Drag Times have tested a refreshed Tesla Model S P90D Ludicrous where the 5 door sedan ran 0-60 MPH just 2.6 second. Sure, 60 miles per hour is only 96 kilometers per hour but it's close enough to make no difference. A leading theory is that those vehicles already feature software-limited 100 kWh battery packs capable of higher power outputs.

Chevrolet Bolt EV Ride Along [VIDEO]

Chevy hopes to achieve huge success with the Bolt. The EV has a $30,000 starting price after the $7,500 federal tax credit and 320 km (200-mile) range from a 60 kWh battery pack. Those numbers put the Bolt squarely in the sights of people looking for a moderately priced electric car with a reasonable driving range. Much of the Tesla Model 3’s pre-order success has been attributed to those same factors. The list of Bolt components supplied by LG defines the car’s performance and most of its user experience.
