Robert Llewellyn’s channel is doing an excellent job of raising ECO awareness among motorists. In his latest video, he tries to address people’s idea that EVs can’t be fast or fun - both statements being rendered false and redundant by the car he has chosen to prove that point: the Lighting GT electric supercar.
IT is a stunning piece of design, with the swept back cabin, long bonnet and huge wheels, you’d be forgiven for thinking that it’s a gas-guzzling V12 supercar - but it isn’t. Powering the British designed and built supercar are two electric motors with a total power output of 400 hp. Factor in electric motors’ responsive nature and 100% of torque from 0 rpm, and you have a very pokey sports car which sprints from 0-100 km/h in under 5 seconds and on to a top speed currently limited to 200 km/h (125 mph).
The car has a range of 240 km (150 miles) and its battery pack can withstand over 10,000 charge-discharge cycles. If you are interested in this stunning-looking EV with classic sports car looks (and performance), it should be launched later this year.
