If you are still one of those who think that an electric car is slow, it is that you are not very aware of what is ‘cooking’ in the plug-in market. Suffice it to say that there are those capable of doing 0-100 km/h in 6.5 seconds. And this is the least fast of the 10 that we show you below.
The idea that electric cars are slow and boring is less and less true. To demonstrate it, our colleagues at CheatSheet have prepared this classification of what, in their opinion, are the fastest electric cars in the world.
10. Nissan Leaf Nismo RC
This ‘mule’ with the appearance of a racing car is equipped with the engine of its brother, the Nissan Leaf. Of course, it has been aerodynamically optimized, has located its engine in a central position and incorporates rear-wheel drive. The Nissan Leaf Nismo RC accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.5 seconds.
9. Tesla Model S.
Before an electric car is an elegant car. Undoubtedly, one of the models that questions that plug-in plugs are ugly. But it is that, in addition, the Tesla Model S has benefits to match the circumstances: with more than 400 CV it reaches 100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds.
8.EV West M3.
It is the result of mounting a plug-in mechanics on the basis of a BMW M3. There is no data on how long it takes to do 0-100 km/h, but as a reference we can say that it is the fastest electric room to ascend to Pikes Peak:
7. Tesla Roadster.
Before the Model S came along, Tesla broke the four-second barrier by doing 0-60 mph in 3.7 with the Roadster.
6. Drayson Racing B12/69.
Do you think it is possible for an electric car to have 850 hp? It is. The proof is the Drayson B12/69, which with such potential is capable of reaching 100 km/h from a standstill in just three seconds. You can see it in action in this video:
5.Spark Renault SRT_01E
It looks like a Formula 1 car because it is. The Spark Renault SRT_01E was designed to take part in a new form of competition, Formula E. It takes three seconds to get to 100. Don’t you know it? Here is a presentation video:
4. Wright Speed X1.
What does an Atom remind you of? It is normal, because the Wrightspeed X1 is an Ariel Atom with an electric motor. It is not a production vehicle and, according to the manufacturer, it never will be. It accelerates from 0 to 100 in 2.9 seconds. We also show you this on video:
3. Rimac Concept One.
Before we asked you if you thought it was possible to find an electric car with more than 800 CV. Now we raise the bet and we challenge you to find one that exceeds 1,000 CV. Indeed, it exists and it is the Rimac Concept One.
2.Toyota TMG EV P002.
This Toyota holds the record for electric cars in the Nurburgring ringseven minutes and 23 seconds). An unbeatable business card for the second fastest on this list.
1. Plasmaboy Racing White Zombie.
1.8 seconds, that’s how long it takes the fastest electric car in the world to go from 0 to 100 km/h. It is a 1972 Datsun modified and baptized as Plasmaboy Racing White Zombie. To achieve this, it uses batteries originally designed for army helicopters. A car designed for racing with an impressive output.
