As its clear now that electric cars and hybrid cars are the next BIG thing in the automotive industry, almost all car manufacturers are working upon such concepts. As a result it’s getting better everyday and now manufacturers are aiming to bring the best of both the worlds from the same electric drive train , that is, great performance as well as great overall driveable range (gasoline plus electric). Which means buying Eco-Friendly yet Fun to Drive Cars is no dream now. Some such cars are mentioned here which will change your perspective towards green cars.
BMW i8 (the most desirable of all the Plugin HYBRID cars)
The best example for such a car is the BMW i8 . The BMW i8 has Carbon Emission rating of just 49 g/km so that’s why we call it Eco friendly. On the other hand it can go from 0-60 mph in just 4.4 seconds and has a top speed of 155 mph, now those are supercar numbers. And it got even more desirable as the company has announced that they will launch a Roadster version of the car in 2016. And that is why it is a great example of an Eco-Friendly yet Fun to Drive Cars.
Tesla Model S p85d
Another car we have in the list is the Tesla Model S p85d (the best-seller of all-electric performance luxury sedan cars). The 691 horses pull this 4-wheel drive Tesla from 0-60 mph in just 3.2 seconds and take it to a top speed of 155 mph. And despite weighing 4936 pounds, this car handles like a breeze. The car’s performance can be judged by the fact that it even has an INSANE mode of driving. And after all this, it still has a range of about 220 miles (even if you drive it “Insanely”) in a single charge, it’s still better than most of the other electric vehicles.
Porsche Mission E Concept
Another car in the list is the Porsche Mission E concept. Since when Porsche has confirmed that the Mission E will go into production it is making a lot of buzz. With power output of around 600Hp and range of about 230 miles in a single charge it sounds very promising. As this car will come from the house of Porsche (no doubts how well it would be to drive) and it will also have four seats and an actual usable range.
Wait for the next post to see the complete list of all such cars.
