Tesla’s new Model S Plaid is fast. It might look like a regular sedan, but it goes 0 to 60 mph in under two seconds.
Is there a faster electric vehicle out there? Let’s find out. Here are the speediest EVs that are actually available, ranked by how fast they go from full stop to 60 mph.
Under 5 seconds
Jaguar I-Pace: 4.5 seconds
This is Jaguar’s first electric car. It’s a compact SUV, so it’s a bit bigger than some of the speedier EVs on this list. But it can still move for its size.
Polestar 2: 4.45 seconds
Polestar’s first all-electric sedan is also one of the first cars from Volvo’s spinoff performance brand.
It doesn’t look or feel like as much of a sports car as Polestar’s first car, the aptly named Polestar 1, which is a plug-in hybrid.

Porsche Taycan 4S: 3.8 seconds
Porche’s first foray into electric vehicles is its robust line of Taycan models. The 4S starts at $103,000. There’s also the standard Taycan and two more expensive, high-performance versions.
Tesla Model X Performance: 3.8 seconds
The Model X may look like an SUV but it has some racing chops. The performance version starts at just under $90,000.
Tesla Model Y Performance: 3.6 seconds
Tesla’s newest car is its second SUV. The dual-motor performance version can really move.
Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition: 3.5 seconds
Ford redesigned the classic Mustang as an all-electric SUV. The Performance Edition can go toe-to-toe with the Tesla Model Y.
Audi RS e-tron GT: 3.1 seconds
While Audi’s original e-tron wasn’t the fastest EV, a sportier performance version was announced earlier this year.
Tesla Model 3 Performance: 3.1 seconds
Another Tesla makes the list. This time its Tesla’s most affordable sedan.
Porsche Taycan Turbo: 3 seconds
Here’s another Taycan, this one with the “turbo” moniker — even though it doesn’t have an internal combustion engine.
Under 3 seconds
Tesla Model X Plaid: 2.6 seconds
The Plaid version won’t be out until 2022, but once it’s here, it’ll be a full second faster than the original version.
Tesla Model S Performance: 2.4 seconds
It may not be the new Plaid version, but the original Model S can keep up on the race track.
Porsche Taycan Turbo S: 2.4 seconds
The Taycan Turbo S and Tesla’s Model S Performance version stack up pretty closely on the race course — just don’t tell Tesla stans.
Under 2 seconds
Tesla Model S Plaid: 1.99 seconds
You’ll need to shell out nearly $130,000 to go plaid.
The new Tesla Model S Plaid is clearly the fastest production EV in the world. But there are some very fast (and expensive) electric hypercars out there, too.
Rimac Nevera: 1.85 seconds
This $2.44 million speed demon from Croatia does 0 to 60 mph in 1.85 seconds. While only 150 of the electric cars will be made, there’s no set delivery time.
NIO EP9: 2.7 seconds
Only six of these cars have been sold, for more than $2.5 million each. China-based NIO plans to only make 10 more of the cars for a total of 16.
Lotus Evija: < 3 seconds
Only 130 of the British sports cars will be made, each being sold for a hefty $2.1 million. The hypercar reaches 186 mph in 8.6 seconds.
