ZAP-X Electric Car – prototype the world

Zapxelectriccar

The ZAP-X Crossover Electric Car. Mmm…if I had a dollar for every ‘coming soon’ whizzy-fied sports wagon electric car that appeared and disappeared without trace or funding, I’d be a very wealthy ferret. Oh yes I would. OK, so at least the company has a track record, but even so, allow me to be a little cynical when I read about recharging the batteries ‘in as little as 10 minutes…’  Sheesh! [Via Metafilter]

 The drive system alone is enough to excite driving fanatics, featuring an innovative all-wheel drive option with revolutionary electric motors inside each of the wheels, potentially delivering 644 horsepower and speeds up to 155mph. An advanced battery system will enable the car to travel a range up to 350 miles between charges, with a rapid charge technology that can recharge the batteries in as little as 10 minutes.

  • Doesn’t look like those tyres hold much air either.

    Solid tyres probably lower the rolling resistance, just like those ye olde wagons.
