According to the movie Spaceballs from 1987 (The Crazy History of Space), what is faster than ludicrous ? In effect : plaid.

“Fastest accelerating SUV”

The Model X also has a Plaid version with the same powertrain and horsepower. Sure, the big SUV puts a bit more weight in motion, but that doesn’t change the fact that a 2.6-second sprint to 100 km/h is still mind-blowing. Tesla has no hesitation in calling the Model X Plaid the fastest-accelerating SUV currently in production. Its price is €143,990 (France: €141,990).
