It gives a lot of automobile enthusiasts an opportunity to take their dream vehicle out for a virtual spin.




Forza Horizon 5 is a racing video game that is set within an open-world environment, and it was released on November 5, 2021, by Xbox Game Studios.

The Fastest Electric Cars In The World

Some of these electric cars come with ridiculous specs that seem too good to be true, yet they have proven to be the fastest EVs in the world.

1 Porsche Taycan Turbo S

Porsche’s first electric car after the Porsche P1, the Taycan Turbo S, is among the best electric cars, not just in Forza Horizon 5 but in real life. The 2020 Taycan Turbo S has some serious power. To begin with, this all-electric sports car comes with a mind-boggling acceleration time with the Launch Mode on, as it can go from 0-60 mph in just 2.3 seconds.


The 2024 Taycan Turbo S comes with two Permanent Magnet Synchronous motors capable of producing up to 938 horsepower. Additionally, the 2024 Taycan Turbo S uses a fairly large 97-kWh battery pack which allows the sports car to go up to around 388 miles on a full charge.

As far as looks go, the Taycan Turbo S dons a sporty look and comes with design elements that help reduce turbulence and offer improved aerodynamics. This electric sports car is available for purchase in Forza Horizon 5 as a 2020 version, and you can purchase it through the “Welcome Pack” bundle.


2 Lotus Evija

It is no surprise to find the limited-production all-electric British hypercar, Lotus Evija, in Forza Horizon 5. Without a doubt, one of the most exquisite cars ever made, the Lotus Evija, was first unveiled in July 2019.

One of the fastest street-legal cars in recent times, the four electric motors of the Evija can generate just shy of 2,000 horsepower, propelling it to 60 mph from a standstill in under three seconds. To power the four electric motors, the Evija comes with a 93-kWh battery pack and can go up to 250 miles on a single charge.

Additionally, this hypercar needs only 12 minutes to charge up to 80 percent and 18 minutes for 100 percent. With an aerodynamic design, it is also one of the lightest EVs ever made as it weighs just 3,700 pounds. Of course, a car such as the Evija won’t be cheap, and it costs roughly $2.3 million to own one. But in the game, you can buy it from the Auction House.
