In the duel with combustion engines, e-cars continue to make up ground.

The electric cars are also strong when it comes to driving performance.

But is it enough against top combustion engines?

A test provides information.

  • Given the triumph of

    electric cars

    , the

    automotive industry is facing

    the greatest challenge in its history.

  • Classic combustion engines are

    often ahead of their challenges

    in disciplines such as

    range

    or price.

  • But the race to catch up is on.

    A popular video on YouTube now shows how far the Stromer has come.

Munich - There were a few simple certainties in the automotive world for many years.

If you wanted to drive fast, you needed a lot of horsepower.

Those who wanted to be on the road faster, even more horsepower - and who wanted to boil off everyone else, bought a

Lamborghini

or a

Porsche

.

But with the triumph of electric cars, the decades-old triad of horsepower, speed and torque got bad scratches.

This is due to the technology.

While conventional

diesel

or

gasoline engines

need a bit of a run-up due to their design in order to deliver their maximum power, the full torque of the electric vehicles is already available when starting.

No wonder that even burned-out combustion engines are increasingly losing out to the E-Power group.

Bugatti: Four electric cars against the icon from the VW group

At a former airport near

Park City

in the US state of

Utah

, the well-known

YouTuber TheStradman has

now organized the ultimate combustion-

electric

duel and brought up heavy equipment.

In the test set-up: A

Bugatti

Veyron

with four turbochargers, 16 cylinders and a grotesque-looking 1001 hp and four e-athletes from the industry leader

Tesla

.

First, the self-confessed supercar fan buttoned up the rather homely

Tesla

Model 3 Performance, which

doesn't stand a chance

in the runway sprint against the HP bolide of the

VW

subsidiary.

Then a

Model X

gets caught

, which can keep up with the Bugatti for a few meters.

But then the four turbochargers of the combustion engine pop in and the violet-colored Veyron leaves the

Tesla

standing as if someone had pulled the charging cable on the SUV on the way.

For the final showdown, TheStradman, whose need-for-speed channel has almost three million followers,

challenges

the “world's fastest

Tesla

”.

It's a

Model S

P100D with the very latest software on board.

According to auto tests, the e-hyper sports car with its 789 hp speeds from zero to 100 in 2.5 seconds.

Bugatti: combustion engine with turbo charger

At the start, the power generator boils down the combustion engine from the Old Continent by almost two car lengths, which the

Tesla

driver acknowledges with incredulous astonishment.

But after igniting the turbocharger rocket in the

Bugatti

, even the challenger to the Californian electric car pioneer no longer sees any land.

“Four starts, four wins,” the Youtuber cheers, euphoric.

But the combustion quadruple from the Utah desert should probably only be a snapshot.

Tesla

boss

Elon Musk

plans to

add

a roadster for speed junkies

as early as next year

.

The US start-up

Lucid also

wants to set an exclamation point in the fight with the traditionalists of the combustion engine.

In the second quarter of 2021, the Californians want

to send

the

Lucid Air

into the race.

The $ 161,500 sedan comes with all-wheel drive - and 1080 hp.

Then the four turbos of the

Bugatti

Veyron could

gradually gasp.
