Who doesn’t love a petrol vs electric drag race?!

We’ve got Mat in the Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 S and he’s lining up against a Tesla Model 3 Performance!

Now on the face of it, you might think it’ll be an easy walkover for the Tesla. But trust us, this is going to be much closer than you think. You see, the 2-litre turbocharged petrol engine in the CLA has had a Stage 1 tune, and as a result, it now puts down 490hp & 660Nm of torque!

As for the Tesla, it’s powered by two electric motors. Combined, they produce exactly the same output as the tuned CLA - 490hp & 660Nm!

So what do you think - does the Mercedes stand a chance against the instant power output from the Tesla? Well, there’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!

A long time ago Top Gear boys (old men more like it) used to race various high-performance cars across Europe, London to the South of France specifically. JC, always in the car, always won. Do it now! Do it with EVs. Any EV versus train or any other public transport. (In Al Pacino's voice) Brother, you are going down!

8:25 how is drag race winning it for Tesla if the difference was 0.1s? Why dont u put emphasis on the fact they were closer instead of "cla being such a loser for 0.1s against no gear car" lol

Probably just a different take. They make some mistakes, once they used a wrong badge on the model 3 performance race and irritated the Tesla community.

The distance should be extended. Mercedes would have won the drag race if the distance had been extended. Distance is short for proving the real value of the cars. Mercedes was massively catching up

That's a fast 45! Although to beat a Model 3 you need to be driving a tuned A45 at 120mph with the gearbox in manual at 5000 rpm in race mode all the time.... comfy.

I'm a Tesla fan boy and owner and I'd love to see this done again on a dry tarmac. I do think the Merc will perform a little better at the top end, but the Tesla still spews zero emissions while being extremely close in overall performance and being generally better where it counts: where most people drive, at the low end of the dial.

Electric motors develop instant torque. That’s why the EV will always win. The difference is, every time you use the Tesla’s performance you end up destroying the range.

There's something fishy about this video. At 4:01 you can clearly see that the Merc windshield is aligned with Tesla's rear door. If you don't believe me slow down the video to 25% and see it in slow motion. Merc's body and Tesla's body are overlapping, and Merc is still gaining. Tesla's nose is maybe 2m in front of Merc's nose. But then in the very next moment they show them passing through finish, and suddenly Tesla's nose is like 8m ahead of Merc's nose. That means they are showing us two different runs. Either the race was scripted, or they recorded several runs and then stitched them together in arbitrary order. Either way, we're not watching what really happened. That's very very fishy.

Is the answer to EVs flat acceleration at higher speeds a 2 speed gearbox like the Taycan and E Tron GT?
Delusion2

model s long range 10.9 @ 130mph 1/4, trap speed is good for the ET. ms plaid 9.3 @ 152mph, trap speed is amazing for the ET, it basically surpases 765LT slightly. rimac nevera 8.6 @ 167mph, again very high trap speed all these cars are single speed and have insane top end acceleration. it's all about tuning the motors at high rpm which the newer teslas and nevera seem to have optimized well.. so a 2 speed is probably not needed now. remember, the nevera can do 250+ mph with 1 speed, apparently.
