How much is the real Horsepower of the Tesla Model S Plaid?

The Tesla Model S Plaid has three electric motors, one front and two at the rear, which deliver a total of 1,020 Horsepower and the 0-96 km/h (0-60 mph) do it in 1.99 seconds, 0-100 km/h in 2.1 seconds, the 400m does it in 9.23 seconds, it has a top speed of 322 km/h and a range of 637 km/h.

Uptown Autosport wanted to see how many of the above electric horses arrive on the road and for this reason it placed it on the Mainline Prohub dynamometer, which according to the company is the most expensive on the market.

It should be noted that there are many carmakers who declare less horsepower compared to the one that actually produce their cars and we are talking about conventional (thermal) vehicles and not purely electric ones.

As you can watch in the video below the dynamometer showed that the maximum power on the wheel hubs was 1,101.2 horses, while the maximum torque was 1,227 Nm. In a second graph, the performance of the Model S Plaid appears to be 1,067.3 horses and 1,191 Nm, with the battery charge state (SOC) at 91%.
