Tesla Model 3s Battle It Out On the Dyno

News : January 10, 2019

We got struck by some electric love today — Scott’s Red Multi-Coat 2018 Tesla Model 3 Long Range, and Hoang’s Deep Blue Metallic 2018 Tesla Model 3 Performance came in to twist the rollers! After performing some calibration on our DynoJet 424xLC2, we were able to report accurate torque readings for both vehicles, and the results were… well… impressive. Ridiculously impressive.

What you’re looking at in the dyno graph below is an overlay of the two vehicles in Performance Mode (Red and Blue Graphs), followed by the graphs of the two vehicles in “Chill” mode. It is amazing that two vehicles can go from such a wide variance in power to a nearly perfect overlay with the push of a button. 

Coming in at an absurd 463.71awhp & 496.28lbft, Hoang’s Model 3 in Performance Mode is definitely no slouch! Peak numbers aside, check out that torque curve… it’s nearly vertical at tip-in! 0 to 500lbft instantly. Insanely-cool.
