Top five fastest EVs in the world

Here is a list of the fastest EVs available on the planet with up to 413kmph top speed

The current automotive world is swarmed with electric cars, be it daily commuters or EVs with mad accelerating potential. However, in the second category, there are a handful of electric vehicles which are extremely powerful and can devour globally acclaimed ICE-powered supercars at achieving higher top speeds without breaking a sweat. These electric vehicles not only dazzle the world with their style and tech but also eliminate the perception that EVs lack higher top speeds than most ICE-powered supercars. Here are the top five fastest EVs in the world which can give you nightmares if you choose to floor the accelerator.

5. Lotus Evija: 350kmph

The Evija is Lotus’ pride in delivering true performance while also being completely green. The Evija is the first car which debuted after being a part of Chinese EV giant, Geely. This British hypercar has four electric motors and combined they crank out 1973bhp 1703Nm of torque. A 93kWh battery pack powers the electric motors and is developed in collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering. Although these numbers make the Evija fall in fifth place, it is no slouch. The Evija can do nought to 100kmph in ‘under three seconds’ and can attain a top speed of 350kmph. The battery pack holds the capability to fast charge at 800kW.

4. Pininfarina Battista: 358kmph

The Battista is the first fully electric car developed by legendary Italian coachbuilder Pininfarina’s own car-building division, Automobili Pininfarina. The Battista shares its underpinnings with the Rimac Nevera. So it has a similar quad-motor powertrain, boasting a combined 1874bhp and 2300Nm of torque. Despite putting out slightly less power compared to the Nevera, the Battista clocks 100kmph quicker at 1.86 seconds. This makes the Pininfarina Battista the quickest accelerating production car, beating the Aspark Owl as well. As for the top speed, the Battista has recorded 358kmph, which positions it in fourth place in the list. The Battista also sports a similarly sized 120kWh battery pack like the Nevera.

3. Deus Vayanne: 402kmph

If you think a 1500bhp EV is sufficient to terrify you, there is so much more the Deus Vayanne has on offer. The Vayanne is a collaboration between the Austria-based Deus Automobiles, Williams Advanced Engineering, and the Italian coachbuilder Italdesign. This super attractive electric hypercar is powered by a tri-motor powertrain—one at the front and two at the rear axle. Combined they produce a 2213bhp and 2040Nm of twist, making it the most powerful EV ever produced. As a result, the Vayanne is claimed to do 0-100kmph in less than 1.99 seconds and a top speed of 402kmph. Do note that these are computer-simulated numbers, and actual performance could vary when the Vayanne hits the markets in 2025. The Deus Vayanne features an 85kWh battery pack which supports 350kW of DC charging.

2. Rimac Nevera: 412kmph

Being Mate Rimac’s brainchild, the Nevera is a proper hypercar both by looks and performance. It packs four electric motors, one for each wheel, producing a whopping 1888bhp and 2360Nm of torque. Powering the electric motors is a T-shaped 120kWh battery pack, which supports a staggering 500kW DC fast charging, but there is no charging infrastructure available that supports 500kW. The Nevera can clock 100kmph from a standstill in 1.97 seconds, and a top speed of 412kmph, which places it in the second position in this list. However, if the Aspark Owl did not exist, the Nevera could have been the fastest EV on the planet. The top speed of the Nevera is higher than both the McLaren F1 (391kmph)and the original Bugatti Veyron (407kmph).

1. Aspark Owl: 413kmph

The Aspark Owl is Japan’s first all-electric hypercar which was first unveiled as a production model in 2019 at the Dubai International Motor Show, after its concept debut in 2017. Wrapped in carbonfibre, this sleek and extremely potent electric hypercar sports four electric motors, two on each axle, and combined they crank out 1953bhp and 1920Nm of torque. Aspark claims that the Owl can do 0-100kmph in just 1.91 seconds. In addition, the Owl also sits at the top of this list as the fastest EV on the planet with a top speed rated at 413kmph. Surely, these numbers do not match the top speed achieved by the current crop of ICE-powered hypercars like the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport, or the Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut, but in the EV world, these numbers are a massive feat. Powering the Owl’s four electric motors is a rather small 69kWh battery pack which supports 200kW of peak charging speeds. 

With the EV market getting more technologically advanced, it is no doubt that we will witness many more high-performance electric hypercars touching the 450-500kmph mark in the future. The list also ensures that electric cars can go fast, even faster than many supercars in the market.
