While I was back visiting my family in the UK I got the chance to see up close and learn all about the Evelio.
Being a car loving freak this was a big deal to me!
The Evelio is an electric super car.
It's my cousin and her husband that had the crazy idea a couple of years ago.
With only a small team, and no funding, they went through with the idea and built the car from scratch.
A mind blowing project!
The result is quite a sight!
Looks like a car that has come back from the future!
As well as being a swish looking sports car, the Evelio is also fuel efficient and therefor friendly to the environment.
It is powered by a phosphate lithium ion battery, which is fast to charge and enables the car to be driven for 240km (less if you're racing full speed).
The Evelio goes from 0-100km/h in only 3,2 seconds! That is pretty fast!
It's top speed is only 140km at the moment because it has only has a 1 speed gearbox (lack of funds).
I was chuffed to bits to see my cousins car up close and learn all about it.
If you ask me, I find the car looks great, and with electric cars being the 'in' thing at the moment I'm really hoping they'll get the finances to develop it.
What do you guys think about electric cars?
Do you think they are the future?
Would you buy an electric car if you had the chance?
Well until someone decides to make an all electric 4WD, with enough batterie power to get me through the Sahara Desert (not many plugs to charge it up out there!) I'll be sticking with my Jeep :)
Have a great weekend!
