I mean they used lead acid batteries with Low cycle lives and terrible range. It was meant to be killed. Did y'all not see how bad the Ford Ranger electric sucked? lol
This is a HUGEly good thing. The reason why Hyundai is so competitive with the ecar market is because of their proximity to the battery manufacturers in their home company. Should be good to see the improvements of this.
I'm assuming the EV1 would've been similar to the Gen 1 Leaf with much worse results.
