And they’re fast

Cars like the Tesla Model S offer acceleration that’ll shame many supercars. In fact, the P100D version can go from 0-62mph in just 2.7 seconds – that’s superbike levels of performance.

From 0-30mph, a Volkswagen e-Golf can out-accelerate the Golf GTI hot hatchback, and even cars like the Nissan Leaf and Renault ZOE can shock passengers with the instant shove from their electric motors.
