Best electric sports cars: The most exciting electron-powered speed machines

Looking for a bit more bite in your battery-powered car? Then check out our top picks for best electric sports cars money can buy.
Electric cars have a tendency to polarize opinions for many reasons, but one of the main gripes gearheads have is that they can just be plain dreadful to look at. Cars like the Nissan Leaf and Mitsubishi i might put in efforts worthy of champions when it comes to fuel economy, but they’re not even title contenders when it comes to style and performance. That’s why we’ve come up with our list of the best and most exciting electric sports cars out now or on the horizon. For those looking for a bit more bite in their battery-powered vehicles, any of the following easily warrant a place in your fantasy garage.
Lighting GT

Built by Britain’s the Lighting Car Company, the Lighting GT is yet another battery-powered electric supercar looking to battle it out with the likes of electric sport car makers Fisker Automotive and Tesla Motors. Visually, the Lighting GT is striking in a much more conventional manner than some of its counterparts and forgoes any real obvious electric styling cues one might typically find on a car of its kind.
Of course breaking successfully into the elite supercar scene (and staying there) is difficult enough for even the sportiest and finely crafted gasoline chuggers, let alone battery-powered models. But LCC believes that the Lighting GT will be able to deliver the goods thanks to the car’s advanced Lithium Titanate battery, 150 mile range (225 with optional range extender pack), and claimed recharge time of 10 minutes. Rounding out the Lighting GT’s performance specs is a 300kW (400hp) twin motor powertrain that provides the GT with an estimated 0-60 time of just under 5 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 125 mph.
For those interested in purchasing the Lighting GT it remains in development, but LCC is taking pre-order sign ups on its website.
