Let's put it this way: One flies. One doesn't.
But don't let that fact get in the way of a good race. You might be surprised.
Tesla founder Elon Musk is fond of saying how the all-electric car company makes only fast cars. Australian carrier Qantas Airways Ltd. put that theory to the test with a side-by-side race with one of its Boeing 737-800s.
In what is clearly a well-executed publicity video by two media-savvy companies, Qantas raced the 737 jets alongside a Tesla Model S at Avalon Airport near Melbourne, Australia.
The timing wasn't by accident, either. Tesla made waves around the world a few days before the video was released by announcing details of the company's highly touted electric car for the masses, the Tesla Model 3.
You can watch the video below. Qantas said the company was collaborating with Tesla to create innovative and sustainable transportation solutions for customers. To make the point, Qantas used carbon offsets to effectively eliminate any carbon footprint from emissions resulting from the video shoot.
