No, the Ultimate Aero EV is not a kit.

"SSC expects to roll out its first full-scale, pre-production Ultimate Aero EV in second quarter 2009. Ultimate Aero EV deliveries will start as early as fourth quarter 2009. SSC will pursue the title of "World's Fastest Production Electric Car" and conduct a marketing campaign consisting of international motor shows, magazine articles, TV appearances and live media events."

Yes, as you point out, the 'All Electric Scalable Powertrain (AESP)' drivetrain will be available separately in various sizes, but the Ultimate Aero EV itself will be a turn key, production car.

I hope they can deliver. The Ultimate Aero's a cool car. I can't wait to see the EV.

Thanks for the link fix, Daox.
