The one thing that new tech often throws up is headline grabbing fast things, and the electrification of cars has created some absolute monsters. From hybrid animals like the (mostly) 3D-printed Czinger C12, forthcoming Aston Martin Valkyrie and Mercedes Benz One, to the Tesla Roadster and Model S 'ludicrous' edition, there’s a lot to get your head around. And that’s before you get into the new crop of electric hyper-mega-cars, all with around 2000bhp of battery-only power. Yep, we’re talking about four-motored, four-wheel drive two seaters that get to 62mph in less than two seconds and can warp space and time so that you arrive for Monday morning meetings on Friday afternoons. That’ll be the Lotus Evija, Pininfarina Battista and Rimac C-Two, then. Not for the faint of heart or shy of wallet, though - you’ll need millions to join this club. Perhaps of more realistic interest is the Peugeot e208 or Mini Electric, the hot hatch has a special place in our hearts here at and it's good to see it still has a place in our electric future.  As does the Mustang, Ford have reinvented this American classic as their first electric car, the Mach-E, and it may be a family friendly SUV but don't panic, it's still Mustang-fast.
