Aspark Owl fastest electric cars in the world

With the automobile industry moving away from gas-powered cars, we live in a world where the fastest-accelerating cars in the world are mostly electric.

Old-fashioned petrolheads may think switching from gas to electric could be a big downside.

However, many positive things have come out of this transition.

So here are some of the world’s fastest electric cars.

Fastest electric cars in the world

Some of the following cars may not be as recognizable as the Lamborghini Aventador.

But they have rightfully made their mark as the fastest electric cars in the world. And we might see more like them in the future.

Aspark Owl

You might not have heard about the Aspark Owl, but it is one of the fastest electric cars in the world.

When it came out in 2020, the Japanese automaker claimed it was the fastest-accelerating car in the world.

And they proved it by breaking several Guinness World Records.

Only two cars have beaten its record, while one is a race car (McMurtry Spéirling), and the other requires some special tuning (Dodge Challenger Demon 170).

It is safe to say the Aspark Owl is the fastest production car, reaching a 0-60 mph speed in 1.72 seconds.

Electric cars still have to catch up to the top speeds of their petrol-powered counterparts, but the Aspark Owl still has an impressive top speed of 257 mph.

Rimac Nevera

The Rimac Nevera stands toe to toe with the Aspark Owl as the fastest electric car in the world.

However, the electric supercar has a slightly higher top speed of 258 mph.

The Nevera features four electric motors producing 1914hp, allowing for 0-60 mph speed in 1.74 seconds.

With an enormous 120kWh battery, Rimac claims the Nevera has a range of 489 km.

Pininfarina Battista

The Pininfarina Battista is a true electric hypercar reaching 0-60 mph speed in 1.79 seconds.

But speed is not all that matters in a vehicle as the Battista is a very stylish modern supercar.

Pininfarina has also teamed up with DC to make a Batman-inspired version of the Battista.

The four permanent-magnet synchronous motors belts out 1,900 horsepower with a 218-mph top speed.

Upcoming fastest electric cars

The automobile industry still has a lot to offer to those who feel a need for speed.

In the near future, we might see some of the long-standing speed records being broken by the latest in automobile engineering.

So here are some of the upcoming fastest electric cars, you should keep an eye on.

Tesla Roadster 2.0

Elon Musk’s Tesla entered the electric car scene in 2008 with the Roadster.

And now the automaker is planning to release the next version of the EV car and its specs are simply jaw-dropping.

The Tesla Roadster 2.0 can sprint to 60 mph in just 1.89 seconds.

As if that wasn’t enough, Elon Musk has confirmed that it will come with a SpaceX option package that includes 10 rocket thrusters around the car.

It will allow the car to reach 0-60 mph in just 1.1 seconds.

Other than the Roadster, there are other electric cars making their way into the market in the future. These include the Deus Vayanne and several other Chinese EV cars.

It seems the future of the automobile industry is brighter than ever.
