Not so long ago when the electric cars were nothing but a boring golf carts and today automakers are making an effort to grow rapidly taking over the world and are already competing for the titles of electric supercars with unbeatable impressive speeds with numbers. Today we continue from where we felt out in our previous Top 10 electric supercars to the new added list of top 10 electric supercars in the world. So will this line-up beat the Bugatti’s and Koenigsegg’s or will these manufactures turn themselves to electric cars which read to find out.
Even though hyper-cars at motors shows are not something to be surprised about those that run on electric power are quite rare. The Italian design and manufactured Pininfarina Battista is among the newest in this class. The state of the art commission free beats promises to be on of the fastest cars in the world with 0-60 in under 2 seconds and a top speed of 350 kilometers per hour. The Battista uses a monocoque carbon-fiber body with dynamic design and butterfly doors. Its 120 kilowatt hour battery sends power to four electric motors, one at each wheel which delivers the total output of 1900 horsepower. If somehow you are not amazed, than Pininfarina promises the Battista to have a single charge range of 350 kilometers. It will have a fast charge option which will take just 40 minutes for 80% of the battery charge. For the exclusivity only 150 units of these will be built.
Aiming for the title of the fastest electric supercar in the world, The Japanese Apark Owl becomes 3 time more powerful than originally plant and now carries a 3.5 million dollars price tag. Which is almost a million lower than 4.4 million reported in 2018. The cars come powered by two electric motors that allows for an all-wheel drive system and produce the total output of 1150 horsepower. This powertrain ensures a 0-60 in 1.9 seconds but the car has been actually tested to do 1.8 seconds. This production ready Aspark Owl also boasts a longer driving range of 300 kilometers on a single charge.
Piech Automotive MARK ZERO
Piech Automotive, as a young Swiss German automobile manufacturer that is headed by Anton Piech is the great grandson of Ferdinand Porsche. In 2019 the brand unveiled its first project a fully electric supercar name Mark Zero. This supercar has the Grand tour styling, low stance and large wheels but we are more interested in what is under the polished looks. A new generation battery sends power to three electric motors, one at the front axle and two at the rear with each delivering almost 204 horsepower. The company claims the battery does not heat as much as the other electric supercars and it can be cooled by air alone and is going to be able to recharge to 80% in lesser than five minutes. With this setup the Mark Zero is expected to need just 3 seconds sprint to 0-60 and will concur 500 kilometers of range in full charge.
GFG Style Kangaroo
One of the several wonders of Italian auto making that have been presented in 2019 this concept from GFG Style is what the creators call a hyper SUV.

Its dynamics low slung and designed specifically for track plus the Kangaroo also boasts lightweight carbon-fiber body work, 22 inch wheels and beefed up powertrain. Its 90 kilowatt per hour battery powers two motors which produces a total out-put of 483 BHP. This allows it to go from 0-100 in less than 3.8 seconds and achieve the speeds to 250 kilometers limited. However the Kangaroo unique secret is the hydraulic suspension that has 3 selectable modes.
When talking about the new electric supercars of the world of course we cannot miss the upcoming Tesla Roadster as it is still the most anticipated electric vehicle of the year 2020. The Roadster is expected to undercut the performance brands like the Ferrari, Lamborghini, Mclaren and Porsche. Since the promise performance specifications are truly mind blowing, the 0-60 acceleration should take 1.9 seconds, 0-100 4.2 seconds and quarter mile time to 3.9 seconds might actually get the Roadster a place among the fastest drag racers of all time. The all-new Tesla will get 3 electric motors powertrain with an all-wheel drive capability that connects to a 200 kilowatt per hour battery. Just recently Elon Musk has tweeted that the expected range should be over 1000 kilometers at the highway speeds.
VW I.D.R Supercar
Built to concur the Pikes Peak international hill climb this VW electric car packed some serious capabilities. It sits on the brands new MEB platform which is equipped with a pair of electric motors delivering a total power output of 689 horsepower in addition the IDR only weighs 1,100 kilograms and is capable of going from 0-60 in 2.25 seconds.
