Best-looking electric car ever?

[ Music ] ^M00:00:04 >> There are electric cars and there are electric cars. This is not a G whiz, this is the Lightning from a company of the same name here in Britain. Long, sleek, fast, gorgeous. Not what you think of when I say electric car, right. Look for a 0 to 60 time around 4 seconds, powered by motors at all 4-wheels. That's the ultimate way to do all wheel drive. No transmission and halfshaft and driveshaft and crap to make it all sloppy. Thirty-six-kilowatt lithium ion battery pack. They say, it will have a particularly short recharge time. Availability should be in about a year and half from now, should be around a quarter a million dollars. We'll see how things shape up.
