Thumbs up A new EV to park beside your Tesla Roadster

FYI: http://www.silenceinc.ca/

You may already know about this vehicle, in its original ICE form, as the T-Rex:




The vehicle has been produced with ICE-only propulsion (crotch rocket drivetrain) in Quebec for about 6 years now. You can see the ICE version in action in this video clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cuo1hezmGKQ . Very fun.

The EV version specs (from their web site):

Name
Silence PT2

Model
100 KW +

Dimension of the vehicule
13' length, 6' width, 4' height

Tire Brand
Goodyear

Weight
900 lbs (including battery)

Top speed
More than 125 mph

Autonomie (Range)
125-250 mi

Price ( includes charger)
$60,000 Cdn

It's one sexy vehicle! I saw a T-Rex (ICE) in real life - a black one driving down the main street of the quiet little city I live in. Talk about a dramatic road presence. Menacing even.

If I had the money, I'd have the EV version of this in a heartbeat.

Thumbs up Yeah baby!

Now THAT'S elemental driving, and more fun than a stripped metro. This formula of mating a motorcycle back end and a formula ford front has been dickered with since large bore crotch rockets first appeared in the 1980's. It looks like these guys finally did it right. For those of us that like the pure driving experience this looks like a great alternative to a lotus super 7.
I like it!

It kinda reminds me of the Ariel Atom (seen elsewhere in GS), and it's corresponding Wrightspeed EV.

Yes, good comparison. Except that apparently you can order this one.

Doesn't say what the battery chemistry is though.
