Top 5 Coolest Electric Cars In The World

By  | 

Electric cars are becoming quite cool and a fashion symbol but I like them simply because they might save the planet one day, if it’s not too late already. There are many eco-friendly cars out there but I will talk about the cars here I really like.

 

Renovo Motors Coupe

Renovo-Motors-Coupe

Its chassis was provided by the Shelby American brand and inspired by the American sports car that won the 1964 Le Mans. Coupe produces 500 horsepower and 1,000 pound-feet of torque. That means it can do 0 to 60 mph in under 3.4 seconds, making it the fastest rear-wheel-drive production EV. It can also receive a quick charge in 30 minutes and a full charge in just five hours.

 

Morgan EV3

Morgan-EV3-2

The British-made Morgan EV3 is easily recognizable of them all. It’s based upon the Morgan 3 Wheeler that was introduced in 2011. Instead of a two-cylinder gasoline motorcycle engine up front, the EV3 is powered by a 45-kilo-Watt (kW) electric motor that drives the rear wheel. Morgan is estimating the EV3 will be good for a 150-mile driving range.

 

Audi R8 e-tron

Audi-R8-e-tron

Audi R8’s electric motors produce 340 kW that will rocket this Teutonic EV to 62.1 mph from a standstill in 3.9 seconds. It also boasts a 279.6-mile range as well. It’s also because the R8 e-tron has lent its electric powertrain tech to the forthcoming Volkswagen Microbus EV, slated for debut at 2016 CES.

 

Tesla Model X

Tesla Model X

This is the mighty Model X and it comes with Falcon Wing doors. The $142,000 P90D Founder model can do 0 to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds while also returning a 250-mile range. It comes with panoramic windshield, large tablet-like touchscreen in the center console and doors that open as the owner walks up. Tesla also brags that the Model X is the safest SUV ever, with a body so strong that it broke some of the testing equipment. Tesla also included an incredibly robust HVAC system complete with a Bioweapons Defense Mode button.

 

Honda CR-Z prototype

Honda-CR-Z-SH-AWD-prototype

Honda CR-Z hybrid has no gasoline engine onboard. Instead, each wheel is powered by its very own electric motor. With four motors capable of putting out 100% of their torque at zero rpm, this CR-Z prototype is very fast indeed. The CR-Z’s completed the Pikes Peak hillclimb earlier this year and it completed the course in 10:23.829 minutes. That time allowed it to take first in its Exhibition class, coming just a minute shy of the overall winning time at the event.
