Tesla Model S Plaid sets new quarter-mile record, according to Jay Leno

  Tesla Model S Plaid sets new quarter-mile record, according to Jay Leno Leno spoke during a new episode of the Spike's Car Radio podcast and said he witnessed the record take place.Leno hasn't said anything else aside from the comments on the podcast and Tesla doesn't operate a public relations department to field requests for comment, so we'll have to take his word for now. However, he said the National Hot Rod Association was also present to make the time official. According to him, the final time is a 9.247-second quarter-mile run at 152 mph. A 10-second quarter-mile time from the factory is always impressive, and doubly so for a car with four doors.

The Yamaha rider, despite hurting his ankle in a heavy crash during practice, romped to his fifth win of the 2021 campaign to edge ever closer to that first world title.
