We are big fans of the TV show Mythbusters, so when we found out about their tests pitting gas vehicles against electric vehicles in 5 extreme tests, we couldn’t help but take notice. The myth: gas vehicles better perform better than electric. The truth, according to Mythbusters, is that electric vehicles outperform their gas-powered counterparts. BUSTED !
In a final test they pitted an X1 Wrightspeed, an electric supercar prototype, vs a Ferrari. The winner…the electric vehicle, busting the ultimate myth, that electric vehicles have no real muscle behind them.
We look forward to seeing the show when it airs on the Discovery Channel, and hope that the team decides to tackle other similar myths.
