Top Gear presenter, Chris Harris, explains why electric cars make sense, as well as what he is excited and concerned about for the future of them.
The idea of electric cars replacing traditional internal combustion engines is something you're either super excited about or completely dreading as a car enthusiast. Electric cars have crept up on us over the last two decades, slowly but surely. But, the "cool" factor of them largely comes from what Tesla has done.
While chatting about the new Tesla Model S "Plaid", Chris Harris subtly admits that the new open-top steering wheel design has excited his inner-child and it just looks incredible. But, as he is a fan of oversteering, he says: "It's a no from me".
What got Chris Harris excited, though, are the performance figures new electric cars are offering – especially with the new Model S being able to get from 0 to 60mph in under two seconds... which is preposterous!
Chris explains that it's likely that most cars on the road in the next five years will all be able to accelerate faster than most current supercars.
And, in terms of making the big switch from combustion engines to electric, Chris Harris has been considering a Porche Taycan, but Audi announcing the e-Tron GT RS has thrown a spanner in the works with one of the most gorgeous cars he has ever seen.
