Over the 13 years of its history, Tesla has managed to achieve 23.4% more power, 21.2% higher torque and a 7% higher top speed, but the vehicles’ dynamics dropped by 3.3% and energy consumption increased, the study found. In addition, the average power of Tesla cars is 446 HP, and for ICE vehicles it’s 173 HP. Tesla vehicles are also, on average, 62.8% more powerful than other EVs, the study found.

The study found that the average driving range of Tesla vehicles is 293 miles. The study also compared low-range cars with long-range ones, and the company saw a sharp increase in battery size for the cars with a longer range.

Tesla’s fastest car accelerates to 60 mph in 1.9 seconds. The average figure is 4.35 seconds to 60 MPH. That’s 118.9% faster than the market average (for ICE cars), which is 9.52 seconds to 60 MPH, according to the company’s calculations.
