The average electric car does 60 miles on a single charge with a top speed of 40mph. However, the electric Telsa can do 0 to 60 mph in under four seconds, it’s average top speed is 125mph and it’s range is 220 miles. The world’s fastest electric car is the Shelby Supercars Aero EV and it can go from 0-60 mph in about 2.5 seconds and its top speed is 208 mph.
Car manufacturers have purposefully kept the top speed of electric cars low to fool people into thinking that electric cars are sluggish. This is the case for city electric cars and golf carts that are not highway legal. However, it is very easy to get an electric car that goes legal freeway speed. People have been doing it for years without the help of large auto manufacturing companies by converting their own vehicles. However, most home converters are not interested in getting speeding tickets, so they don’t test their cars at full speed. My dad has a freeway legal home-converted electric car, and I recently spoke with someone who owns another one that can go at least 80, but he did not push it any farther than that because he did not want to get a speeding ticket.
