Video: Supra vs. all-electric army
CarWow has recently posted another YouTube video we feel obliged to share with you. The newest Toyota Supra went up against a Jaguar I-Pace, an Audi e-tron and a Tesla Model 3 Performance in a quarter-mile standing race, a rolling race from 80 km/h or 50 mph, and a brake test.
The Tesla Model 3 Performance comes powered by two electric motors giving it 480 hp (358 kW). The manufacturer claims it sprints 0-97 km/h (0-60 mph) in 3.4 seconds and tops out at 261 km/h (162.2 mph).
The Jaguar I-Pace also packs two electric motors, but their cumulative power is noticeably lower at 400 hp (298 kW). It runs the standard sprint in 4.8 seconds and hits its limit at 250 km/h (155 mph). Being an SUV, it also weighs in three hundred kilos (660 lbs) more than the Tesla.
The Audi e-tron packs 408 hp (304 kW), but weighs another 300 kg more than the Jaguar (600 kg / 1,322 lbs above the Tesla).
As for the Toyota Supra, the sports car comes rear-axle driven by a 3.0-liter turbo-six gasoline mill churning out 340 hp (254 kW). The lack of power is somewhat offset by its low curb weight of 1,500 kg (3,307 lbs), which is 300 kg below the weight of the Tesla.
Watch the video to see how things played out.
