This was in my Global Spec newsletter today. It says:
Here's a link to the Green Energy News article.Designed and built in North Carolina, this hot little two-seat sports car can do 0-60 in 3.4 seconds, and it's all electric — not a hybrid. The Inizio (Italian for "First") is powered by an 180 kW (241 HP) electric motor that puts it in a power class of the Ferraris and Lamborghinis. The motor itself is supplied by custom made lithium ion batteries, either a package of 12 or 24 depending on the model size. It can be charged in 6-8 hours with an onboard charger, and has a range of up to 250 miles with a top speed of 170 MPH (272 KPH).
