Characteristics of Electric Coupes
The few examples that are currently available in the US paint a rather specific picture of electric coupes:
- They have almost unlimited output potential
- They put power down to the road instantaneously
- They are produced by high-end, specialist automakers
- They currently cost more than almost any other car
What to Consider When Buying an Electric Coupe
The main thing to consider is the price tag and extremely limited number of options, both of which will make it hard for the average buyer to find what they want. You can also find respectable performance in many of the other EVs on the market in a variety of segments.
- Unbeatable acceleration and speed
- Refined and instantaneous power delivery
- Some of the best-looking cars on the road
- Brand status from powerhouse automakers
- Extremely high price tag
- Limited all-electric range
- Only a handful of options
What is the best electric coupe?
There are only a few models currently available, and all of these can tick the boxes to make them the best electric coupes. The Lotus Evija and Rimac Nevera - as well as its Italian twin, the Pininfarina Battista - are the most well-known for their mind-bending acceleration, but the Rolls-Royce Spectre EV is a bit more familiar-looking and not quite so exorbitantly priced.
How much do electric coupes cost?
These are hypercars in the truest sense of the word, with most billing customers for over two million dollars. The Rolls-Royce Spectre fits into a different segment, which is priced at half a million. The Maserati GranTurismo Fulgore hasn’t revealed its official price yet, but it might be cheaper.
What electric coupe has the best range?
We don’t have definitive figures for most of the electric coupes currently on the market or in development, but the Rimac Nevera seems to be the best, with around 340 miles of range, which is a lot more than we speculate for most of the competition.
How reliable are electric coupes?
High-performance cars are built to push the limits of automotive engineering and are produced by automakers with impressive pedigrees. They will likely want their products to leave a good impression, so you can expect good reliability - or, at the very least, instant response from automakers should something go wrong.
