When it comes to electric sedans, people generally think about range, comfort, luxury, and maybe cargo space. Electric sedans, however, just like ICE-powered sedans, can also be high-performance vehicles. With more than 1,000 horsepower available, most of these sedans deliver performance figures that are sometimes better than some of the best supercars out there. For example, not one, but two electric sedans go from 0 to 60 mph in under two seconds, and many more can easily take on the most powerful supercars from Ferrari and Lamborghini. Here’s a list of the top 10 fastest electric sedans currently available, and you will be surprised to find out that all of them need less than 3.5 seconds to go from 0 to 60 mph!

You wouldn’t expect a model like the Tesla Model 3 to be listed as a fast electric sedan, but it is. We’re not talking about the base trim but, instead, the more powerful Model 3 Performance. It comes with a dual-motor all-wheel drive setup that delivers a combined 506 horsepower and 487 pound-feet of torque. This may not sound like as much as the other electric sedans listed here, but since the Model 3 is a compact sedan, it is a little bit lighter, which helps in terms of performance. It also has a carbon fiber spoiler that improves stability at high speeds and allows the Model 3 Performance to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in as little as 3.1 seconds, while the top speed goes up to 162 mph. If these numbers convinced you, the Model 3 Performance is also one of the cheapest fastest electric sedans out there with a starting price of $53,990.

7 2023 Mercedes-AMG EQS: 0-60 mph - 3.0 seconds

Mercedes-Benz EQS

Launched in 2021, the Mercedes-AMG EQS is the perfect proof that electric sedans can also be fast and fun to drive. The AMG EQS is powered by two electric motors, one placed on the front axle and one on the rear, that deliver a combined 658 horsepower and 700 pound-feet of torque. With the optional AMG Dynamic Plus package and the Race Start mode activated Power will be boosted to 751 horsepower and 752 pound-feet. With a total weight of 5,853 pounds, the AMG EQS needs 3.8 seconds to go from 0 to 60 mph and can hit a top speed of 136 mph. In its best configuration, with the Dynamic Plus package, the sprint time goes down to 3.4 seconds and the top speed up to 155 mph. However, most of the test drives revealed that the Mercedes-AMG EQS does the 0 to 60 mph sprint in only 3.0 seconds. These are, of course, great performance figures for an electric sedan if you are willing to pay $147,550 for it.

Almost every model in Audi’s lineup is offered in the RS (RennSport) avatar, and the e-tron GT is no different. Like all other Audi RS models, the RS e-tron GT delivers a lot more performance, too. The RS e-tron GT is powered by dual synchronous front and rear electric motors that deliver a total of 590 horsepower or 637 horsepower when the Launch Control is activated. With the Launch Control on, the 5,284-pound electric sedan needs only 3.0 seconds to sprint from 0 to 60 mph and can hit a top speed of 155 mph. These all will be great numbers for an electric sedan, except that the RS e-tron GT only has a range of 293 miles - making it one of the least efficient in its segment. At $143,900, the Audi RS e-tron GT is also not cheap.

Porsche's first attempt at the EV market, the Taycan, needs no presentation. It is not only Porsche's first EV, but also the company's proof that not only sports cars can be fast. In its most powerful version, the Taycan Turbo S, the electric sedan is powered by two exceptionally efficient electric motors, one on the front axle and one on the rear axle that delivers up to 750 horsepower and 774 pound-feet of torque with the Launch Control activated. In this configuration, the Taycan Turbo S goes from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.6 seconds – on par with the company’s sport-car icon, the 911 Turbo S. However, during one of their drives, the folks over at CarAndDriver were able to do the 60-mph sprint in only 2.4 seconds. Just like any other Porsche out there, the Taycan Turbo S is not cheap: its price starts from $187,400.

Lucid Motors started to deliver the Air in late 2021, and with more than half the models delivering more than 1,000 horsepower, it is no wonder it has supremacy when it comes to the fastest sedans out there. Most of us were expecting the Air to dominate the market in terms of power, range, and charging speed, but it turns out it is also a very fast sedan. The Air Dream Edition Performance is powered by a dual-motor setup that delivers "only" 1,111 horsepower and 1,025 pound-feet of torque. Just like the Air Sapphire, it can hit a top speed of 200 mph, but Lucid opted to limit that to 168 mph. As for the 0 to 60 mph sprint time, the new Air Dream Edition Performance needs only 2.4 seconds - which makes it just as fast as the Ferrari LaFerrari. All this for a price of $169,000.

It hits 100 mph in just 3.87 seconds and can hit a top speed of 205 mph. The Air Sapphire is priced at $249,000 and is loaded with lots of cool standard features, including carbon ceramic brakes, stiffer front and rear springs, traction control, stability control, and electric power steering.
