Tesla cars are fast! Unless you put them in Chill Mode, of course.

In fact, the fastest production car on the road right now is the Model S Plaid. Which was released in mid-2021.

The Model S Plaid has a 0-60 time of just under 2 seconds!

1.98 seconds to be exact. (although that is with specific conditions)

So, how fast is the acceleration of all the other Tesla models?

## Tesla Model 3 Acceleration

There are a few different variations in each model category, so I will list the acceleration for each separately.

Model | 0-60 mph Acceleration |

Tesla Model 3 Rear Wheel Drive | 5.8 seconds |

Tesla Model 3 Long Range | 4.2 seconds |

Tesla Model 3 Performance | 3.1 seconds |

## Tesla Model Y Acceleration

The Model Y is bound to be a little slower off the mark because it is heavier and less aerodynamic than the Model 3. Let’s take a look…

Model | 0-60 mph Acceleration |

Tesla Model Y Standard Range (No longer available) | 5.3 seconds |

Tesla Model Y Long Range | 4.8 seconds |

Tesla Model Y Performance | 3.5 seconds |

The 2021 Model S Plaid is now the fastest car available from Tesla, at least until the new Roadster becomes available.

The first table below is the latest Model S refresh, which was released in 2021 with the new Plaid variant.

Model | 0-60 mph Acceleration |

## Tesla Model X Acceleration

Now, the new Model X refresh, which started shipping in late 2021 is also insanely quick off the mark, Sure, it is a little slower than the Model S due to its weight and shape, but impressive nonetheless!

Model | 0-60 mph Acceleration |

Model X | 3.8 seconds |

Model X Plaid | 2.5 seconds |

## Tesla Roadster Acceleration

Model | 0-60 mph Acceleration |

Model Roadster | 3.7 or 3.9 seconds (varies by model) |
