These are the fastest all-electric cars in
the world. 2013’s car of the year gets the equivalent
of 89 miles to the gallon. It also drives better than it’s gas-guzzling BMW and Mercedes
competitors. The modified BMW packs an astonishing 850
lbs of torque, so much that its wheels spin when accelerating at the start of a race.
Before the Model S was Tesla’s Roadster, the first consumer vehicle that showed the
world electric’s potential. It’s since been phased out.
With a body by Shelby motors, and a $500,000 price tag, it’s being billed as the first
all-american electric super-car. The B10 Le Mans Prototype car was originally
powered by a bio-fueled engine before being converted to pure electric.
This race-car was designed for the inaugural Formula E series, whose inaugural, all-electric
race is Sept. 13 in Beijing. With a 170 miles per gallon equivalent, the
X1 proves that electric can deliver extreme performance without compromising efficiency.
It ran an all-electric record-breaking run of 10 minutes 15.38 seconds up the 12-mile
course at the Pike’s Peak International hill climb.
To keep the weight down on this $1 million beast, the Rimac uses carbon fiber throughout
the body. This built for the drag-strip, one-of it’s
kind, heavily modified 1972 Datsun uses a $100,000 prototype battery used by US Navy
helicopters. Thanks for watching. To watch all the videos
