PG has just created a new, Lotus
-based EV ready to dethrone the Tesla Roadster
as the most famous EV spinoff from the British automaker. The PG Elektrus, from the front, literally stares at you and smiles. That twinkle in its eye? No, just a set of LED lights. Using a Lotus Elise
chassis and plenty of carbon fiber and composites, it weighs under 2,000lbs and can run from 0-62mph in under three seconds. Top speed is said to be 186mph and it has a range of 217 miles on just a single charge.
