Oh my Teddy good post. Fully charged those electrics are extreamy fast. I rode in one once that was a passenger car.
She gunned it and it threw me back into my seat. Like it was a Yanko Camero SS.

"You are quite mistaken my friend. The lowly Nissan Leaf has blown away Corvettes, Mustangs, and Cameros in drag races."








Must have been some pretty beat up Corvettes, Mustangs and Camaros. Best Nissan Leaf time I could find was 0 to 60 in 7.4 seconds (my old BMW could beat that) and quarter mile in 15.8 seconds at 88 mph. Unless, this was one of those 100 foot drag races.

Aim small, miss small!!!

Trains and Submarines use on board (diesel) generators to produce electricity then electric motors to do the final driving. The same with the huge oar haulers they use in open pit mines. The oar haulers have a motor at each wheel so thy can control the traction/speed at each wheel individually. As Manny said the electric motors produce MAXIMUM torque at "0" RPM so they are great for tremendous power at low speed.

You are absolutely correct. But the subs are nuclear now. Unbeveable what a main drive electric motor is capable of.
With no RPM restrictions. No transmissions.

Hydrogen cell would do it, but some idiot would screw it up. Lace it with argon, it would then only work in the cell.

Yeah, my former SIL had a leaf and it was no race car. It could never beat the above three cars.

You are correct, I am talking about the shorter distance drag races of 1/8th of a mile and less.

But, when someone says that an electric car can "barely get away from a stop light," that is patently false.

By the way, the Tesla Model X P90D does zero to 60 in 3.2 seconds. And that's the 2015 model. Go on line and watch the stock Tesla Model X crush a classic Ferrari F430 Spider in a full length drag race. It is not even close. You can watch it on Autoevolution.com.

Then you can go on line and watch a Tesla Model S P100D blow away several Turbo Charged V8 Muscles cars, fitted with nitrous-oxide tanks, in full length drag races, including two Mustangs, a Camero, a Chevy Monte Carlo and a Chevy S-10. You can view the races on CleanTechnica.com
