Almost all models offer immediate, quick, smooth and silent acceleration in less than 8 seconds, most of them in under 7 seconds. The top models are good for 3.5 seconds or less.

On the top, besides several Tesla cars, now we see also a Porsche – the first other brand (not a Tesla) that managed to go under 3 seconds.
