Any of the ten ultra-fast electric vehicles featured in the most recent episode of MotorTrend’s ‘Head2Head’ show would be insane to pit against one another.
When we were kids, we spent a lot of time reading car magazines, right? The glossy pages with pictures of sweet rides and descriptions written in terms we barely understood at the time bring back a flood of fond memories. However, we no longer need to rely solely on magazines to become familiar with cutting-edge technology. The internet has made it possible to have virtually any resource at our disposal at any time. But in all honesty, even this fails to excite us automobile enthusiasts any longer. That’s why it makes sense for media companies to produce shows for streaming and OTT services that let us sit in the driver’s seat. The most recent season of Head2Head on MotorTrend is one such program. The show features a head-to-head competition between two of the most desirable automobiles available. In each episode, two vehicles compete against one another in a series of races and other tests. Both vehicles’ strengths and weaknesses are exposed during these tests, giving onlookers a first-hand look at the speed and efficiency of these machines. Given the global shift toward electric vehicles, we can’t help but wonder which electric supercars, sports cars, and hypercars the show should highlight instead of the gas-guzzlers that dominate most episodes. Listed below are ten electric and hybrid cars that we think would make great showpieces.
The Rimac Nevera is a stunning electric hypercar that can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in about 1.74 seconds and features 1,914 horsepower (more than an F1 car). The Nevera’s massive 120 kWh battery is powered by four electric motors. It’s one of the fastest cars out there, with a top speed of 258 miles per hour. Because of its long range and quick charging time (0-80 percent in 19 minutes using a 500 kW DC), this car can be used in everyday situations.
The Rimac Nevera’s all-wheel-drive system with torque vectoring is one of its most impressive features, allowing for exceptional handling and speed. It also features a novel active aerodynamics system that dynamically adjusts for peak efficiency under any driving condition, whether cruising at top speed or negotiating tight turns. The Rimac Nevera, at $2.2 million, is the holy grail of automobiles and the pinnacle of modern automotive engineering.
The Italian electric hypercar Estrema Fulminea is deserving of a live performance demonstration. Fulminea’s superior performance and eye-catching styling make it a formidable rival to any automobile. The Italian hypercar is incredibly powerful, with four electric motors producing a combined 2,040 horsepower. Estrema hasn’t put much emphasis on the Fulminea’s 0-60 MPH speed, but the superfast EV can go from zero to two hundred miles per hour in under ten seconds. Supposedly, it can reach speeds of up to 217 mph.
The Fulminea is not only fast, but also very maneuverable thanks to its cutting-edge aerodynamic design and lightweight construction. The sleek bodywork of this car was created with both aesthetics and performance in mind. The driver will have access to state-of-the-art gadgetry in the cockpit. The Head2Head audience would enjoy a comprehensive examination of this futuristic EV.
If you’re looking for a stunning electric vehicle, look no further than the Pininfarina Battista. Battista, the first vehicle to bear the company’s name, was in development for three years before it was released to the public in the previous year. This vehicle has a phenomenal power output of 1,900 horsepower and can accelerate from zero to sixty miles per hour in only 1.79 seconds. Battista Farina, the man responsible for founding the Pininfarina design house in 1930, is honored with the naming of this Italian flagship vehicle. The maximum range of its single charge is 300 miles, and its top speed is over 217 miles per hour.
Although it only superficially resembles a Ferrari, the exterior design screams elegance and sophistication with its smooth lines and aerodynamic features. But that’s to be expected, seeing as how it was built by the same design studio responsible for conceiving so many Ferraris. Almost no one can afford the astronomical price tag of $2.2 million.
There is no doubt that the Tesla Cybertruck is one of the most anticipated electric vehicles to be released in recent years. The fact that it contains so many hidden meanings makes it perfect for a show like “Head2Head.” The Cybertruck stands out from the crowd thanks in large part to its futuristic appearance. Armor-plated glass windows and an exterior frame constructed from super-tough 30X cold-rolled stainless steel make this thing practically indestructible.
Tesla asserts that its all-electric drivetrain provides superior speed and range. It’s quicker than a lot of current sports cars because it can go from zero to sixty miles per hour in just 2.9 seconds. This truck provides unparalleled long-distance convenience with a range of up to 500 miles on a single charge.
Porsche Taycan Turbo S
The Porsche Taycan Turbo S is an exceptional piece of machinery. The aggressive acceleration and “close to the ground driving position” of this electric car are worthy complements to its sleek and futuristic appearance. The Taycan Turbo S is a stunning sports car, but its good looks are only the beginning.
The Taycan Turbo S can compete with some of the quickest gas-guzzling sports cars on the market today thanks to its maximum output of 750 horses and acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.6 seconds. The Taycan Turbo S has been applauded for its responsive and dynamic driving experience, which is difficult to find in other electric vehicles.
GMC Hummer EV SUV
The GMC Hummer EV SUV is a revolutionary step forward for the electric vehicle industry. An 830-horsepower motor and a range of more than 314 miles on a single charge are just two of the impressive features of this monster truck. The Hummer EV isn’t just impressive in terms of speed and range, though. It also has high-tech features like Super Cruise that make driving hands-free on certain highways possible. In addition, there are modes like CrabWalk and Extract that make it easy to walk over rough terrain.
It’s great for long trips and adventures because it can travel up to 350 miles on a single charge. The Hummer EV heralds a new era of efficient and environmentally friendly electric vehicles. Soon, we can’t wait to see it on this new series and see its power in action!
