1100lb, 30kwh, 350 miles. 12.8 watts per lb-mile. EVTV's rule of thumb is 10 watts per lb-mile.

Ford X-1 looks like a GT40 roadster with interesting add-ons in the front.

The coupe version wasn't the last word in aerodynamics, but this one has the potential to be a slight improvement in lowering the area in the CdA formula.

I suspect there is a static air bubble in the cockpit (like many targa's) and the air flows over and around the windscreen.

It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter's Law.

When I drive a car I'm a driver. When I'm sitting on my couch I'm a biker.
