The Electrum Spyder is built from polyester fiberglass composite on a steel chassis. Double A arm suspension, coil over shocks, and rack and pinion steering assure a smooth and responsive ride. Interlocks ensure the car cannot be powered up when the driver is not in the driver's seat, handy if you are the type that needs a jump at the end of a long day in the office because you forgot your headlights. The charger is available in 100v or 220v and a charge time of 2-8 hours is specified. 20 vehicles will be available in the beta run.
