5 Best Electric Supercars in 2023

  • The top electrified supercars tend to have speeds of over 200 mph.
  • Electric speed demons know no borders: These cars are from all over the world.
  • Most electric supercars are built in supremely limited amounts, usually topping out at just 150 units.

The electric car market has come a long way in the last decade, from being a little niche market to now offering an entire range of electric vehicles – including some truly thrilling electric supercars. Sure, some concepts have failed over the years. But others have managed to weather the storm and created something truly special. With the electric revolution sweeping through the supercar segment, we figured we’d list some of our top EV supercars, including some of the absolute fastest cars around.


Pininfarina Battista

• 1,900 horsepower
• 222 mph top speed

Pininfarina, the famous Italian design house, entered the electric supercar market with the Battista, which starts our list off with a face-ripping 1,900 horsepower. Although Pininfarina is more known for designing Ferraris, the Battista relies on a Rimac-supplied electric powertrain, delivering an impressive 1,702 lb-ft of torque. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 1.79 seconds and reach speeds of up to 222 mph. In March 2023, this car set the record for the fastest quarter-mile production car at just 8.55 seconds. Prices started at $2.2 million, making the Battista start this list of top EV supercars that are also upsettingly rare (only 150 were built).

Rimac Nevera

• 1,940 horsepower
• 258 mph top speed

Speaking of Rimac, here we have the Nevera, which was once known by the concept name C Two when it was first developed in Croatia. Sure, the Pininfarina Battista may have the fastest quarter mile, but the Nevera has the fastest top speed on this list, at an astounding 258 mph. It’s powered by four liquid-cooled permanent magnet synchronous e-motors that generate a combined 1,940 horsepower. It can reach 60 mph in just 1.85 seconds, with a top speed of 258 mph. The car has a 120 kWh battery pack that can get up to 342 miles on a single charge. The Nevera also features a “High Downforce” mode that boosts the downforce by 326%. This one was also built with only 150 units in production, and this ultra-high-performance electric supercar cost over $2 million to buy.

While this is the “slowest” car on our list of top EV supercars, it’s still a pretty special car. We’ve talked about Chinese brand NIO a lot here, but this speed demon deserves a special mention. The EP9 is powered by four electric motors that deliver 1,341 horsepower, 4,687 lb-ft of torque, and a top speed of 196 mpg, with the company claiming that the car’s downforce is double that of an F1 car. It has a 2.7-second 0-60 time, and it also managed to get around the Nürburgring Nordschleife in 6 minutes, 45 seconds. If you have over $3 million to burn, it’ll sure be a fun track car for you.

Aspark Owl

• 249 mph top speed

This Japanese-made supercar has taken the EV world by storm with its radical appearance and lightning-fast performance. It’s built on a carbon fiber chassis that weighs a mere 264.5 pounds (giving it a total curb weight of 4,189 lbs), and it’s powered by four permanent magnet synchronous motors that produce a hefty 1,984 horsepower and 1,475 pound-feet of torque. Aspark claims the Owl can go from 0 to 60 mph in a mind-blowing 1.69 seconds. But this speed demon isn’t just about performance, it’s also incredibly light and shockingly durable, with a range of 280 miles. With only 50 units available, each priced at a cool $2.8 million, the Aspark Owl is an exclusive, limited edition hypercar that definitely belongs on a list of top EV supercars.

Lotus Evija

• 2,011 horsepower
• 200+ mph top speed

Sources only say that the Lotus Evjia can hit “200+” mph as a top speed, but that still seems plenty quick — and reportedly, Lotus wanted to beat out the Aspark Owl, so they added more horsepower to top it off at 2,011 ponies. Maintaining the Lotus tradition of making lightweight cars, this one weighs in at just 3,703 lbs thanks to its magnesium wheels and carbon-fiber monocoque frame. It still gets a solid 250 miles of range, and it gets to claim the fame of being the first-ever fully-electric British hypercar. Got $2.1 million sitting around? Then maybe you can somehow get your hands on one of the only 130 units produced.
