It looks like the Tesla Model S car is a little faster than most had expected, after it completed a quarter mile sprint in just 12.371 seconds. The trial took place at the Palm Beach International Raceway in Florida.

After the race, the National Electric Drag Racing Association awarded the Tesla Model S with their badge for "the quickest production vehicle" in quarter mile tests. The vehicle managed to reach a 12-second average after multiple spins around the track from its 416HP electric engine.

 

That's not bad at all for an electric car, and even better considering a single charge will give you 350 miles of driving.
