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!

    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 2.01 s 0-60 with carwow's Matt Watson for the 8.62s quarter mile record, so 2.21s uncorrected. Yup, limit of grip confirmed.

    The Nevera on the 8.62s record quarter mile run shows a screenshot showing 0-60 in 2.01 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. So a corrected time would be somewhere between 1.95 to 2.05 sec depending on how that 1 foot rollout is calculated. This time of 2.25 s I worked out is actually near 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.

    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...

      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.

      @Nirbhaya Tiwari to most consumers 2.28 is the real 0-60 (no rollout, no drag track prep) and maybe im alone but i think I will be able to blow off all the civics around here toget in to the left lane just fine

      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.

    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.....

      @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.

      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?

      @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.

      @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.

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.

You don't need an asterisk when you are quoting times measured according to industry standards. This is the kind of shade that TSLAQ types like to throw on Tesla. Only worse because it's done in that whiney little voice of yours. There are much better channels out there for learning relevant info about Tesla. If you just want to hear a dweeb complain about the best cars made in America, this is your "go to" channel! No one likes complainers (beyond the cult of TSLAQ).

      @Sayeed Al Sifat So cry me a river! It would be like complaining that your expensive 65" TV is only 55" wide. The industry standard is to measure on a diagonal. Nobody cares if there is an asterisk there when they advertise it as a 65" TV.

      @M Mullen still not 0-60, even if your non scientific measurement says it is

      @Sayeed Al Sifat Well, complain all you want but that's how 0-60 mph has been measured since before an EV took the top spot. And it's still how 0-60 mph is measured. So cry me a river.

      Even if it's a industry standard, math IS the standard. And according to math, 6=/=0

    Coverage on a subject that actually not going to be extinct in 10 years. While I do see your point I feel it quite politically motivated that Tesla should be required to adhere to a higher measurement standard than the rest of the auto industry. The standard is the standard either way and has been so for the better part of 100 years. If you ever accomplish a truly great feat in your life I certainly hope that Elon and/or Tesla engineers get to pick it apart. however, as a youtube "teacher" I highly doubt that day will come.

      @Thales Silva From Motortend: "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."

      From Motortrend: "Eliminate the customary one-foot of rollout and the Plaid accelerates from 0-60 mph in 2.28 seconds".

    The fact that it is on their website with an asterisk is enough. If people are willing to pay this type of money WITHOUT understanding what is meant by the industry when they say "0-60", that is on them. And no one is going to truly care about the difference, since it is all keyboard/cars and coffee bragging anyway. What really matters is relative speed..."will this car kick another car's ass in a light to light race?"

    If you check the model S plaid test from motortrend they actually found "Amusingly, the Plaid launches so ferociously hard, it generates more than 1.00 g from 0.2 second to 2.6 seconds after launch, peaking at 1.227 g at 32 mph. That's more g than the car generated in its best 60-0-mph stop, which required 104 feet and peaked at 1.221 g." So the assumption that it can brake harder than it can accelerate is (ever so slightly) not true. Love the videos! Have a great one!

      but it technically is better if your cars brake quicker than it accelerates
