    There they go again with that 350km range claim - measuring it at 40km/h is most definitely cheating.

    If the range figures for all the cars on the chart were measured under the same conditions it would be a fair comparison. Clearly that is not the case.

    I go by the kwh for the batteries instead. At 40 kwh, it's 1⅔ times that of the LEAF, slightly more than the Mini-E, and 3/4 that of the Roadster. Not bad, really.

    But considering the shape is probably not too much more aerodynamic than the roadster and the weight is almost 80% more you are not getting very far with that battery.

    Looking at the numbers the Leaf with about 25% more weight and about 45% the battery getting almost 50% of the range of the Roadster seems a bit optimistic as well.

    Hmm... Getting a bit harder to shrug off the Chinese products... Those predicting that they will own the market might be right in a decade.
