Some specs: 0 to 60 mph: 3.1 seconds. 600 horsepower (unlike gasoline-powered cars, having more available power doesn't make an EV less efficient when you're not using that power). 100 miles/161 kilometers range (vs. 250 miles/402 kilometers for the Tesla Roadster), 4-6 hours to charge the batteries. Carbon fiber body. $125,000 price tag.
