Electric sports cars FAQs

Seeing as electric cars are still a relatively new phenomenon (though they’re becoming more and more popular all the time), there aren’t all that many electric sports cars available to buy just yet. Over time this will change as EVs become even more common, but for now most car makers are focussing on launching electric cars that have the most mainstream appeal - such as electric family SUVs.

Not counting multi-million pound electric hypercars such as the Rimac Nevera, the Porsche Taycan and Audi e-tron GT are arguably the only bonafide electric sports cars available for ‘normal’ amounts of money. That said, in the next few years they’ll be joined by battery-powered versions of the Porsche Cayman, Audi R8 and Maserati MC20 - all of which should be properly fun EV sports cars.

The fastest electric sports car that is included in this list is the Porsche Taycan. If you go for the range-topping Turbo S version, you’ll be getting your hands on a family-friendly electric performance saloon that’s not only capable of accelerating to 60mph from a standstill in just 2.8 seconds, but one that can go on to hit a top speed of 162mph too. Another honourable mention from this list is the range-topping Audi RS e-tron GT (0-60mph in 3.3 seconds, limited top speed of 155mph).

The Tesla Model S Plaid is also an exceptionally fast electric car, but it's worth noting that while you can buy it in the UK, it's only offered in left-hand drive. With 1,020hp it’ll accelerate to 60mph in a staggering 2.0 seconds, and max out at 200mph. The ultimate electric sports car, however, is the Rimac Nevera. Priced at around £2,000,000, this Croatian hypercar is the fastest EV in the world, with a top speed of 258mph.

If you’re looking for an electric sports car that won’t break the bank, it has to be the MG4 XPower. For about £35,000 – the price of many regular electric hatchbacks – you get 435hp and 600Nm of torque. The 3.8-second 0-60mph time makes the XPower quicker than many petrol sports car – and in a Carwow drag race it left a Nissan GT-R and Lamborghini Gallardo in its dust.

Because electric sports cars tend to develop considerably more power from their motors than your average, run-of-the-mill electric family SUV will, their range often tends to be a bit lower. 

That’s not to say you’ll find yourself unable to drive long distances in one, however – the Tesla Model 3 can do up to 421 miles. That’s enough to get you from London to Edinburgh in one hit, providing you drive very sensibly. But allowing for fast-charging top ups during motorway service station coffee breaks, the journey would still be pretty fuss-free.
