The first time a Tesla silently rolled up to a drag strip, everyone probably thought it was lost.
What happened next is that the electric car obliterated every other competitor at the drag strip. It didnít matter that it was a Lamborghini or some other famously fast car ó the Tesla continued to devour quarter-miles quicker than everyone else and, in doing so, legitimized its status as a serious competitor and one of the most advanced electric cars money could buy.
I think the Chevrolet
Bolt EV is on a similar path, except with autocross events instead of drag strips. The little electric hatchback/crossover (and the Volt as well) is beginning to form a subculture of autocross fans who are getting used to blazing through courses and setting times that impress onlookers in the same way the Tesla did at the drag strip.
