This year, traditional fossil-fuelled supercars need to be on the lookout. The year of electric cars is 2023. The development of EVs is accelerating as we approach the ban on fossil fuel vehicles in just 7 years. This year, electric supercars are raising the bar. For acceleration, speed, and power, they are breaking records. But which electric supercars are the best right now? Let’s look.
The fastest Lotus ever is also the quietest and most expensive, costing an astounding £2 million. Although, that number does not stop the orders coming in! The Lotus Evija has an astounding top speed of over 200 mph and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than three seconds. This makes it an incredibly strong competitor within the EV supercar market.
Porsche Taycan S
A big four-door saloon that doubles as a supercar is the Porsche Taycan S. An opulent continent-cruiser with astonishing performance metrics: With a top speed of 162 mph, 2.8 seconds are quoted for 0-60 mph. To provide the best all-weather handling, two electric motors send power to all four wheels.
With a top speed of 206 mph, the Drako GTE is up there with some of the fastest electric cars. Only 25 are anticipated to be built, coming in at a price over £1-m. It stands out vehemently from other electric vehicles thanks to its modern styling and striking red color. It has a 90-kWh, 450-volt unit with 10,000 cells that can deliver 1,800 amps continuously and 2,200 amps in a peak.
The Askpark Owl has been under development since 2018, with the aim to be the fastest accelerating electric car. It certainly appears to be fast, with 186 mph approaching in just 10.6 seconds. Appearance wise, it consists of a carbon fibre bodywork wrapped around a carbon fibre monocoque with two electric motors providing power to all wheels. Aspark only plans to produce 50 models.
Every time there is discussion of electric cars, Elon Musk manages to make an appearance some way or another. With a predicted top speed of more than 250 mph and a barely believable 0 to 60 mph time of 1.9 seconds, the company modestly refers to its upcoming product as “the quickest car in the world.” A coupe-style model with seating for four passengers and a detachable glass roof is depicted in official photos. Having been promised for five years, deposits are now being accepted as of 2023. However, wether or not it is reliable is uncertain.
