In 2017, we stand at the crossroads of a paradigm shift in the evolution of clean energy-driven trleftansport systems. Our cities are growing both in size and population in an exponential way. This means an inevitable damage to the flora and fauna in densely populated regions. Developing countries like India, China, Brazil, and others will have to pay the cost of economic growth sooner than later. Major cities in the developing world are within the radar alerts  of the Environmentalists. Hence, the demand and growth of EV vehicles were inevitable. Consumer EV’s during their early stages of development faced a host of problems ranging from a dearth of charging booths to slow and limited options. But over the last decade companies have found solutions to almost all such roadblocks.

The EV’s are now not only affordable but also a style statement for the upper classes. The electric cars are not only affordable today but also cloak speeds that would give  ‘Hermes’, the Greek Messenger God, a run for his money. Electric cars are now faster and smarter than their diesel/petrol siblings. It may be right to term this period in the history of human revolutions as the “The Electric Age”. In this blog, we bring you the top five fastest electric supercars in the world. They are.

1. Rimac C_Two

Croatian Automaker Rimac owes a lot of its fame to the British presenter and journalist Richard Hammond who during one of his grand tour shoots rolled the Rimac Concept One it down a hill and witnessed it turn into ashes. There is little confirmation on what effect the incident had on the makers of the EV but Hammond must be thanking the Concept One’s extremely rigid carbon fiber passenger cell for saving his life.

 The next offering from the EV maker, Rimac C_Two was years ahead of its predecessor in terms of performance and efficiency. Powered by four in-wheel electric motors the beast can give BATMAN’s batmobile a good run for money both in looks and power. It churns out  1888 hp and 2300 Nm of torque. The claimed top speed of 413 km/h is enough to sweep sport car lovers off their feet. It borrows little from earlier Concept One and built up from ground zero. It claims a full charge range of 640 km plus standstill to  100 km/h acceleration in  1.85 seconds.

2. Faraday Future FF 91

Michael Faraday can rightly be termed as the father of electromagnetism. Electromagnetism is the underlying principle that governs the mechanism s of electrically driven vehicles. True to its name, the Faraday Future FF 91,  amidst reports of a premature shutdown, it seems has risen from the vault. Backed by fresh investments, the FF 91 is roaring and raring to hit the roads.

The three electric motors driven EV claims 0-100 km/h acceleration in 2.39 seconds!. The 1050 hp generating beast also features torque vectoring and four-wheel steering to ensure it can corner hard. The FF91 can cloak  480 km in one full charge. The FF91 design has all the like of an ideal commercial vehicle with proper boot space for long family rides.

3. Nio EP9

NIO EP9 has its Chineses makers design philosophy written all over it. The small curved front headlights couple perfectly with the front grille design are reminiscent of a black panther grim.
The Nio EP9 scores high at the back of an aerodynamic design that gives it uncharted acceleration. The acceleration timings are 0-100 km/h in 2.7 seconds, 0-198 km/h in 7.1 seconds and 0-298 km/h in 15.9 seconds.

Under the hood, the Nio EP9 is powered by in-wheel motors. It churns out 1,341 hp. To put things into better perspective as far as speed is concerned, consider this fact: “Nio EP9 completed the Nurburgring circuit in a blistering 6:45 whereas Lamborghini Huracan took seven seconds approx. It weighs around 17635 kg and is aerodynamically equipped to generate more downforce than a Formula 1 car.

4. Faraday Future FF 91

Tesla Roadster will need a single article on its own. The car that could make or break Tesla is already on a voyage through space towards our solar neighbor, Mars. Tesla Roadster is on a journey of its own among the EV’s flooding the booming market. The main USP is, however, the ludicrous mode that renders Tesla Roadster a Supercar status. The space journey, the ludicrous mode and add to it the growing concern on sales: Roadster is writing a fairytale script of its own. We will let destiny decide Tesla Roadsters journey on and above the blue planet and for the time being drop an eye on the specs. From tending only to premium customers during its teething stage, Tesla is now a major stakeholder as far as the commercial liable EV vehicles are concerned. The main USP of the Tesla Roadster is the LUDICROUS MODE. Tesla Roadster generates power from a combination of three electric motors.

Two of which are placed at the rear and coupled to the front electric motor. Tesla claims that the Roadster can cloak 0-96 km/h 1.9 seconds, 0-160 km/h in 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 400 km/h. It can take you as far as 992 km’s in one full charge. Even, amidst reports of discomforting sales, Elon Musk, Ceo Tesla Motors, it seems is hell bent on delivering the best in its class commercial vehicle for EV car lovers. His recent tweets hint towards a more efficient and powerful future roadster. We, however, have our fingers crossed and wait till the ‘Starman’ finds a David Bowie fan on MARS!!. (“If musk really meant to sent the Roadster to Mars rather than just being another clever marketing strategy”).

5. Vanda Dendrobium

‘Dendrobium’ seems an unusual name for an electric car but one look at the white beauty and you stand mesmerized by the unusual orchid shape inspired design. In addition to this designers and developers of the car was the F1 Williams team which explains the overall race car design theme of the ‘Dendrobium’.

Besides the great cosmetics, Vanda Dendrobium looks impressive on paper as well. The “Batmobile” electric car boasts of a top speed of above 320 km/h as well as an acceleration of 0 to 100 km/h in a ridiculous 2.7 seconds. Made in Singapore, the Vanda Dendrobium will be made available for sale in limited numbers and come with a price tag of at least one million British pounds.
