    Nice. I've been considering doing an EV conversion on my Ariel Atom like the Wrightspeed X1. The X1 was how I first heard about the Ariel Atom. I'm just concerned about ruining a perfectly good Atom, so I haven't gotten up the nerve to start planning it yet. The performance would need to be as good as it is with the current 250 hp supercharged engine before I'd start looking at doing it.

    I received a link to the following from Ariel North America, which I guess is what TMI is operating under now.

    Ariel "HIPERCAR" Announcement

    Lots of design goals and other information including a link to the full press release is posted there. This sounds fun!
