1. Tesla Model S
When it comes to electric cars, the Tesla Model S is the leader of the pack. The Model S should be looked to for inspiration when other car companies are crafting their electric models. Both stylish and powerful, the Model S will impress anyone who drives it. Equipped with two electric motors, an induction AC motor in the front generating 257 horsepower, and one in the rear generating 257 horsepower; the Tesla Model S has a total output of 329 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque. All of which is powered by a 70-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Without one drop of gasoline the Model S can wipe the floor with a number of sports cars in its class. The aptly named ludacris mode will get your heart pumping when engaged, allowing the Model S to reach high speeds in a matter of seconds. The Model S gets an estimated 240 driving miles off one charge, equating to an estimated 95 mpg city and 106 mpg highway.
