Another super fast electric car

There is the Tesla Roadster

and the Eliica

and the Wrightspeed X1
And now, the 640+hp electric-hybrid Mini cooper. The PML Mini QED has a top speed of 150mph and can reach 60mph from a standstill in only 4.5 seconds. All the power comes from a small gasoline engine in conjuction with four 160hp electric motors (one in each wheel).AA The car can operate in an all-electric mode with a range of 250 miles, or in hybrid mode, with a range of 932 miles and fuel economy of 80mpg.AAAA Check it out

Merging the Worlds

"Quite simply the analogy would be, you know, you walk to the top of the hill and you walk up, and to the bottom of the hill- but in doing so you have gained energy. It really is that simplistic."
