The Fastest, Newest Electric Cars

Electric cars have been on the roads since the previous century, but they did not reach the masses until recently. Although there are many reasons for this, the trend now seems to be in favor of electric cars, with increasing environmental concerns, manufacturers’ efforts to get away from tightening emission values, and a brand like Tesla coming from scratch and producing the best-selling car models in the world. The show also works in the electric car market, and titles such as being the fastest or the strongest make a splash all over the world. In our article where we compiled the world’s fastest electric cars, we would like to remind you that some models have not yet hit the roads, but it has been announced that they will be available for sale soon!

Tesla Roadster

It started selling the Roadster model in 2008. With the batteries added to the Lotus Elise chassis, Tesla was able to put the formula, which had been tried by a few boutique entrepreneurs before, into mass production. At that time, contacts with brands such as Daimler yielded results and new investments were added.

The first figures are incredible: 0-100 km/h acceleration in 1.9 seconds, 403 km/h maximum speed, 1,000 km electric range. Tesla Roadster, which breaks records in almost every field, was to be on the roads in 2020, but it was announced by company CEO Elon Musk that mass production could only start as of 2024 and the first deliveries were postponed to 2025. The first 1,000 people who paid $250,000 6 years ago are still waiting for the day when the cars will be delivered! During this period, many alternatives to the Tesla Roadster are ready to hit the roads!

Rimac Nevera: A real car and on the roads!

According to some, Elon Musk continues to “sell dreams”. If you want a record-breaking electric car that you can actually buy, here’s the Rimac Nevera. Although the performance figures between Tesla Roadster and Rimac Nevera are close, there is a serious difference between them: Their prices! Compared to the $250,000 price of the Tesla Roadster, approximately 2 million euros are requested for the Rimac Nevera. And the first deliveries have started. So much so that Rimac, which comes from a country like Croatia that is not known for automobiles, is now in a position to decide what Bugatti’s future models will be like, together with the VW Group.

Rimac, which has received millions of dollars of investment from companies such as Porsche, Hyundai, Kia and Infinum, has made an agreement with BMW’s electric car department “i”, with the last statement in 2024, and will have a say in the R&D of the electric models that the German brand will put on sale in the near future. is happening.

Going back to Rimac Nevera; It broke speed records with its model ready for mass production in May 2023. Breaking 23 different speed records in 24 hours, Rimac Nevera completed the 0-100 km/h acceleration in 1.81 seconds and the 0-400 km/h acceleration in 21.31 seconds. Nevera was not satisfied with this record and broke another unthinkable record in November 2023: The record for the fastest car that can go in reverse. The 1,914 horsepower Rimac Nevera broke a record that almost no one had thought of by reaching a speed of approximately 275 km/h in reverse. The previous record in this field was attempted 21 years ago with the Caterham 7 Fireblade and was measured at approximately 165 km/h. By the way, we would like to remind you that the maximum speed of Rimac Nevera is 412 km/h!

In 2017, a Japanese automobile company that no one had ever heard of before, Aspark, introduced its model called Owl, meaning “Owl”. Aspark Owl, which suddenly became a hot topic with its 1.9-second 0-100 km/h acceleration attempt in a parking lot in 2018, completed its developments quietly, although not as popularly as Tesla or Rimac, and was first seen on the streets of Monaco in 2023 with its near-mass production version. The 2,012 horsepower Aspark Owl reduced the 0-100 km/h acceleration to 1.72 seconds and was made capable of offering an electric range of 400 km. The price of Aspark Owl, which is announced to be produced in only 50 units, is over 4 million dollars.

Pininfarina, one of the world’s most famous design houses, introduced its new electric car called Battista in 2019. The 1,900 horsepower electric hyper sports car, which is expected to hit the roads by 2024, will accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in under 2 seconds. It is planned to produce 150 Pininfarina Battistas, each of which will cost 2 million euros. The name of the vehicle comes from the founder of the brand, Battista Farina. Battista Farina received the nickname “Pinin”, meaning “Little Brother”, in the Piedmontese dialect prevalent in the Northern Italy region, both because he was the 10th of 11 siblings in his family and because he was 1.5 meters tall. For this reason, the design and production company he founded was named “Pininfarina”. The first real car of “Automobili Pininfarina”, which was established in 2018 with investments mainly from Indian Mahindra, was named after Battista.

Dendrobium D1: Singaporean Brit

Due to the appropriate production techniques of battery electric cars, we started to hear frequently about brands we had never heard of before. One of them is Dendrobium. The Dendrobium D1, which was exhibited in front of more than 300,000 people at the 2019 Le Mans race, would have a price tag of £1.2 million. We use the past tense because Dendrobium D1, which is expected to hit the roads in 2022 and was introduced with the partnership of leading British executives of the motorsports world and Singaporean investors, has still not stepped on the asphalt as of 2024. With almost all communication channels outdated, Dendrobium seems like it will never go further than a dream, like many electric hyper sports initiatives. If it had been realized, it would have been expected to complete the 0-100 km/h acceleration in 2.7 seconds with its weight of 1750 kg.

Lotus Evija: Let it be!

Lotus, looking for a way to return to its glorious past in electrical systems, is finally trying to reach the light at the end of the tunnel with Evija. The reason for our slightly pessimistic description of Evija, codenamed Type 130; The hyper sports car, which was introduced in 2019, will be produced in the first phase in 2020, but only the first 8 units will be in production in 2022 and deliveries have not yet been made by the end of 2023. It was stated that Lotus Evija, with a total of 2,011 horsepower and 503 horsepower electric motors at each wheel, will accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in under 3 seconds.

The $2.5 million Lotus Evija, which has a production plan of only 130 units, has been completely sold. However, if the vehicles cannot be delivered, dark days may await Lotus once again. This may affect the decisions of Chinese Geely, which holds 51 percent of the brand. However, apart from Evija, Lotus continues to work on the production of an electric SUV called Eletre and a sporty sedan called Emeya, and perhaps the real success can come from these models!

Fisker Ronin: Such a car does not exist yet!

Fisker, which started with good intentions but wanted to find its way out after natural disasters and financial impasses by focusing on model diversity, has produced a 2+2-seater electric vehicle called Ronin, in addition to the SUV Ocean, whose mass production has only started in 2023, and the Pear and pickup truck Alaska models, which are expected to hit the roads in the near future. Fisker Ronin, which is expected to offer a total of 1,000 horsepower from its 3 electric motors, wants to fill a niche gap that does not currently exist in the automotive world, thanks to its foldable metal roof. This is the all-electric GT segment. Fisker Ronin, whose sales price is targeted at $ 385,000, is planned to hit the roads around 2026.
