There is a new market emerging in the automotive industry and a lot of people don't want to be left behind for various reasons. Electric Vehicles are gaining momentum in sales due to people being vested in being environmentally friendly, while others are tired of the constant increase in petrol prices. Companies are always looking for better technology to incorporate into their electric cars and below are 3 companies that might have found the formula for being extremely fast and yet conservative.
- Rimac Nevera
- BMW i4 M50
- Aston Martin DB11 EV

If you thought that Bugatti produces the fastest accelerating production car in the world, then you better think again. Rimac is an electric car company that uses technology that exceeds comprehension, the image above is their latest rendering and it has a maximum power output of 1914HP at 2360Nm of torque. To translate these performance figures, the Rimac Nevera can launch from 0-100km/h in just 1.97seconds, from 0-300km/h in just 9.3 seconds and it will reach a maximum speed of 412km/h. The car will be handcrafted to give the consumer the best possible performance figures and a high level of efficiency.
BMW i40 M50

A lot of people assume that since the BMW M4 is the flagship of the BMW 4 series range it is the fastest, although this might have been true a couple of years ago, it is now about to change. The image above displays the BMW i4 M50, which is the electric version of the 4 series, it produces a power output of 400kW, compared to the mere 352kW in the BMW M4. Since BMW got into the electric car segment with the BMW i8 back in 2014 it seems like they have been working endlessly to improve their presence in the Electric Vehicle segment. This particular vehicle has CO2 emissions of 0g/km. BMW is going full electrification on most of their existing ranges and it will be interesting to find out what they will be releasing after this performance saloon.
ASTON MARTIN DB11 EV

Aston Martin is one of the few companies that literally have no presence in the Electric Vehicle market, however that is all about to change. Aston intended on introducing it's first electric car back in 2019, however due to some financial issues they ended up holding back on the project. A new dawn has arrived and Mercedes Benz has acquired a 20% stake of Aston Martin and it is proving to be fruitful. This year Aston Martin will release it's first hyper car, which will be a hybrid vehicle, meaning that the infrastructure for an electric vehicle has been established. The first fully electric Aston Martin will be the Aston Martin DB11 EV.
What is your take on electric vehicles, will they stand against the test of time or is it just a seasonal trend in the automotive industry?
