SIM-LEI aero EV achieves 84Wh/km @ 100kph - 207 miles on a ~24kWh pack! Cd is 0.19

This is a great achievement:

It would be great to see it from a few other angles.

I sure hope my CarBEN EV is this good (or better?)!

The Nissan Leaf got ~173Wh/mile on the same test, but this is impressive none the less.

Aerodynamically, the one odd thing is that ridge on the beltline / door handles? That and the (apparently) holey rims... I'd love to see the back of this car -- I mean in a good way!

Could it be this is only a mule, made to be ugly ?

Let's mod this :
- relocate the lights to the front fenders
- ditch the bulges with the door handles
- lower the window line so it doesn't look as massive
- extend the windows aft , glazing the cargo area
- clean up the mess of different design lines on the rear
- full aft wheel covers

~135Wh/mile (84Wh/km) at a sustained 62/mph100kph -- that is the *best* performance of a 4 seat electric car that I know of; or any car for that matter.
