Electric cars are becoming a popular option in 2021, but that doesn’t mean that you should sacrifice style and speed when purchasing one. Many of the top car brands are releasing their own high-performance electric cars that compare closely to their petrol counterparts. Specialist performance car insurance is not only available but also recommended for these cars. We have outlined a few popular options in the electric and hybrid high-performance car market, proving they don’t sacrifice on power just because they are plug-in.
As far as high-performance electric cars go, the Porsche Taycan is one of the best. It’s the manufacturer’s first completely electric car and can hit a top speed of 161mph. The Taycan has that iconic Porsche look, making it a desirable option if you are looking for an electric sports car. When looking at this car, keep in mind that you will need specialist performance car insurance, so that you can enjoy your Porsche without worrying if you are covered or not.
If you are after an understated high-performance electric car then the Tesla Model S may be an option. Tesla is one of the most popular options for electric vehicles, so this may not feel like a supercar, however, it can still do 0-60mph in 2.4 seconds on Tesla’s ‘Ludicrous Mode’. This is a great option for taking to the roads day-to-day.
For a hybrid alternative to the supercar, the Honda NSX is a fast and fun option. The NSX has four-wheel drive thanks to the two electric motors on the front wheels and the third on the rear axle, making the handling easy and smooth. With a top speed of 191mph, you will want to consider performance car insurance. At Prestige we can tailor your policy to fit the needs of you and your supercar, making the electric car experience as smooth as possible.
The most comfortable of the electric high-performance cars, the Audi e-Tron has the power of the Porsche but with the luxury and space that you would expect from a GT car. This car can be best compared to the Porsche Taycan and Tesla Model S, sharing a similar chassis style to both. Its top speed is slightly lower than that of the Porsche, at only 155mph. For a high-performance electric car, the Audi is worth considering for long drives. We can also help you with your performance car insurance on this vehicle, we give specific advice on Audi Insurance.
The SF90 Stradale is everything you expect from a Ferrari, it can do 0-62mph in just 2.5 seconds and holds the most powerful V8 engine in the brand’s history. What you don’t expect is that it’s a plug-in hybrid. As well as that large engine, the Ferrari SF90 has three electric motors and an 8kWh battery, meaning that this car is best on the race track, not on the road. As with all Ferraris, this car benefits from specialist performance car insurance. Give us a call to get a flexible and reliable policy for your car.
