    Just read about this "future" car this morning and has some amazing specs. Not sure how long before they come to market, but could be a real Tesla contender. From their website (http://www.silexpower.com)

    - 640bhp
    - 4400Nm torque
    - 2200kgs weight
    - 5420mm length
    - 2160mm width
    - 1480mm height
    - 3540mm wheel base

    - 0 - 100Km/h in <2.9s
    - 0 - 200Km/h in <6.0s
    - 300km/h top speed (electronically limited)

    - 1000km autonomy (at 125kmph speed)
    - <10 min charging time from flat batteries to full charge
    - Full LED / OLED lighting throughout
    - 4 passenger seating capacity
    - Carbon fibre body

    Also says this on their Facebook page: "This super EV goes 620 miles, 186 MPH - and it isn't Tesla"

    there was an article on that car on green.autoblog.com yesterday. The claims are pretty ridiculous ... I'll believe it when I see it.

    Those supercar specs and body construction will inevitably come with supercar prices. I would venture to guess that there is no way to make this happen for less than $300k US (which is me being optimistic). More likely around $500k

    Agree. It's not Tesla but is not even for normal people.

    Went on line several weeks ago and watched a video, it is very extreme, not very mainstream. There is some interesting facts on the vehicle, wonder how true and how much. It will be interesting to follow the company and see what happens.
