It's already been done, it's called a Tesla roadsterI am wondering in a hypothetical how much weight in batteries do you need to give a 2000lb car 200 miles of range. For example, lets say you started with an Elise, swapped the engine for electric motors, so you back at 2000lbs. Now we add batteries. How much weight is it for 200 miles range? I think this will be interesting. If it is like 1000 more lbs, it would be hard to make a compelling Lotus like electric car. However, if you could do it for 500lbs that would be pretty cool.
One of the articles said this car was not for the US market. Guessing at this price point some might make it here anyway.I'm assuming the US is getting at least 5 of them, since there are 5 Evija accredited partners in the US.
