    '18650 not found' on either page, so color me less than excited. But a forklift motor and a bunch of AGMs could still be fun in this one.

    What's the point of an Electric Supercar that's slower than a Model S?

    They're trying to position themselves against Tesla.

    "The Tomahawk could very well be the fastest sports car yet, the much awaited 2+2 all electric is expected to unveil in 2017. Accelerating from 0-60 in 3 seconds, the Tomahawk offers an impressive 300 mile range and is a force to be reckoned with."


    "Fastest sports car yet". With those specs? Seriously? Maybe they're trying to get away with it by saying the Model S is not a sports car and they're faster than a Roadster...

    Max speed 160 so 5 mph 'faster' than the Model S.

    The max speed (for both) is so far below general Sports Car territory that it shouldn't even be counted as a metric.

    Depends on your definition. You can get some great laps on most tracks without topping 160. Let them market. Looks interesting!

    I'd be interested in seeing a similar graph of just EVs. Perhaps include hybrids, perhaps not.

    The car looks like it was based on a cartoon for the movie Cars.

    Except the Model S isn't under $150k, at least not the P versions in CAD.

    Ugh. Looks like a fibreglass kit-car that a Batman fan would buy.

    If I was in the market for something 'sportier' than the MS, I'd probably give this a swerve. Or more likely, put a chunk of the price into an electric conversion of something else instead.

    Nice to see their interest in the EV market, but.... yuck.

    only reason it would exist is if it were significantly cheaper than the Model S like $65K CDN
