That`s why, since the Model S, there are ever faster performance variants of all Tesla cars. In this case, thanks to its two electric motors, the boringly named Model 3 Performance can go from 0 to 60 in 3.1 seconds and continue at a top speed of 162 miles per hour. At the beginning of November, I was driving a 1,400 hp electric drift car. The imaginatively named Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400 is a unique demonstrator designed to show how entertaining and exciting electric racing can be. The record number of the Battista is impressive, but not totally unexpected. Pininfarina has been promising cross-border performance since the electric vehicle was announced in 2018. Its powertrain includes four electric motors that together pump 1,900 horsepower and 1,696 lb-ft of torque. The car has a top speed of 217 miles per hour, which isn`t a record — it`s part of the Nevera, which has a top speed of 256 miles per hour — but still a brand to be proud of. Almost as impressive is the automaker`s claim that the car has a range of 300 miles thanks to its 120kWh battery provided by Rimac. While the Tesla Model S Performance is no longer on sale in 2021, it was only available for a short time in late 2020 and early 2021. The 2021 Model S Performance was the fastest homologated car sold on the road during its availability. It was not only the fastest car up to sixty, but also the fastest production electric car ever made.
The limited edition Lotus Evija was announced a few years ago and, despite the advent of many fast cars, it remains one of the fastest cars in recent memory. It is made of carbon fiber and was built to be one of the most aerodynamic cars in the world. The Evija has a four-motor setup — an electric motor on each wheel — that sells 1,973 horsepower and 1,254 pound-feet of punch combined! To own one, you would have to spend more than $3 million. Lotus claims that this electric supercar can go beyond 200 miles per hour if given enough asphalt. It`s impressive and makes it one of the fastest electric cars in the world. The 0-60 mph leaves a lot to be desired – by EV standards – as it takes about three seconds to sprint to the mark. It`s by no means discreet, but electric cars have set such standards that even three seconds at 60 mph seem slow. As for range, it could be driven for 250 miles before you have no choice but to plug it in. Impressive car, right? Audi`s soon-to-be-delivered electric sports sedan, the e-tron GT, is a stylish sedan that shares the same platform as the Taycan. The e-tron GT has the largest group of 93.4 kWh, available as an option in the Taycan. The Audi also offered some standard equipment that would be a load in the Porsche, such as 14-way front seats.
Despite being the entry-level e-tron GT, its top speed is 152 miles per hour and can accelerate to sixty in less than four seconds. The Rimac Nevera is the fastest car from 0 to 60 mph. It only takes 1.85 seconds. The Nevera is ridiculous, absurdly fast to be sure. But it doesn`t come close to the fastest gasoline-powered production car, the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+, which reached 304.8mph in 2019. Bugatti became part of Rimac when it was acquired by the company in 2021. The Taycan Turbo S is Porsche`s flagship product that can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 2.6 seconds and produces a maximum of 750 horsepower. It only has an EPA-estimated range of 201 miles, but with performance like this, who cares? The Rimac Nevera has the fastest top speed of 258 miles per hour. There are many other models that we haven`t considered because they`re just concepts or far from production (the Tesla Roadster is lagging behind, but will be out soon, and that`s why it made the cut). These include Estrema Fulminea, Aspark Owl, Pininfarina Battista and Nio EP9 to name a few. We`ll update this list as soon as they`re close to production or we have more new electric cars – which will happen in 2023. Elon Musk likes to build very fast electric cars.
He seems to believe – it`s true! — that the presentation of the performance of electric vehicles is a necessity when cars are sold to a public sceptical of this new technology. Rimac took the takeover of Bugatti very seriously and is now the fastest production electric car in the world at 413 km/h. Rimac set the record at the Papenburg car test track in Germany, using a 4km straight to reach its incredible top speed. The GXE has a pair of 800-horsepower electric motors with 700 pounds of torque. The car is equipped with an 8-speed automatic transmission as standard, but can be ordered with a 7-speed manual transmission. It also gets carbon fiber wheels and carbon-ceramic brake discs. Its battery is now a 61.6-kilowatt-hour unit, which Novation says is enough for 175 miles of range with moderate driving. Rimac (now known as Bugatti Rimac) makes the fastest electric car called Nevera.
While the Tesla Model S Plaid is in the spotlight, many people have probably forgotten that the Model X is also offered with the Plaid treatment. Tesla has found that this electric SUV can travel a quarter mile in less than 10 seconds. It has three motors that drive all four wheels. Together they produce 1,020 horsepower. Thanks to this, the X Plaid model can sprint to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds and has a top speed of 163 mph. This makes it one of the fastest cars on the electric market today. The last time we saw an SUV with such a number of killers was when Dodge released the Durango Hellcat. While the X Plaid model is the performance equipment in the lineup, it`s good to travel 313 miles on a full charge. There`s no word on the battery, but it`s speculated that it will be powered by a 120kWh set.
