Advice about electric cars

Fastest electric cars FAQs

The highly contested title for fastest electric road car in the world is currently claimed by the Rimac Nevera with a 1.81-second 0-62mph time. It's also the fastest in terms of maximum speed, capable of 256mph.

The fastest Tesla currently on sale is the 1,020hp Tesla Model S Plaid. It is capable of a 1.99-second 0-60mph time and a 200mph top speed.

The Porsche Taycan is currently capable of adding 650 miles of range in an hour, of course it doesn’t have a battery that big, but it does mean that it can be fully charged in under 30 minutes.

The Kia EV6 and Hyundai Ioniq 5 both offer similarly rapid charging capabilities, however as with all EVs, the total time taken also depends on the speed of the charger and the level of charge in its battery.
