Just a couple of years ago all of the top speed and acceleration competitions were mostly conducted between gasoline guzzling four-wheelers, while electric cars, maybe with the exception of Teslas, were laughed at for their lack of power and slow speeds.
But it does seem the days of internal combustion domination are coming to an end, since all-electric autos are confidently entering the top speed and acceleration competition.
Today we will review top 10 of the fastest electric cars that soon will be able to compete and probably beat internal combustion hypercars!
