Tesla Model 3
Long Range gets an astounding 84 mpg when tested by Car and Driver on highways, so you’re definitely looking in the right place.
As for its acceleration—it generally hits 0-60 in 4.5 seconds. When compared with acceleration times from other luxury sedans, like the 2018
Audi A3
at 6.1 seconds, this is actually quite a quick pace.
Of course, big budget race cars like the Porsche 911 Turbo or the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ will get more lightning acceleration at 2.5 seconds. But for a fraction of the cost—and not to mention, the money saved on gas—0-60 in 4.5 is an excellent time.
