    Thats right guys, someone had the audicity to rip out the FA20 engine and replace it with an all electric engine. Huh?





    The first thing I thought was electric cars aren't powerful, and i'm still scratching my head as to why someone would bother after discovering the entire car puts out a whopping 75kw, and 240Nm of torque. Sure that is 35Nm torque more than the FA20 engine, but the peak power output is significantly lower.

    The other downside is the batteries add another 202KG to the base weight of a standard GT86 which now tips the scales at 1,460kg.

    The battery cells are 37kWh lithium polymer which will see you get approximately 250kms between charges.

    Great Green inititive but would you be happy after putting in all that effort with the results?

    I don't understand why they went for such a large pack, 250km is a huge range by electric car standards

    Personally I think the battery cells need another few years worth of development before I'd consider getting an electric car... The cost of the batteries and weight of them at the moment and not being solar charged are the main reasons why I wouldn't make the switch over to an electric car.
