Tesla Model S vs Boeing 737-800
A Tesla Model S P90D races against a Qantas Airlines Boeing 737-800 at Melbourne airport in Australia.
The Boeing 737-800 has a top (flying) speed of 850km/h and 50,000 pounds of thrust —
but the Tesla Model S P90D can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (100 km/h) in 3 seconds.
The Tesla and the Boeing raced the three-kilometre length of Melbourne’s Avalon airport.
The Model S had an advantage at the start thanks to its dual electric motors’ all-wheel drive.
Towards the end of the runway however, the 737 overtook the Model S and took off.
“The Tesla was hard to catch off the start. But the 737 narrowed the gap as it barrelled down the runway.
Both travelled neck and neck as the 737 reached its take-off speed of 160 mph (260 km/h)
and the Tesla reached its max at around 155 mph (250 km/h).”
On the ground, the Tesla was the clear winner.
It was overtaken when the Boeing 737 did what it was designed to do - fly.
