It seems that when Tesla first announced the performance numbers for the Model S, they were rather pessimistic with their claimed 4.4 second 0-62 mph or 0-100 km/h time. Several tests have been carried out, and the car has been timed anywhere from 4 seconds dead to around 4.2 seconds.

Now, in this latest onboard video by DragTimes, the Model S yet again does the benchmark sprint in four seconds and no more. This means the all-electric Sedan is seriously quick off the line, and up to around 80-90 mph, and there are genuinely very few cars of any type on the road which could keep up with it.

We are really impressed by the car's performance, in this video, and it just makes us appreciate the Model S even more.

Check out the video above, and be prepared to be amazed by the seamless surge of power the car`s electric motor. Proof of its performance is this video, where the car is put up against a Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG, with 518 hp.
