Good explanation for people to understand how electric performance feels so different and is "around town" faster. However if I hop in my most fuel inefficient car and drive to Chicago from Austin, I'll beat the Tesla by 6+ hours. Still not ready to drop my gas cars for electric. Batteries are the problem for me.
My 1992 Honda Civic VX w/ 250k miles on the original engine can beat any EV from my home in Reno to Las Vegas, handily, even if the EV driver speeds as fast as he dares, and I adhere to all speed limits. If we both "top off" in Las Vegas and count the time required (the fair comparison), my time saved is even greater, on the order of 45 minutes.
