Electric cars have been generating a lot of buzz recently. It seems like every manufacturer is making an electric car in one form or another. But which truly offers supercar performance for your money?
We’ve got you covered. Read on, and discover 10 of the fastest electric cars to ever grace the roads.
When the Tesla Roadster launched, precious few people really paid attention. Surely this was just another boring tourer. There’s no way it could compete with the established marques, right?
How wrong we were. The Roadster can achieve a frankly ridiculous top speed of over 200 mph. It can also hit 60 in fewer than two seconds. This is performance that beats even established supercars like the Ferrari LaFerrari.
Rimac entered the public consciousness with The Grand Tour. If you’ve ever watched this show, you may remember Richard Hammond crashing one of these electric supercars while in its native Croatia.
The C_Two is its less-than catchily named descendant. This car is truly incredible, however. It can accelerate from 0-60 in just 1.85 seconds, continuing on to a top speed of 258 mph.
Faraday Future FF91
You would never look at a Crossover SUV and think it looks quick. Enter the FF91. This model by small Californian company Faraday can hit 60 in 2.5 seconds. Its range isn’t half bad either, estimated at around 300 miles.
Would you like something different to the modern sensibilities of a Tesla? Then look to the old world charm of the Jaguar I-Pace.
This car comes with all of the tech that you would expect in a modern supercar. However, it also has the accouterment of a high-end Jag. If you need acceleration, the I-Pace has got your back, hitting 60 in just 4.5 seconds.
This Aspark Owl isn’t like any other supercar out there. It’s totally electric and has a decent range, but its acceleration is pure absurdity. It can hit 60 mph in around 1.6 seconds and has a top speed of around 249 mph.
The best part? It’s street-legal. Take it out and have some fun.
Chinese marques probably aren’t the first that you think of when looking at electric supercars. The Nio EP9 might just change your mind.
This incredible car makes 1341 horsepower. As such, its 0-60 is an impressive 2.7 seconds, and it has a top speed of 194 mph.
While we don’t have the exact specs on the Battista, it’s going to be nothing less than extraordinary. It looks somewhat like a Pagani Zonda, and packs performance that would make even a Huayra feel inadequate.
The Battista has 1900 horsepower. Soak that fact in for a second. Its predicted top speed is 217 mph and its 0-60 should be under two seconds.
The upcoming Porsche Tayan is a real mainstream rival to the Tesla Roadster. This beauty promises the steering abilities that have made Porsche famous, along with tremendous electric power.
Its top speed will be at least 162 mph, but its acceleration is what truly makes it shine. The Taycan should be able to accelerate to 60 mph in just 2.6 seconds.
This electric supercar hails from Singapore. It also appears to be somewhat stuck in development hell. This is a shame because it looks absolutely gorgeous.
Its electric powerplant is no slouch, either. It supposedly generates over 1000 horsepower and should be able to break the 200 mph barrier. If it ever gets made, you can bet it will be pricey.
Buckeye Bullet 3
This isn’t exactly a production car. It’s barely even a car. This thing was made to break the electric land speed record, and it did so handily.
Made by Ohio State University, this rocket was able to hit 342 mph out on the flats. Don’t count on seeing this one on the roads soon.
