However is - Updated 02.2022 – it is also clear that there is not really much that can be done with an electric vehicle in terms of additional performance. In vehicles with combustion engines, however, the situation is completely different. They can be extremely violent modified to get even better performance. But is that enough to defeat the Tesla? In this video it is said to be a heavily tuned Audi RS3 sedan to attempt. She crashes into a brand new Tesla Model S Plaid.
