A Tesla Model X plaid delivers a sobering reality check to this Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.

The brand-new Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 was pitted against a Tesla Model X Plaid during the past weekend,

 and the result was a sobering reality check. Although the Camaro had 650 horsepower, the electric-powered Model X had 1,020 hp,

more than double that of the Camaro. Even more impressive was the immediate torque it was able to deliver,

which allowed it to pass the Camaro with ease at all speeds. Early on, it was clear that this would be a difficult match for the Camaro,

and in the end, its power output and reduced weight could not cope with the Model X's cutting-edge technology.

This display, albeit astounding in and of itself,

serves as yet another illustration of how far electric vehicles have come and how competitive the market is now.
