These new luxurious electric cars are exactly what you picture when imagining the vehicle of the future. Stepping into one is like jumping forward in time 100 years.
Not only are they great for the environment because they don't depend on fossil fuels, but they are gorgeous, quick, and game-changing. Sit in awe and wonder as you take a look at the 10 fastest electric cars.
When you think of electric cars saving the world, Tesla is likely the first name that comes to mind. Named after the scientist Nikola Tesla, who was integral to the development of modern electricity, this car company provides both energy efficiency and insane speed.
The Tesla Roadster can reach a top speed of 250 miles per hour. It can also accelerate from zero to 60 in 1.9 seconds, and from zero to 100 in 4.2 seconds, as one of the fastest electric cars you can buy.
Tesla Model S
Remember that scene in I, Robot where Will Smith's character is reading files while his car drives itself? Yeah, that's not sci-fi anymore—it's real life.
The Tesla Model S comes with full self-driving hardware and touchscreen functionality, that can control just about everything in the car. You literally need only lift a finger to operate this car. Of course, you can drive it yourself, which is the fun part about owning one of the fastest electric cars.
Aston Martin RapidE
In case you hadn't noticed, the fastest electric cars come from top of the line companies; so they have pretty hefty price tags. Aston Martin, one of the most luxurious car brands in the world, has its own stake in the race for the world's fastest commercial electric vehicles.
With only 155 cars of this model on the market, the Aston Martin RapidE is truly a rarity in every sense of the word. The company's CEO, Andy Palmer, is confident that this car will stick it to Tesla.
One of the coolest, most gorgeous cars in the entire world is the Renault Trezor. Forget doors, this beauty opens from the top to reveal its stunning interior. The red color was chosen by the designers to evoke a sense of sensuality.
Like the other fastest electric cars in the world, the Renault Trezor comes with the self-driving feature and is managed almost entirely via touchscreen. Since the car doesn't have a traditional gas powered engine under the front hood, you can use it to store your luggage.
Faraday Future FF91
Again we have a car company that is named after a world-famous scientist, Michael Faraday, who made incredible leaps forward in the study of electromagnetism. The Faraday Future FF91 car named after him is an outstanding innovation in the automotive industry.
One of the most remarkable aspects of this fast electric car is its 1050 horsepower. To give you an idea of what that means if you're not a car aficionado, the average car you see on the road only has about 120 to 200 horsepower. "Impressive" does not do this car justice.
The Nio EP9 is unlike any sports car in the world. This car has ranked amongst the fastest electric cars in the world, after it broke two world records. It has an unheard of 1,360 horsepower.
This beast completed the 13 mile Nordschleife circuit at the Nürburgring in Germany, where it set a lap record of 7 minutes and 5.12 seconds. In case you're unfamiliar, that course is one of the most difficult and dangerous in the racing world, and is commonly referred to as "The Green Hell."
The Nio EP9 also broke the record for fastest lap around the Circuit Paul Ricard in France. It only took 1 minute and 52.78 seconds.
Chevrolet Corvette Genovation GXE
Like baseball, driving a Corvette is an American pastime. Unlike the Corvettes of the past, though, this Chevrolet Corvette Genovation GXE does not touch one drop of gasoline. It clocks in at a top speed of 209 miles per hour. If you have $750,000 to spare, the Chevrolet Corvette Genovation GXE can be yours!
Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet
This car can definitely hold its own in terms of being one of the fastest electric cars, but it also has another extremely impressive feature. People knock electric cars because of how long it takes to charge the battery, but that will not be an issue if you get this.
The typical electric car can take anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours to fully charge. The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet takes an astonishing five minutes to charge the car up with 62 miles.
Rimac Concept One
The Rimac Concept One is one of the most powerful car on this list, beating out the Farraday Future FF91 with 1,224 horsepower. It can drive one quarter of a mile in under 10 seconds and tops out at 220 mph.
Simply put, this car is crazy. When they call it a supercar, they mean it.
Porsche Mission E
Porsche is synonymous with ultimate luxury. It should come as no surprise, then, that they would release one of the best electric cars in the world. The designers kept elements from the signature Porsche design. while at the same time innovating the vehicle for aerodynamic purposes. It's consumer-friendly, yet is still able to maintain a spot amongst the fastest electric cars.
