That's very likely too, they don't want to over promise on the numbers and deal with any backlash if they can't deliver.I think Ford is being conservative with the specs because they knew Tesla's Model Y numbers are the segment's benchmark. Ford also knew that Tesla was going to exceed the Y's initial specs, but by how much was the question.
Tesla laid their cards out on the table with 315 miles of range (on 255mm wide tires, no less) with a 0-60 in 4.8 seconds. Now that Ford knows what the bar has been set at, we can expect an improvement to the Premium AWD ER acceleration time and range.
It really was fighting on that floor to go faster.That’s great acceleration on a surface that is almost the equivalent of an ice sheet. Awd did well to keep a straight line, so did the breaks. I am bummed its going to be another 6+ months before I could get a road test
That's a funny looking Taycan.Found a video on Twitter that shows a first-person view of the Taycan accelerating.
