Dodge ZEO BEV sports car

Hello -

The "Subaru brings back diesel" thread led me to find this :

Detroit 2008: Dodge ZEO BEV sports car

Dodge's entry in this year's concept car sweepstakes is the ZEO, a four-seat, battery-powered sports car. The low slung Zero Emissions Operation coupe has 64kWh worth of lithium ion batteries packed between the frame rails. The electric energy is passed to a 268 hp electric motor mounted between the rear wheels. The battery pack should be sufficient for a 250-mile range in the 2,650lb ZEO (more numbers after the jump).

The bold fenders sweep over the 23-inch wheels and the windshield glass sweeps all the way back to the trailing edge of the roof. In typical concept car form, the nearly flat windshield will almost surely be impossible to see out of due to reflections and the tiny mirrors are likely completely useless. On the other hand, if Chrysler were to develop this for production, it would make a cool, somewhat more practical alternative to a Tesla Roadster.

Is this a "Dodge Volt" or a "Dodge EV1"?
