    Wow 62 miles on 13kWh battery. That would be the equivalent of 405 miles with an 85kWh battery! Probably at 25mph.

    Another Tesla killer. How many times does Tesla need to be killed? Nine, like a cat? What number are we up to now? Five? BMWi8, BMWi3, Caddy ELR, Bolt, Fish Tank SUV... Oh, wait, I think the Hell Cat was in there too. What else did I miss?

    Pretty sure Fisker, Chevy Volt, Coda, and Detroit Electric made some wild claims, too.

    It is nice to see them doing something fanciful and learning about the technology, but they still don't know how to put all the pieces together quite right.

    That can't be electric propulsion. It doesn't take and engineer to know you wouldn't put a heavy aquarium of tropical fish and water into a vehicle that would look to minimize weight to increase range.

    Even if you were powering your car with a nuclear reactor I'm not quite sure why one would build an aquarium into a car...

    Don't you see, the aquarium IS the reactor. You can clearly see the purple nuclear rods in the bottom left corner - where that ominous glow emenates from. Also, notice how the once living fish have mutated into plastic ones :wink:

    Hey, see - look, the center row does turn around backwards. Nailed it!

    I don't see any wood paneling on the outside.

    Except that its the front row that is turned around...probably not legal for the driver to turn around and feed the fish on the highway.

    Oh, of course. That should have been obvious. My mistake.

    LMFAO should be a lock for the "funniest photo ever posted to TMC award"! :biggrin:

    The plastic fish must be for kids in the backseat. Reminds me of a bathroom toothbrush holder and trash bin my son had when he was about 5 years old that had these things floating inside.

    Whatever were they thinking?
