    I was just wondering what ever happened to the T-Rex Lightning. I thought it was really promising, and it was supposed to have been available for sale before now. There was supposed to be a promotional tour, but I never heard anything. A little research provides the answer: The company has gone through more upheavals.

    T-Rex has merged with a company called Cirbin. The new company will be called Campagna Motors. This is a return to the Campagna name that was previously used by the makers of the T-Rex vehicle, after Daniel Campagna who invented it.

    They are also setting up a new facility for their HQ, research and assembly in a suburb of Montreal. They expect to have production of the T-Rex restarted and delivery of vehicles begun by fall -- but the press release doesn't say whether they will be gasoline or electric versions.

    They also have a new vehicle called the V13R, which appears to be very similar to the T-Rex but with very different body styling. Looks less like a Jetsons car and more like an open-topped roadster. (I personally think it looks goofy.)

    Press releases here. . .

    Campagna- Fun, Style, Performance

    Now here's the bad news. As far as I can tell from looking at their new website, all information about electric vehicles has been removed. Both the T-Rex and the V13R are described only as gasoline-powered vehicles.
