General info

1.Has fully independent suspension
McLaren P1
Tesla Roadster
This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.
2.Has rear-wheel drive
McLaren P1
Tesla Roadster
Rear-wheel drive benefits from increased traction when accelerating, as the weight of the vehicle shifts to the rear over the drive wheels. The weight of the car is also more evenly distributed, resulting in improved handling.
3.Has four-wheel drive
McLaren P1
Tesla Roadster
Four-wheel drive is a system where torque is distributed to all four wheels of the vehicle. It is beneficial in some circumstances such as providing increased traction in tricky weather conditions, but is most suited to off-road driving.
4.Is a hybrid car
McLaren P1
Tesla Roadster
Hybrid cars run on a mixture of petrol (gasoline) and electric power. They offer several benefits over traditional petrol-powered cars. For example they produce less CO2 emissions, and due to their fuel efficiency they are often cheaper to run.
5.Is an electric car
McLaren P1
Tesla Roadster
An electric car runs off a battery that can be recharged at home or at public charging points. Due to the savings costs of electricity compared to petrol (gasoline) it can greatly reduce running costs, and is also better for the environment as the car produces 0 emissions.
6.Has front-wheel drive
McLaren P1
Tesla Roadster
Front-wheel drive is the most common type of drivetrain and offers several advantages. It is cheaper to manufacture (reducing the cost of the vehicle) and also lighter which helps improve fuel economy. Due to having the weight of the engine over the drive wheels it also benefits from increased traction.

Speed

1.top speed

350km/h

402.3km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.
The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.

Engine

1.Has Stop-Start system
McLaren P1
Tesla Roadster
A Stop-Start system automatically turns off the engine when stopping in traffic or at a red light, and seamlessly starts it again when pressure is applied to the accelerator. This saves fuel and is more ecological.
2.Has a turbocharged engine
McLaren P1
Tesla Roadster
A turbocharger compresses the air entering the cylinders, allowing more air (and therefore more fuel) to be added - resulting in a more powerful explosion. This leads to an increase in horsepower without increasing the size and weight of the engine.
The maximum distance an electric or hybrid car can travel on electric only, from a full charge (EPA-estimated driving range).

Features

1.Has in-car system
McLaren P1
Tesla Roadster
An in-car system (e.g., Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) offers extra functionalities, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.
2.Has a rear-view camera
McLaren P1
Tesla Roadster
A rear-view camera (also known as a back-up camera) provides a view of behind the vehicle, helping to prevent accidents. It is particularly useful in vehicles with large blind spots such as pickup trucks.
3.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
McLaren P1
Tesla Roadster
ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.
4.Has smart key as standard
McLaren P1
Tesla Roadster
A smart key is a wireless key that offers several benefits over a traditional key. For example when you approach the car the doors will automatically unlock, and you can turn the engine on with the press of a button.
5.Has height-adjustable seat belts
McLaren P1
Tesla Roadster
Height-adjustable seat belts permit passengers of different sizes to move the seat belt up or down for improved comfort. They are also especially useful for increasing the safety of children.
6.Has stolen vehicle tracking system
McLaren P1
Tesla Roadster
The vehicle has a tracking system that utilizes GPS, allowing you to locate it in case it is stolen.
