5 Electric Cars I'd Swipe Right On Any Day

"Tesla Model S- extremely powerful, can outrun an Aventador" this is totally a left.

EVs have advanced a lot in the last decade or so and they show potential to go a lot further in the decade that lies ahead. I mean, with EVs, you don't have to be rich to leave an AMG in the dust. Electric cars are achieving acceleration speeds, ranges, and other advances never before seen. Some of the sports cars, both those already on the market and those soon to be on the market, would have been hard to believe possible just 10 years ago. But such is the pace of development in the EV world.

While I know that some petrolheads and EVs aren't exactly Hopscotch buddies, at the end of the day, you've gotta accept the fact that these silent machines are gonna be the most prominent on roads 15 years from now. Here are my five picks:

Rimac C_Two

No surprise there, the Rimac is a great car that took the world by storm. The Croatian car manufacturer has only been in the motoring scene since 2009, and they're making HUGE waves already. Just because they're new doesn't mean they haven't worked on the next great all-electric hypercar. Power alone is exponential for even a supercar. The C_Two boasts an output of 1,914-hp, which trumps even a Bugatti Chiron. It can go from zero to 60mph in 1.85-seconds. Unlike other EVs, it doesn't drop in acceleration once it reaches higher speeds. Its two-speed gearboxes at the rear allow it to maximize its power and reach a top speed of 258 mph. Just...simply insane.

Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo

In the name Porsche Taycan 4 Cross Turismo, “Cross Turismo” translates from Marketingese to “Sport Wagon”. It may have a long roof, but there is nothing SUV about it. Its profile is long and low and in true wagon fashion, it is identical to the Taycan sedan from the B-pillar, forward. It's got everything you'd look for in a car (except the engine, of course)- the looks, the practicality, the performance, luxury and did I mention looks? That too. It looks abso-positively graceful.

Lucid Air

It's better than the Model S. In every way. Performance? Check. Range? Check. Looks? Double-check. Something-that-isnt-a-Tesla? Check. What more reason do you need? Ok, yes, it's expensive and you'd rather the M5 for that price but remember, this article is EV only. Otherwise, I'd take the M5 too.

Polestar 2

Fresh off the back of the original Polestar concept, the company has hit back with the Polestar 2 - the tricky second album. For a company so young, its a bold move, one intended to shake up the electric car industry. And that's why it's arguably the best EV on sale as of now- to have such mighty ambitions as to overtake the leading manufacturer in a segment that they might as well have perfected- that's a big task and in my mind, the 2 has already done it and more. Plus, it's stunning and fast.

Apex AP-O

For those of you who play Asphalt 9, you might recognise this interesting piece of electric art. For those not, well, this is the Apex AP-O. It was first announced in 2020 by Apex Motors- a British/Hong Kong (Cantonese?) company. It can soar to top speeds as much as 190mph from a 650hp electric motor. It also has a curb weight of only 1200kg which makes it light as a feather and therefore, I assume, VERY fun to drive.

  • All 5 of those are brilliant vehicles. If I’m picking one, the Polestar would easily be my choice. The design is so clean, and effortlessly cool, in an unusual Swedish way. The pricing is improving and so is range. All we really need is sustainable energy powered chargers to come along and it should improve. EV as a daily, ICE for the fun weekend ride.

    • Yes, Polestar definitely takes it's understated design influence from Volvo. Classy looking car. And you're right, all 5 are brilliant.

      I think the Audi e-tron GT could easily be on this list, too. And to be honest so do some of the P100D...

  • I'd love an EV as a city car and the Honda E does that really well. Shame about the price though.

  • Banks of batteries make them heavy and more unwieldy than their fossil fuel powered partners and they all lack the visceral emotive experience that petrol heads yearn for .....

    • I’m going to send almost the same message I sent the last person:

      Gotta get past the initial turn-offs. They are the future and it is an awesome future! Have you actually driven one?! They are a lot of fun! Been test driving Tesla’s and they...

    • Well, I'm sure the Rimac provides a more visceral driving experience than a Mclaren. But again, I can't say anything about driving experiences as I haven't driven a single car- electric or otherwise.
