Rimac Nevera and Tesla Model S Plaid they are two of the fastest electric bikes currently offered on the market. The Croatian brand’s battery-powered supercar has been voted the world’s fastest production car, but the Palo Alto-based automaker’s electric rival has never digested this verdict, reiterating the blistering performance of its super-powerful sedan. To remove any doubts, the Youtube channel DragTimes has decided to pit the two cars against each other, in an endurance race on the quarter of a mile held in three tests.
The first challenge enshrined a pretty clear verdict: the shot of the Tesla Model S Plaid at the start was far better, but Rimac Nevera managed to hang it up in a few meters and pass it without too many problems before the finish line. A prelude to what would happen in the next two challenges: the second duel saw an almost identical start shot of the two electric ones, with the Croatian brand’s hypercar having no problem in going on the run and triumphing; same outcome for the third and final duel, with Tesla doing everything to keep up with his rival signed by Rimac, but without succeeding. Eventually, the Nevera managed to finish the quarter mile with about 8 tenths of advantage on the Model S Plaid.
An outcome that is as clear as it is predictable: in fact, we remind you that the four electric motors installed on the Croatian hypercar emit a total of almost 2,000 hp, while the two engines that power the high-performance sedan of the Palo Alto brand stop at 1,020 hp. We are therefore talking about a discrepancy of almost 1,000 HP, expecting a victory of the Model S Plaid would therefore have been somewhat utopian. What is certain is that in both cases we are faced with a shot from 0 to 100 km / h achievable in less than 2 seconds, not really a paltry amount.
