Honda Accord Can Beat Tesla P100D On The Drag Strip!

By  | 

The Honda Accord is one of the most popular midsized sedans in automotive history and it will be only a matter of time before the full turbocharged offering on the current Accord evolves into hybrids and pure EVs.

When that happens, the Accord may have enough power to outdo the Tesla Model S P100D on the quarter-mile. This was hinted by an old Accord which has got its powertrain swapped for a full EV.

The car we are referring to is a 1981 Honda Accord that has been modded with a battery pack from Chevrolet Volt and electric motors that are sourced from the Tesla P85D. When added together with the old Accord’s lightweight setup, the vehicle can hit 60mph from stop in 2.48 seconds.

This is about the same time achieved by the Tesla Model S P100D and it basically highlights how a simple EV modification can do wonders for the Accord. If you still find this hard to believe, you can check out the video demonstration of the 1981 Accord EV below. It’s pure maddening.
