I wonder why it's topping out at 250kph? Power, gear, or artificially limited? It went a little quicker on the downhill so I think it's power.

Scary moment ~25s mark!

Electric motors stop producing power pretty suddenly when pushed beyond their design speed. It has to do with the timing of the coils. Lots of tq but little top end. The Tesla S is limited to 130mph, but runs a 12.6 1/4 mile. It's a strange new world.

I love watching it bounce between regen and go.

I also liked this youtube comment:

"480p. OMG! please! Maybe you guys want borrow my gopro?"

I wonder if there is a better res video and this is a repost.
