't give them credit for that, idk what to tell ya.

      Read the article. Only on a prepped drag surface. No manufacturer or car magazine advertises 0-60 like this. It's impossible to do it on a street. Motortrend makes it clear that 2.0 second barrier is officially still unbroken per their own metrics.

      Motor Trend got a 1.69 60 ft time on that run with the Plaid. The P100D pulls a better 60 ft time. Jay Leno, on his record setting run with the Plaid got a 60 ft time of 1.469. Did MT sandbag their numbers a little bit? Obviously the Plaid is capable of better times than what MT got.

      Dude other manufacturers understate their car acceleration figures. A Porsche 911 GT3 is advertised by the company to do 0-60mph in 3.4 seconds, and guess what... it does it in 2.8 seconds ON NORMAL ASPHALT AND WITHOUT ROLLOUT SUBTRACTED. Almost no manufacturer mentions their acceleration time calculated on a drag strip with rollout subtracted.

  • Ayo Gesinde
    Ayo Gesinde

    To all the folks claiming the Plaid just took a dump on this theory...it hasn't (1) the g forces from braking on a prepped drag surface would still be higher than accelerating on the same prepped drag surface (2) the only independent test done so far on the Plaid Model S as of 06/17 in the year of our lord 2021 is Motortrend's, and they achieved 1.98 on a prepped drag surface. On a normal surface WITHOUT ROLLOUT, i repeat, WITHOUT ROLLOUT, which this video is all about, the 0-60 of the Plaid model S was 2.28 seconds. So there you go, the * (asterisk) remains on Tesla's claim. My money is on Rimac to break the 2 second barrier on a normal surface without roll-out.

      @yujirorasy rush Consistency matters bro ... But anyway I understood your point... My point was that if Rimac can get 0-60 in 2.08 seconds and quarter mile in 8.62 seconds , in a shape of hypercar and at a price of 2 million euros then many people will not be able to afford it... But if roadster comes at much lesser price with better real world numbers then I think it is easy to catch navera.... Anyway, Elon has done a fantastic job by giving real world numbers (without help) of 0-60 in 2.28 seconds and quarter mile in 9.32 seconds in a four door sedan at a price of less than 150000 dollars than it is Impressive.....

    From Motortrend: "Eliminate the customary one-foot of rollout and the Plaid accelerates from 0-60 mph in 2.28 seconds". EE was on point... for now.

    • Thales Silva
      Thales Silva

      @Jane Goodall EE was clear about the rollout allowance. In North-American drag racing substracting the time taken for the first 1 foot of vehicle movement, with only the derived timing being published, is the standard. Therefore, 2.28 is the corrected (no prep) acceleration time and EE is, in fact, on point.

    • Jane Goodall
      Jane Goodall

      From Motortrend" The Model S Plaid zips down the quarter mile in a staggeringly quick 9.25 seconds at 152.6 mph. The run from 0 to 60 mph happens just 1.98 seconds after the brutally hard launch." E was wrong... for now.

      I don't understand this flood of comments, or even the need for a follow-up video, did you guys not understand THIS video? THIS video was all about how Tesla's claimed sub-2.0 included rollout, then motor trend does a test WITH rollout and everyone is quoting it like it contradicts this video? No one was saying Tesla wouldn't hit the sub 2.0 time WITH rollout, Tesla wouldn't be claiming that number if they couldn't do it. The point was withOUT rollout it wouldn't get there, and guess what, even in Motortrends test on a prepped surface, 0-60 withOUT rollout was 2.28. A stunning number, but also exactly the point of this video.

      @MadMarshmallow IMHO, an honest person would have stated that the Plaid set a time under 2 seconds on a typical drag race 'sticky' surface. But owners can't expect to get speeds quite as fast on ordinary asphalt. But if one reported honestly and objectively they wouldn't have received as many clicks and made as much money, don't cha think?

      bloop

      @UltraStoat lol only these North Americans be using that rollout technology. North American manufacturer used to subtract rollout to measure their acceleration times, and it was not that huge a problem... but when a manufacturer comes and subtracts rollout to measure it's acceleration time and says that they made the first production car to make a car go from 0-60 under 2 seconds, then it is a huge problem. Jason would have made a video even if some other manufacturer would have done such a thing. He did not make this video to gate on Tesla (lol he literally owns a Model 3. If he hated them so much why would he have bought one) Literally Tesla seem to be the only manufactures to be subtracting one foot rollout from their acceleration figures. Literally every other manufacturer Porsche, BMW, Merc, Audi, Ferrari everyone's car is able to meet the acceleration figures advertised by their manufacturer ON ASPHALT ROADS WITHOUT REMOVING ROLLOUT, and sometimes even exceed their numbers. Often manufacturers understate their figures bcz they don't want to be in the acceleration war. This acceleration war had happened before and it was so serious that manufactuers just wanted to make quick cars and not make better, more fun cars.

    • UltraStoat

      @bloop live by click bait headlines, die by click bait headlines am I right. He kind of made this about Tesla when it’s not about Tesla. I’ve been watching drag racing and people measure there 0 to 60 times for a while now. Pretty much all the drag strip times had a rollout advantage because that’s what the measurement hardware at the track is. And it was never a big deal because it was consistent. Nobody has ever made such a big deal about it until Tesla is involved and takes the crown. All of a sudden, it really really REALLY matters lol. Whatever. Jason caused all the commotion himself through trolly headline. In the end it gets more views for him so in that respect it’s a genius move. But after it’s all said and done, the model S has cracked the 0-60 2 second barrier, and it did it by the same measuring stick that all its predecessors have used, haha even though people tried to pathetically move the goal post as soon as Tesla does it.

    • bloop

      Aaargh many people seemed to not understand the whole point of this video. The 1.98 second 0-60mph that motortrend tested was on a prepped drag strip with rollout subtracted. Motortrend say that thee sub 2 second 0-60mph barrier is still unbroken.

    Tesla wants $50,000 more for the Plaid model then the standard 2022 Model S. They have to make people feel like they're getting their money's worth so they exaggerate their claims of the car's acceleration differential between the two models. The Plaid model does not go 0 to 60 in under 2 seconds on regular pavement I promise you. Like Jason says it's just not possible.
