I keep reading and hearing about how a great benefit of an electric drivetrain is the instant torque that they offer. I have test driven the Roadster and been to the Model-S ride event and know firsthand of the great torque that a Tesla drivetrain offers. My question is this: Why is the torque and acceleration so bad on my 2010 Toyota Prius? I assume a lot of it has to do with the Prius trying to get you better gas mileage by restricting the acceleration speed. But when the EV mode selector is on you it takes a LONG time to make it up to 25 mph. Anyone have a good answer?
