new Tesla has 'insane' acceleration

    Big advantage of electric motors (never called an engine like conventional combustion job) is that they reach peak torque at zero revs. Anyone who has driven a turbo knows the grunt available low down. But electric motors blow them out the water. That's why diesel electric locomotives replaced their steam driven peers overnight. Far more power from standing start and far less moving parts. Cars will be no different and we now have cars that will out accelerate a Ferrari at 1/10th the cost.  It's a whole new world for motorists.
    Average EV will use about 35-40 kg high quality G.

    'Elon Musk introduced the idea of an “insane” button on the latest version of the Model S sedan a few months back at a cult-like Tesla TSLA, +0.29%  lovefest in Los Angeles. “You’ll be able to choose three settings: normal, sport and insane,” he said.
    It sounded like a joke, but it wasn’t.
    While Musk is known to throw a few curve balls at the press, he was serious about this one. The button is right there on the dash of the dual-motor Tesla Model S P85D, which is capable of 0 to 60 in just over three seconds. That compares favorably with some of the fastest cars on the road.
    The standard Model S takes 5.9 seconds to get there.
    What does that quiet explosion off the line feel like? Since it costs well over six figures to get your hands on one of these vehicles, the closest you might ever get is this video from YouTube channel DragTimes. The reactions are about what you’d expect. One passenger says, “I think I just s**t in your seat,” while others look like they might be on the verge of cardiac arrest.
    There’s even a potential commercial for what Tesla calls the “iPhone 1G” in there. Here’s the full video, bleeped out as necessary.'
