With all of the attention that is now being given to finding a zero emissions solution to the high carbon output that is produced from internal combustion engines that currently dominate both industries, it only makes sense that companies such as Tesla and Qantas would team up to help create a solution. Tesla continues to make news with the recent announcement of a more cost effective production vehicle that should be available to the public by 2017. The Model S P90D that is featured in this video is powered by a all-electric motor connected to the front axle that is capable of producing 259 hp that is matched to an all-electric motored at the rear axle that delivers a peak power output of 503 hp. The combined power output between the two electric motors equals an attention getting 762 hp that allows the Model S P90D to achieve 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds!
On the ground, both vehicles have a similar top speed with the Boeing 737 achieving a take-off speed of 160 mph while the Tesla Model S P90D has a max speed of 155 mph. Being much lighter than the Boeing 737, the Tesla Model S is able to enjoy a much faster launch off of the starting line and is only met by the Boeing 737 just before takeoff.
