Can you do a burnout with an electric car?
Can electric cars do burnouts as regular cars can?
Answer provided by
Great question, but unfortunately, electric cars cannot do a burnout.
If you were hoping to light some tire fire in a hot new car, you probably shouldn’t go electric. While electric vehicles are continuously praised for their high-performance capabilities, smoky burnouts do not make the list.
Simply put, their computers are too good at analyzing what the car is doing. Meaning it won’t allow the car to do a burnout. Car junkies have tried to make it happen and have done so successfully. But they’ve had to do some tweaking and reprogramming to make it happen, and they’ve mostly agreed that it isn’t worth the hassle.
It would be fair not to expect an electric car to do what a standard muscle car could. But this might change in the future, as giant automaker Dodge intends to release what they’re calling eMusle.
