The 2020 Electric Sports Cars

Electric Sports Cars are the new trend for the start of 2020…

Electric Cars are the Future: Like it or not.

Electric Cars are nothing new. They’ve been cruising beside us for decades now. However, recently there seems to have been a huge shift in consumer behavior. There’s a new demographic buying cars and money is what decides the next trend in the world we live in. Electric cars were cool and all, save the planet and what not. But now the people want to see how far we can take it. Test the limits of what electric car tech can do. Since Tesla announced the Roadster some time ago, they have stirred up quite a commotion in the car scene. The big dogs knew this day would come and now they’ve come to bat with they’re own electric sports cars. Most likely to crush Tesla at their own game. Here are a few electric sports cars of 2020, and the years to follow, to look out for.

Tesla: Roadster

In case you’ve been living under a rock the past few years, Tesla is building an Electric Sports Coupe’. The Roadster was first announced in 2017 and is due to release in 2020. I included this modern marvel of a car simply because Tesla is now a household name and arguably what started all this fuss in the first place. Now that it’s release date is on it’s way, it gets added to the top of the list of electric sports cars of 2020.

Porsche: Taycan (turbo S)

This next addition to the Electric Sports Cars of 2020 list is the Porsche Taycan. This is one I never saw coming. First of all its a four-door, which until the Panamera, was unusual for Porsche. Second, it’s fully electric and FAST AS HELL! The Turbo s model will set you back nearly $200k but this thing is packing 750 hp and 774 lb-ft of torque! Not to mention, this car is absolutely gorgeous. Porsche is bringing their design and detail skills to the Sports EV fight this round and boy is it working for me. I’m a sucker for a well rounded four-door sports car. You and three of your buddies get to experience luxury and break-neck-electric speed. 

Karma: Revero GT

Karma is a rather obscure car company you may have never even heard of until now. Originally a Fisker brand launched in 2013, Karma had a short run after being bought out a year later by a Chinese company called Wanxiang. More on that in a later article. Technically this vehicle isn’t 100% electric. The entirety of the torque comes from the electric motor at the rear wheels. However, there is what Karma calls an on board generator to accommodate for longer trips. The Karma Revero GT can be driven on electric power alone, but when you don’t feel like stopping for a charge the 3 cylinder, 1.5 liter BMW engine will charge the battery for you. Definitely a unique concept. Almost sounds like cheating but the roads haven’t entirely adopted a network of charge stations yet so this is a brilliant work around. Karma’s style and inivative use of electric technology is what lands the Revero GT on Korvidae’s list of Electric Sports Cars of 2020.

Aston Martin: Rapide E

Aston Martin’s entry into the electric sports car market is another that caught me by surprise. I have been a fan of Aston Martin since I was young. Watching Daniel Craig in the James Bond reboot films chase down the bad guys in V12 roaring Aston Martin really sold this brand for me. They have such an iconic stance to them too, one that could never go overlooked. Again this one is a four-door, which is a win in my book. According to Aston Martin they’ve built this car to not only emulate the feel of a v12, but enhance it. They are claiming a top speed of 155 mph and a 0-60 time of less than 4 seconds. As you have probably noticed, none of these entries specs come close to the roadster from Tesla. Apparently Elon has figured something out that the heavy hitters haven’t. 

BMW: i4 (Concept 4)

Currently being called Concept 4, the recently unveiled BMW i4 seems to be a shot directly at Tesla. More specifically the Model 3. Though this is a concept still, it is said to go into production around 2021. BMW is boasting an 80 kwh battery which is predicted to produce 530 hp while supporting a 373 mile range. BMW has always had huge ambitions for the future of cars. Believe it or not they have been working on a lot more than seeing how big they can make the kidney grill before anyone notices. BMW, we’ve noticed. It’s a dead meme. This is just one of over 20 electric BMW models to be seen on the road in the next few years.
