Electric Car Drag Racing, Tesla vs Tango

December 4th, 2008

On Nov 30th, the fastest production electric vehicles in the U.S. went drag racing at Infineon Raceway. While their first meeting had a number of issues, most notably the underfilled Tango battery pack, and the Tesla’s non-upgraded drivetrain, the 1/4 mile time is quite close and indicative of races to come.

The Tango ran a 14.480 @92.15 MPH against the Tesla which ran 14.666 @ 101.23 MPH. For more information on electric drag racing, check out our friends over at NEDRA, the National Electric Drag Racing Association.
