We've seen the Tango electric car before. A four-wheel two-seater that looks like it's going to fall over if the wind blows too hard. And we've been skeptical of its acceleration claims...I mean, how can a car that looks like that go from zero to sixty in four seconds?
We are skeptics no more. The Tango just beat the Tesla Roadster in a one-on-one race. It's actually the first EV on EV race I've ever seen. If the camera work had been a little better, maybe we would have felt the excitement more. But when that little guy took off the starting line my heart skipped a beat.
The Tango came in at 14.480 seconds while the Roadster's quarter mile was 14.666. This may have been driver error more than anything. And it's not clear whether the Roadster was fully charged and in optimal condition (since it can do quarter miles in just over 12 seconds) but just the fact that it was close is somewhat alarming.
Rethink everything you know about cars people, EVs change it all.
