There are plenty of reasons to get an electric card nowadays. They’re affordable, it costs less to maintain them, and you’re doing good for the environment. However, there seems to be a misconception that electric cars are for the faint of heart. Electric cars are plenty fast, enough to get you from where you are to where you need to go. Let’s take a look at some of the fastest electric cars in order.
The Nissan Leaf is affordable, has relatively cheap maintenance, and most importantly, it’s fast. It can get up to 60 mph in a little under 8 seconds. On top of that, the Nissan Leaf has a relatively low center of gravity, making it one of the more agile electric cars on the streets today. We’re not sure why they chose a name as emasculating as a “leaf” but for its relatively low price, they can call it whatever they want.
Hyundai Kona Electric
Hyundai Kona Electric can go almost 300 miles on a full charge. It can get up to 62 mph in only 7.6 seconds. We’re not sure why you would want to go that fast in such a short amount of time, but if you do you can — in a Hyundai crossover SUV.
Tesla Model S P100D
Of course, the fastest car on this list is going to be a Tesla, the company owned by a guy who put a car into space and left it there. The Tesla Model S P100D can get up to 60 mph in only 2.5 seconds. At that point, you might as well disappear off of the map with this car. Pull up to a red light to a guy with his gas guzzler revving his engine hoping to race and then dash off in a trail of rainbows.
