W00t for people who own cars that didn't even cost 9k new,

Anyway, I think that's too much, I'd prefer to build my own and put a big chunk of solar on my housing situation. Still, for some very nitpicky people it might be pretty good.

For the price to buy that Sparrow, you could take that truck concept above, add aeromods, and replace 2,400 pounds of flooded batteries with 2,400 pounds of high power AGMs, replace the Zilla 1k with a Zilla 2k, add a differential used in high power drag race setups, and add another 9" motor and allow series/parallel shifting and eliminate the gearbox. Enough would be left over for a high quality paintjob.

This would in theory allow for an electric muscletruck that does 0-60 mph in < 5 seconds, 150+ miles highway range, 5,300 lbs weight, ~400 horsepower, 800+ lb ft of torque, and a top speed limited by gearing of at least 120...

And you'd probably have money left over after all that.
