3 Electric Cars That Are Faster Than a Tesla Model S Plaid (and 2 That Aren’t)

When it comes to electric cars, the Tesla Model S Plaid is ahead in terms of performance. A 0-60 mph time of less than 2 seconds and a top speed of 200 mph is hard to argue with. However, those performance numbers don’t top the fastest electric car list. Believe it or not, iSeeCars found that the Model S Plaid has three EVs that look slow on paper, and two that don’t.

If you thought the car that could go faster than the Tesla Model S Plaid must be a supercar, you’re right. One of his top three cars on iSeeCars’ “Fastest Electric Cars” list is the Pininfarina Battista, a supercar worth $2.2 million. Accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 1.8 seconds. This is slightly faster than his 1.9 seconds for the Model S Plaid.
