Difference Between Tesla and Hellcat

On one side we have the visionary Elon Musk-led Tesla, which pride itself in producing some of the world’s best luxury hybrid and electric vehicles, and on the other, the classic and the bold Dodge Hellcat which represents car engineering at its best.

What is Dodge Challenger Hellcat?

The Hellcat is not just any car; it’s one of the most powerful muscle cars ever produced and the Hellcat engine was one of the most powerful engines to be fitted in a muscle car. The Hellcat engine first appeared in the Dodge Challenger SRT and the Charger for the 2015 model year. The first iteration was a monstrous 707hp engine and the legacy continues in the 2021 Challenger SRT Hellcat. It transformed into a meanest machine year after year. At the heart of this big-bodied Dodge coupe is a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 Hemi engine. The Hellcat engine now comes in three carefully-crafted potencies: 717, 797, and 807 horsepower.

The Hellcat Redeye produces an impressive 797hp for strength and boasts a wide body for extra flair. It is titled as one of the fastest mass-produced sedans in the world. There’s a new Challenger Super Stock Model, which features a supercharged 807hp 6.2-liter Hemi High Output engine, which is one of the highest in any production car. The 6.2 Hellcat is a supercharged V8 engine producing 707hp at 6,000 RPM and 600 pound-ft of torque at 4800 RPM. This was the most powerful production car by Chrysler Group when it came out in 2015. The Hellcat was available with an 8-speed automatic or 6-speed manual.  The Challenger line evolved from the base V6 (from 250 to 303 hp) to the most powerful V8 (from 425 to 807 hp).

What is Tesla Model S?

The Tesla Model is an all-electric, super fast vehicle produced by Tesla and introduced in 2012 and had a major revamp in 2021. The Model S is the longest range and the highest performing electric vehicle ever produced. It is low and sleek, and thanks to its aerodynamic design, it’s insanely fast and moves smoothly on the road. It was the top-selling plug-in electric car globally in 2015 and 2016. The Model S is an agile sports sedan which is an absolute marvel of car engineering and depending on which trim you choose, it can travel up to 412 miles on a single charge while delivering blistering acceleration that rivals some of the best supercars in the world.

For 2021, Tesla takes it a notch up with its new top-spec variant, the Tesla Model S Plaid, which is an absolute marvel and specially known for its speed. It packs a whopping 1020 hp from three onboard electric motors and its official top speed is rated at 200 mph. The Plaid is capable of a 0-60 mph time in just 2 seconds. Tesla claims this is the first production car to achieve that milestone. It can go up to 390 miles on a single charge, which is insane, but its six figure asking price is way too much for a family car.

Difference between Hellcat and Tesla


 – The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat comes with a standard 717 hp and a 650-lb-ft of torque, paired with either a 6-speed manual transmission or 8-speed automatic transmission. The Hellcat Redeye pumps it a bit with 797 horsepower at 6,300 RPM and 707 lb-ft torque at 4,500 RPM. At the heart of this big-bodied Dodge coupe is a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 Hemi engine.

The Tesla Model S Plaid packs a whopping 1020 horsepower from three onboard electric motors, offering a full-time all-wheel drive, regardless of the variant you choose. The Model S Plaid is claimed by Tesla as the highest performing sedan ever built. It is also the fastest acceleration of any production electric vehicle, with a breathtaking 0-60 mph in just 2 seconds. The 2020 Model S delivered a blistering 0-60 mph time in 2.4 seconds.

Fuel Economy/MPG

 – According to the EPA, the Challenger SRT Hellcat is rated at 13 MPG in the city and up to 22 MPG on the highway. The Redeye only achieves an EPA-estimated 12 MPG in the city and 21 MPG on the highway. This works out a pitiful combined rating of just 15 MPG.

The Tesla Model S remains an impressive all-electric alternative to its gasoline-powered counterparts when it comes to long-distance usability. For the 2021 Long Range Automatic model, the Model S gets an EPA-estimated combined MPGe rating of 120 – 124 for city and 115 on the highway, which is the highest MPGe rating on an EV and even when compared to the Hellcat.

For 2019, the Hellcat bumped up its horsepower to 717, paired with 8-speed automatic and 6-speed manual transmission. The new Hellcat Redeye packs a supercharged 6.2-liter 797hp engine, which is a mean machine. The Tesla Model S is a powerful, all-electric family car which is an absolute marvel of car engineering with an official top speed of 200 mph. Tesla claims the Tesla Model S Plaid is the first production car to get to 0-60 mph in just 2 seconds, which makes it the quickest electric car to reach that milestone.

Is a Tesla faster than a hellcat?
