2019 NIO EP9
The EP9 uses four electric motors — each with its own individual gearbox — for a total power output of 1360 horsepower. Not only is the EP9 very quick (accelerating to 62 mph in a mere 2.7 seconds), in 2017 this electric hypercar completed a lap of the legendary Nurburgring Nordschleife racetrack in Germany in a staggering 6:45.9, making it the fastest electric car around the track. (The Volkswagen ID.R broke that record 2019.) Even more impressive, the NIO set a world record for the fastest autonomous sports car around the Circuit of the Americas in Texas, setting a time of 2:40.33 and reaching a top speed of 160 mph — all without a driver.
