Due to the high torque generated by electric motors, you can get an electric car up to a very impressive speed in a short-distance test like a drag race. The problem comes when you run out of juice 45 minutes into your L.A. commute....

What could be even more fun would be electric rock crawling. Like the crazy people who take Jeeps and Hummers up vertical rock walls. Only with super lite weight vehicles with almost impossible torque and adhesion. The back flips would make up for the lack of noise. Then again a car bouncing down the side of a cliff is probably fairly noisy on its own.
