Hi,

All I can say is wow. Less than 100 kwh battery bank!

This is not a calculated distance. It was wheels on the ground and 15% capacity still remained.

Unfortunately it is only a proto type--so no point in trying to order one.

Its marketing "vaporware" to get your hopes and dreams up until there is actual real world usable versions which often never even meet the blown out of proportion marketing hype.

To sell something that no market or product exists for, one must apply PT Barnums approach to marketing hype of the "Greatest Show On Earth".

I wonder how many miles it gets in the us south in august with 95 degree heat and heavy humidity and AC running full blast. BTW same question I have for any electric only vehicle.

But but but … still impressive and shows battery technology and management software are getting better.

Eh, there's a sucker born every minute...apparently there are rich suckers too...must've inherited the $ though, because anyone smart enough to lay down 1,500,000 Benjamin Franklins for a car, you'd think was smart enough to realize the value of goods received.
