    So...not true? Bummer, because that thing sounds really cool. Even if it was priced for billionaires, would be fun to see...

    Only rendering prototypes, no proof what so ever. You could probably make a car that has most of the specs they claim, although it might cost a few million a piece. However they claim they can charge in less than 10 minutes lol. So.. 625 miles, so that's a battery of about 200kWh. In 10 minutes that should be 1.2 megawatts. or 1kAmp @ 1.2kV..

    I smell political promises

    Sounds more like this thing needs 1.21 Gigawatts

    Nah, couple megawatts should be enough.

    BTW, there is already discussion of this EV here: 1000 km+ (625 miles) in EV?

    And this EV also promised 10 min charging. Not with a huge range(200km), but at least they actually made prototype hardware and tested it...
