Electric cars make crazy torque, and unlike gas power motors, produce it instantly instead of between certain power bands.

Here is a small blurb about the X1 electric sports car:

The X1 prototype is just the beginning. It meets its design specs of 0-60 in 3 seconds, 170 mpg equivalent; and at 1536 lbs, is only 36 lbs over the design target of 1500. It really does raise the performance driving experience to a new level, even for racing drivers. No clutch, no shifting, precise and immediate control of torque in drive and braking, perfect traction control…first gear takes you to 112mph…

In recent track testing, on street tires, it achieved the following performance:
0-30 mph: 1.35 sec
0-60 mph: 3.07 sec in 117 ft
0-100 mph: 6.87 sec
0-100-0 mph 11.2 sec
Lateral g: 1.3
Braking g: 1.2

I think it is more like a few hours with the next-gen battery packs, but in any case, we need to focus on building an infrastructure (e.g., swapping battery packs?) to address this present limitation.

The chassis looks like it's from an Ariel Atom. They kept the huge air intake behind the seats!
