Which Is Faster: Tesla Model Y, Model 3 Or Model X?

This is the first drag race between Tesla Performance Models

  • All three Tesla vehicles are Performance models.

  • The results come after some ¼ mile runs.


The paint on the Tesla Model Y is barely dry and some owners are already having fun with their new toys. The Model Y, Tesla’s compact SUV, is expected to become the brand’s most popular vehicle before long. Production began recently and some owners managed to take delivery before the coronavirus changed the planet’s plans. In this video, we see how the Performance versions of the Tesla Model Y, Model 3 and Model X measure up against each other.

Two buddies, Kyle from Out of Spec Motoring and Brian of i!Tesla, got together to shoot a drag race between these three high-performance electric vehicles from Tesla. Because the track where the race took place was not wide enough to accommodate a three-wide drag, the showdown started with the Model Y against the Model 3 followed by the Model X vs. the Model X.

The results are conclusive: They’re all insanely fast! The slowest of the three, the Model Y, covers the ¼ mile run in only 12.04 seconds! The Model X, the most powerful and expensive of the three takes home the honors.

There’s a good amount of data in the video and an interesting conclusion: The Model Y is only one update away from launching like the Model 3.
