They have an updated version, called the SIM-WIL:

New SIM-WIL electric prototype has 218 mile range, in-wheel motors [w/video]

SIM-WIL: SIM-Drive's 351KM-range EV with 5.4 Second 0 - 100KM/H Performance | Integrity Exports

SIM-Drive Unveils EV Prototype With Long Drive Range -- Tech-On!

The battery is now significantly larger (35.1kWh vs 24.9kWh) and it now consumes a smidge less than 100Wh/mile. So that speaks to a higher Cd than the SIM-LEI.

They have lightened it by ~70kg, and more importantly, it looks smoother. I would like to see the longer tail on the blue car. Please note the active grill louver. They are talking about production in 2014 -- kewl!!!

Sincerely, Neil
