I didn't see any Watt-Hour-Per-Mile meter on the car. It has a display showing how many more miles you can go on your current charge. That number of miles changes while you drive, depending on exactly how you drive.

As for running over my camera with the car.......
It's a small video camera that I can set on the ground. Then I drive the car forward to show off the underside of the vehicle.

I did notice that the front-bottom air dam on the car actually is pretty close to the ground. I had the set my camera behind that, otherwise that lip would have knocked the camera over as I pulled forward.

Here's some photos for you guys.

And, of course, the typical bad self-portrait...

At least that helps prove that I don't just make up all my weird stories.

I'll have some video posted tomorrow.

PS: After I ran over the camera, I then went and BACKED over it....
