The 5 coolest electric vehicles that we want to buy right now

From a $1.8 million supercar to a blimp-yacht hybrid, these are the coolest EVs out there.

Going electric is the future so scroll through our list to see what your daily ride could look like.

5. Hispano Suiza Carmen Boulogne

Hispano Suiza showed off this 100 percent electric beast, the Carmen Boulogne, in 2020.

Prices for the supercar start from €1.65 million (US$1.8 million) plus taxes.

And in March, Hispano Suiza delivered the first one to car collector and entrepreneur Michael Fux in the US.

The Carmen Boulogne makes 1,114HP with its four electric engines.

Mr Fux’s customized supercar was painted in “Ocean Rose Song”, which takes its purple color from his favorite Ocean Song rose.

He actually sent a rose from Miami so Hispano Suiza’s design team in Barcelona could match the color.

The Carmen Boulogne can do 0-100km/h (0-62mph) in under 2.6 seconds, with a top speed of 290km/h (180mph).


4. E1 RaceBird powerboat

Hitting speeds of up to 50 knots (93km/h or 58mph), the RaceBird was made for foil-to-foil racing.

It’s seven meters in length and weighs 800kg (1763lbs).

The powerboat glides above the water’s surface, reducing drag and maximizing energy efficiency.

It was created by SeaBird Technologies founder Sophi Horne and Brunello Acampora, who is the CEO and founder of Victory Marine.

The RaceBird is in the production phase.

3. Leo Coupe eVTOL

I wouldn’t blame you if you thought this eVTOL was a luxury car.

But this is actually the Leo Coupe – a flying jet car that is powered by a fully electric propulsion system.

The $300,000 eVTOL seats three adults including the pilot.

At three meters (10 feet) by six meters (20 feet), it can fit easily in most two-car garages for personal use.

The Leo Coupe has a flight speed of 403km/h (250 mph) and can fly for more than an hour from a single charge.

2. Harley Davidson LiveWire motorbikes

These are the first electric Harley Davidsons, with the LiveWire ONE able to go 0-96km/h (0-60mph) in three seconds.

And the battery can go from 0-80 percent on fast charge in a speedy 40 minutes.

From $22,799, the LiveWire ONE has a range of 235 kilometers (146 miles) and makes 100HP.

The limited-edition run of LiveWire’s other motorbike, the Del Mar S2, reportedly sold out in less than 20 minutes.

Only 100 will be made and they are built to order.

1. AirYacht

This is taking yachting to a whole new level, literally to the skies.

The AirYacht concept has a 60-meter (197-foot) superyacht attached to a monster 200-meter (656-feet) airship (a blimp), so you can get the best of both worlds in your luxury life.

The helium-filled airship floats in the sky with the yacht, which can have up to 12 passengers in it, attached underneath.

When sick of the skies, the owner can then unhook the vessel from the airship and use it as a regular yacht in the water.

The AirYacht will initially run as a hybrid, with hopes it will eventually be electric or hydrogen-powered, according to Euronews.

“The airship is hybrid. There is a generator to create electricity but all the propellers are with an electric motor,” AirYacht co-founder Mathieu Ozanne said.

Orders are now open with four units available with deliveries expected in 2028 and 2027.

The price is a mystery, but we imagine you if you need to ask the price you cannot afford it.
