Fastest Electric Cars in the World
There is no dearth of electric cars in the market now. We aren’t just talking about the urban commuters, but also fast electric cars. There are many new automakers that start their electric car journey with fast cars or electric supercars. Companies like Estrema, Aspark, and even Tesla, for that matter, came up with fast electric sports cars or electric supercars. While some have faded into oblivion after showing us promising concepts, some have weathered the storm and are either into production or will enter production.
Here’s a list of the eight fastest electric cars in the world today that are in the production stage or about to enter production. Some of these fast cars are from mainstream automakers, some from established EVmakers, and some from new start-ups.
The Best Electric Family Cars for 2022
As of 2022, it’s safe to say that EVs are mainstream. With all major mass-market automakers offering multiple EVs in their portfolio, it is confusing to choose one. EVs, with their convenience and refinement, make for great family runabouts if the range isn’t a major concern, but, with a whole range of EVs to choose from, the decision-making process is getting increasingly difficult. So, here is a list of 10 EVs that we think should be on your list if you are on the lookout for an electric family car.
2023 Toyota BZ4X Review: Radically Different But Underachieving
Someone must have told Toyota that electric vehicles are supposed to be different. For its first dedicated EV, the company applied that lesson with blacked-out fenders, a fabric-upholstered dashboard, an inscrutable gear selector, and an alphabet-soup name.
The result is the 2023 Toyota bZ4X — the “bZ” standing for a new all-electric “beyond zero” subbrand. At the same time, the bZ4X is more “normal” than many other leading EVs. It focuses on a smooth, quiet ride over explosive power and sporty handling. And despite its quirks, the Toyota’s interior is more plush than ultramodern.
Priced from $42,000 before a $7,500 federal tax credit, the bZ4X is a front-wheel-drive-based crossover that slots between the compact and mid-size segments. Toyota co-developed it with Subaru, which will sell a near-clone of the bZ4X as the Solterra. We just spent a week in a preproduction bZ4X to see how it fits into the fast-growing electric crossover segment.
Rendering: An Off-Road Tesla Cybertruck With the Angles to go Anywhere
The Tesla Cybertruck is one of the most anticipated yet controversial vehicles in recent times. This is mainly due to the fact that the all-electric pickup truck from Tesla was unveiled back in 2019 and despite numerous preorders, still hasn’t seen the light of day. While Elon Musk assures us that the Cybertruck will go on sale in 2023, Tesla may have dropped the ball since other carmakers have, not only brought it up, but beat Tesla to the EV pickup truck game, a case in point being the Ford F-150 Lightning, Rivian R1T, and the GMC Hummer EV.
2022 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid - Performance, Price and Photos
Your average mid-size sedan is an entity that is often dismissed as boring. However, you can’t say the same about the current Hyundai Sonata. The car you’re looking at made its debut for the 2020 model year and the Korean automaker sure has injected a good dose of style with this eighth-generation model. But there is so much more to the new Sonata apart from style.
Hyundai also brought a lot of new on-board technology, never before seen in this segment, and to top it all off and make it more relevant in current times, chose to add a hybrid model to the line-up. Now hybrid vehicles are well-known for their excellent fuel economy and Hyundai is focusing on many details with the latest Sonata midsize sedan to challenge the Japanese dominance in the segment. So what makes the Sonata Hybrid tick? Well, let’s find out.
Top 10 EVs With The Longest Range In 2022
EVs have dawned upon us and have become competent mainstream alternatives to cars with internal combustion engines in the last few years. While their performance was never in doubt, available range has led to some pretty extreme anxiety. The range was one of the major reasons why most folks were skeptical about switching to green cars. But, things are quite different now. Technology is getting better every single day and automakers are able to improve the range of cars like never before. Gone are the days when achieving even 400 miles of range was a distant dream. Today, cars like Lucid Air offer more than 500 miles of range and Tesla more than 400 miles. Concept cars like the Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX claim to offer over 600 miles of range. It won’t be too long before that becomes a reality, too. For now, here is a list of EVs that offer the best range in 2022.
Ford’s EV Lineup Will be Radically Different
Ford CEO Jim Farley says the future EVs from the blue oval will not simply be electrified versions of current models. This means that the brand’s lineup will grow considerably, and it has even been said that fans of current models might not like the future electric models.
How Gordon Murray Will Take on Mainstream Automakers Like Volkswagen
There are not many new cars in the world today that can give a truly raw and authentic driving experience similar to that of a proper race car while also being drivable on the street on a daily basis. However, that was the intent of GMA-Gordon Murray Automotive. The T.50 comes with only a 6-speed manual gearbox, a naturally aspirated V-12 with a rev limiter over 10,000 RPM, and a driver’s seat set right in the middle of the car.
The T.33, while it still carries the same attitude and has an extremely similar V-12 and gearbox, it is a bit cheaper and more conventional. Now though, this bastion of V-12s and stick shifts is looking to develop something a bit different - a pair of electric SUVs.
An EV Price War Could Bring Major Trouble for Tesla and the Electric Car Market
One of the main problems with Electric cars is that they are incredibly expensive to buy up front. Sometimes the sticker price can be up to $14,000-$15,000 more than their gasoline-powered cousin. However, the gap in price between these two kinds of automobiles is closing, and Ford’s CEO, Jim Farley, thinks it will eventually come to a head.
2022 Volkswagen ID.5 - Performance, Price, and Photos
Meet the Volkswagen ID.5, the German automaker’s first-ever all-electric coupé SUV. Unveiled in November last year, the ID.5 follows in the footsteps of its more practical sibling, the 2021 Volkswagen ID.4.
While both EVs utilize VW’s MEB platform, currently being adopted across several brands within the Volkswagen group, the ID.5 brings certain vital updates that will be key to the ID brand’s future success. Also, the ID.5 sits right in the middle of VW’s plan to stop selling gas-powered vehicles in Europe by 2035. So, what’s the difference between ID.4 and ID.5? Let’s get straight to it.
This Mercedes Vision AMG Concept is the Future of German High Performance
Meet the Vision AMG, Mercedes’ show car that showcases the future of Mercedes-AMG. This is a four-seater, all-electric sports coupe concept that embraces electrification. It’s now clear that all-electric powertrains are now the next big thing for the folks from Affalterbach.
Spy Shots: What in the World is This Mystery Electric Car?
An All-Electric Ford GT Could Dominate The Supercar Segment
With an investment of $22 Billion towards electrification, Ford is betting big on EVs. Iconic names like the Mustang and North America’s best-selling vehicle, the F-150 (sold-out) have already taken the plunge with the Mach-E and the Lightning pick-up.
While these vehicles cater to a broader audience in terms of being accessible, what about cars at the other end of the spectrum? With such large investments toward EVs in the pipeline, it’s not hard to imagine heritage names like the GT could also make this transition. These exclusive renders from our sister outlet, Hotcars, should give you an idea of what a potential Ford E-GT could look like.
An Early Enthusiast’s Guide To The Ford Mustang Mach-E
Like it or not, the Mustang Mach-E is now part of the American landscape. In case you are considering one or have already taken the plunge and got yourself an all-electric pony, then what are the options to spruce up your Mach-E? Can you tune the Mach-E to deliver more power or better handling? Your options are limited for now, but they aren’t non-existent.
The Fisker Ronin Will Birth Its Own Unique Segment
Fisker Automotive seems to have made it a mission to give us cars that defy current trends. While it certainly is risky business, the company’s latest creation – the Fisker Ronin – is one that might actually be embraced wholeheartedly by the public. That’s because the Fisker Ronin brings back a body style that we haven’t seen in over 50 years – the four-door convertible. Moreover, it boasts impressive figures, which could make even those looking at a Tesla Model S Plaid reconsider.
Is The BMW i4 Worthy Enough To Be The Tesla Model 3 Killer?
In his latest video, Doug DeMuro got to check out the new BMW i4 M50, which is supposedly the Bavarian automaker’s all-electric take on the 4 Series Gran Coupe. As with any Doug video, this is an in-depth tour of the first-ever all-electric BMW to be given the full M treatment. Granted this is an M Sport model rather than an out and out M, but with 536 horsepower on tap, I don’t see anyone complaining.
It’s no surprise that with that the i4 M50 is aimed squarely at the Tesla Model 3 Performance. The Polestar 2 was yet another noteworthy model that also goes up against the Tesla. Coming back to how the i4 stacks up against the Model 3 (457 horsepower), while it is more powerful as opposed to the Tesla, the Model 3 has a considerably longer range at 315 miles as opposed to the BMW’s 270 miles.
The Upcoming DeLorean’s Full Length Light Bar Finally Reveals Itself
In more DeLorean news, the automaker has teased us with yet another clip that shows off the upcoming all-electric sports car’s full-length light bar and the backlit logo, set against a red backdrop. First we saw the gull-wing doors and the louvers, and now the light bar. The automaker sure knows how to keep the hype, eh?
Tug-of-War: Does The AMG G63 Come Out On Top, Or Does It Succumb To The BMW X7 And iX?
The ‘Carwow’ team, spearheaded by Mat Watson, staged a tug-of-war between three SUVs that belong to different segments. One is a new EV, the other, its sibling, a luxurious family SUV, and the final one, an iconic off-roader. We are talking about the BMW iX, the BMW X7, and the Mercedes-AMG G63. Since this is a tug-of-war, you’d expect the G63 to be the winner, since it comes with a lot of tech and equipment that has to do with traction and stability. But, is that really the case?
This Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo Sets a Guinness Record For The Highest Number Of Donuts
It’s safe to say that the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo is the first all-electric, high-riding station wagon. It’s also pretty quick with the power output ranging from 476 to 761 horsepower, depending on the version. This means that, if the driver so chooses, it can kick its rear end out without much effort, which is why it managed to set a Guinness World record for the highest number of donuts executed on ice.
