The X1 Electric Concept Car. What happens when you take one Arial Atom chassis, and combine it with a 3 phase AC induction electric motor? Er…you get 0–60 in 3 seconds, 170 mpg equivalent, a top speed of 112 mph and 100 mile range. Now that’s what we call ‘lean, mean and green.’
The X1 prototype is a concept car, and a test platform. It is not a production car, and never will be. It’s a proof-of-concept vehicle that will lead to a production car in the future….The X1 production car will be better… much better.
