No transmission, just a gear reduction box. If you want to change direction of travel, the motor runs the other way. IIRC, 0-60 mph is listed as 6.5 seconds by Chevrolet. Motor Trend reported it as 6.3 seconds. Either way, with no engine screaming and no transmission shifts lurching to remind you of the urgency of acceleration, it is deceptively quick.
There is an energy display that has optional configurations that are eaasily set to suit your preference.
I don't actually have a nickname for the car, but I couldn't submit without one. Same with engine displacement requirement.
Ecomods with an EV, let's see..... I would suggest a solar array to offset your consumption and then drive one any way you like it :-)
