How long would Santa’s Xmas Eve journey take in the world’s fastest cars? 

Leasing Options revealed that in a standard car travelling at 60mph, delivering presents to over 2.3 billion households would take Santa over 75 years to deliver.

With a top speed of 304.7mph, the Bugatti Chiron would take 14 years to complete Santa’s Christmas Eve trip. It comes in at over 5 years faster than the McLaren F1 which has a top speed of 240mph.

It would take Santa an extra four years to deliver gifts in the fastest EVs compared to petrol

But with cars comes emissions – and if Santa was doing that journey in an ICE vehicle, he’d emit almost 16,000 metric tons of emissions. Just doing one round-trip would take growing over 19,000 forest acres for ten years to offset them. 

While we’re pretty certain reindeers give zero emissions, Leasing Options also crunched the numbers of how long Santa’s journey would take in the world’s fastest EVs. 

They found the Rimac Nevera would take nearly 155 hours (or 18 years) to complete Santa’s Christmas Eve trip.

Despite the Nevera being the fastest when compared to any other EVs, it just doesn’t compare to his sleigh. Leasing Options revealed that, in order to make it in 24 hours, Santa would need to go at least 1,664,369mph. That’s faster than the speed of the fastest aircraft in the world, the Lockheed SR-71 which can reach speeds of 2,100mph.
