Goodwood Festival of Speed 2021: Best electric vehicles

The Goodwood Festival of Speed (FOS) is an illustrious event that gives members of the public the chance to see their favourite vehicles – from classic motorbikes to futuristic concepts.

The event also hosts an annual hill climb, which pits various drivers against each other in an epic shootout to become the fastest racer of the event. At the time of writing, the current record of 41.60 set by former German F1 driver, Nick Heidfeld in the McLaren-Mercedes MP4/13, has yet to be broken. In 2019, Romain Dumas came close to breaking the record with the all-electric Volkswagen I.D. R setting a time of 42.32. The French racing driver even set a time of 39.90 in qualifying but failed to achieve this time in the all-important shootout.

Hillclimb aside, there is often a number of unique and spectacular cars on display. This year, Goodwood organised a unique area for vehicles that have an all-electric powertrain. Indeed, Electric Avenue showcased a number of EVs and aims to highlight the government’s push to achieve its ‘Road to Zero’ strategy; where all the sales of new petrol and diesel cars will cease by 2030.

Showcasing a few vehicles from Electric Avenue and other manufacturers’ stands, TotallyEV presents its favourites of the show – swipe or click through the images to see the next EV.
