Forget the Jaguar C-X75 or BMW i8 range-extenders. When it comes to the greenest supercars around, pure-electric drivetrains are a must.

Whether its single motors, dual motors, or one in each wheel, electric cars offer enthusiasts a whole new level of performance, and capabilities never seen before.

Here’s our roundup of the latest production-intended electric supercars, either prototypes or are already on sale, as well as some wild concepts that give us a preview of what's to come.

Tesla Roadster

Starting off with what’s already in showrooms, you can’t look pass the Tesla Roadster. Admittedly, production of this all-electric roadster is coming to an end, but there’s still plenty on offer and good deals to be had.

In its short production life, the 185 kW (248 horsepower) Tesla Roadster has gone from relative obscurity to a post-child for electric vehicles, thanks in part to its sub-4.0 seconds 0-60 mph time and supercar performance. 

Prices start at $109,000 and you can expect a 245 mile driving range on a single charge.

While the major automakers whittle away on their electric car developments, a small German firm by the name of e-Wolf has been building and selling a range of electric vehicles including small scooters, full-size commercial vehicles and high-performance track cars, for several years now.

Its latest creation is the Alpha 1 SRF, a stripped out racer powered by twin electric motors rated at a combined 280 kW (395 horsepower) and capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in just 3.9 seconds and reaching a top speed of 144 mph.

Unfortunately, pricing doesn’t come cheap at $309,000 and the driving range is only 186 miles.
