Tesla’s Model S P100D set a blistering 0-60 mph time of just 2.28 seconds earlier this year. While this seems scarcely believable, Engineering Explained is here to give you the run down on how Tesla managed this impressive feat. The critical piece of information is that the 0-60 time of 2.28 seconds excludes the time for 1 ft of rollout. In that first 0.26 seconds, the Tesla has already reached 5.9 mph before the clock has started ticking. This video explains rollout, and why it is used by all the major auto magazines.
