Here's a list of all current Tesla models and how their 0-60 times compare with gravity:

Model/ 0-60 Acceleration
Planet (Seconds)(G's)
-------------- -------- ------------
Moon 16.1 0.17
Mars 7.2 0.38
3 SR 5.6 0.49
Y LR 5.5 0.50
3 SR+ 5.3 0.52
3 LR 5.0 0.55
Y LR AWD 4.8 0.57
X LR 4.7 0.58
3 LR AWD 4.5 0.61
S LR 4.1 0.67
X Performance 3.5 0.78
Y Perf 3.5 0.78
3 Performance 3.2 0.85
Venus 3.0 0.91
S Performance 3.0 0.91
X Ludicrous 2.8 0.98
Earth 2.7 1.00
S Ludicrous 2.4 1.14
Roadster 1.9 1.44
Jupiter 1.1 2.53

LOL, you're really headed down the Tesla rabbit hole after your test drive, aren't you? Did you place your order?

No. Still waiting to hear back on my trade in. This rabbit hole is nothing new for me. I've been an electric car junkie since the first Leaf came out. Just been waiting for one I could afford that was worth having.

What's up with the formatting? I did the table in courier thinking it would preserve the spacing. Guess not?

Some forums offer a "code" mode, which is intended for displaying computer source code. Let's see if this forum supports it....

Code:
Model/         0-60     Acceleration
Planet         (Seconds)(G's)
-------------- -------- ------------
Moon           16.1     0.17
Mars            7.2     0.38
3 SR            5.6     0.49
Y LR            5.5     0.50
3 SR+           5.3     0.52
3 LR            5.0     0.55
Y LR AWD        4.8     0.57
X LR            4.7     0.58
3 LR AWD        4.5     0.61
S LR            4.1     0.67
X Performance   3.5     0.78
Y Perf          3.5     0.78
3 Performance   3.2     0.85
Venus           3.0     0.91
S Performance   3.0     0.91
X Ludicrous     2.8     0.98
Earth           2.7     1.00
S Ludicrous     2.4     1.14
Roadster        1.9     1.44
Jupiter         1.1     2.53

Yup. You can either click the "+" in the box next to the video link icon, or click the wrench to use the BB code editor and surround the text in a code tag.

My model 3 has a 75kWh battery and weights 2000 kg.

Theoretical limit:

If I did the math right, the car could potentially climb to 44,000 feet on a battery charge. (that's ignore traction and large heat losses).

Conversely, if you descended from 44,000 feet, you could fully re-generate a depleted battery.

These limits also suggests that a 2000 kg plane with a 75kWh battery is pushing the limits of physics to get get up to altitude.

I haven't played with equations like this for 40 years, so hopefully somebody can check and correct my calculations.
And it goes without saying that a theoretical limit is just that... a limit that we can't achieve, but we can strive towards.

Your model 3 has a 75kW battery? I thought it only had 65kW?

Please let us know how they measured the earth's 0 to 60 time.
That's easy. They dropped a Tesla from a tall crane and somebody on the ground used a radar gun and stopwatch. But that's really not the important question here. Who or what did the same thing on Venus, Mars and Jupiter? :)

P.S. Shouldn't your forum avatar be this one?

Had many of these flying around Mountain View, CA (Moffet Field NAS) when I was growing up.
