market watch-insight: goodwood fos (from weird to hyper)...
Many British (and international) readers will be aware that Goodwood Festival of Speed took place again this month, embracing the electric revolution like never before. Petrolheads beware, the world’s fastest EVs took centre stage at this year’s iconic event.
Yes, you heard right – Goodwood and EVs go hand in hand. The 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed is not just about the roaring engines and the smell of burning rubber anymore. It’s a symphony of whirring electric motors, futuristic designs, and jaw-dropping acceleration that will leave even the most sceptical, conventional motorheads in awe.
As we at E-Mobility Search and Goodwood FOS organisers know well, EVs have not been “sluggish” or “boring” for decades now. This event witnessed EVs that can go from 0 to 60 faster than you can say “electric dreams.” From sleek, aerodynamic supercars to rugged, off-road electric beasts, the festival is an electric wonderland for anyone who craves speed and sustainability.
But hey, don’t worry, gas-guzzlers! We know you still love the classics, and the Goodwood Festival of Speed hasn’t forgotten its roots. As always, you can feast your eyes on a dazzling display of vintage beauties and iconic petrol-powered machines. It’s the perfect blend of past and future, combustion, and electrons, all in one adrenaline-pumping event.

As usual, festivalgoers were treated to thrilling hill climb runs, as is becoming more common now, undertaken by the fastest electric cars on the planet as well as their ICE cousins. Crowds felt the rush as these whisper-quiet speed demons raced up the famous Goodwood hill, leaving a trail of astonishment in their wake. The only EV to make the top 10 this year was the Rimac Nevera, but astonishingly, this is a production EV and its 49.32-second time was only 4 seconds behind the winning car, and it costs half what the winner does. Other EVs have set faster times in previous years, for example last year’s winner – The McMurtry Speirling (setting the overall course record in 39.08 BRISK seconds!).
But it’s not all about the competition. The festival also offers you the chance to get up close and personal with the latest EV models from top manufacturers. Who knows, you might just find yourself falling head over heels for the future of mobility.
And let’s not forget the electrifying atmosphere of the festival. The energy is contagious as enthusiasts from all walks of life come together to celebrate their shared love for speed and innovation. It’s a true carnival for car lovers, where you can geek out over tech specs, exchange EV driving tips, and maybe even score some sick EV swag!
So, mark your calendars for next year’s event and get ready for a high-voltage experience like no other. Whether you’re a die-hard EV fan or a curious onlooker, this event will leave you buzzing with excitement and newfound appreciation for the electric future of transportation.
Goodwood FOS is an unforgettable celebration of speed, style, and these days – sustainability. If you’re lucky enough to grab a ticket in the future, we’ll see you there!
