11 best electric and hybrid supercars: Over 1,300hp from an electric? It’s here

Much like the other competition at the top-end, Porsche has opted for a hybrid drive system for its 918 Spyder hypercar. The result is a 4.6-litre V8 producing 599bhp coupled with a 282bhp electric motor for a total power output of 874bhp with 944lb-ft of torque.

The Porsche 918 Spyder tops out at 214mph and can manage 0-62mph in 2.6 seconds.

This beauty will set you back around £780,000.

McLaren P1

McLaren continues to impress with its road cars and the P1 is one of its best. The base engine is a twin-turbo 3.8-litre V8 that can push out 727bhp. This is coupled with a 176bhp electric motor for a total of 903bhp and 664lb-ft torque.

The 0-60mph time of the P1 is just 2.8 seconds, meaning 0-100mph in just 5.2 seconds. This is largely thanks to an overall weight of just 1,490kg.

The McLaren P1 was a limited build initially where it cost £866,000.
