The most powerful EVs in the world

The most powerful EVs in the world

Just a little while ago, we would have smiled upon hearing that electric cars could accelerate like internal combustion engine cars. Heavy lead-acid batteries and weak motors didn’t provide the necessary energy, and the short-range was a reason to abandon the idea of using an electric car in everyday life. However, technology is developing, and now we can see with our own eyes how the era of gasoline engines is coming to an end, giving way to EVs. The GetRentacar team has already talked about the most popular electric cars in this article, which included the Nissan Leaf, Mitsubishi I-MiEV, and other cars, and today we will share a list of the fastest electric cars in the world.

Audi RS E-tron GT Quattro

This German car is as fast as the Porsche Taycan. The Audi RS employs the same twin-engine system and a tricky two-speed gearbox, producing 637 hp. That's enough to get to a hundred in 3.1 seconds. It's probably less than Porsche's, but it's enough to rub the nose of not only most electric cars but also internal combustion engine sports cars. 

Tesla Model 3

Tesla rightfully holds the title of the leading manufacturer of EVs, and it isn’t surprising that there are cars from this brand on this list. In the flagship all-wheel-drive configuration, the power output is 449 hp, accelerating the car to a hundred in 3.1 seconds. And it may seem unbelievable, but with each software update, this score increases!

Lotus Evija

When Lotus finally publishes the official info for its 1,923-horsepower hypercar, it will likely move up the list. Until then, we'll have to settle for the Norfolk firm's pessimistic statement of "less than three seconds." Whatever the reality, the Evija is likely to be one of the most exciting to drive, thanks to its class-leading curb weight target of 1,700 kg and a special design that maximizes the enormous performance potential.

Nio EP9

This car has been considered just a concept for a long time, but some time ago, a Chinese company sold 16 copies of this car. The power is amazing — more than 1,340 hp! But the most important thing is not the power, but the performance. According to the developers, the car is built following the specifications of the FIA LMP1, that is, in other words, this is a real racing car, which accelerates to a hundred in 2.7 seconds.

Porsche Taycan Turbo S

It is impossible to overestimate the importance of the Taycan in the list of the most powerful electric cars because every detail of this model is designed to satisfy its owner. And while most of the cars on this list are made to order and in single copies, the Taycan is a production model. The Turbo S's ability to accelerate to 100 km/h in 2.6 seconds is staggering! In addition, the electric car has a high level of drivability and engineering that makes it an industry flagship like the 911.
