Wrightspeed X1 Prototype High Performance Electric Vehicle

A few weeks back, I did a blog post on the Top Ten Electric Car Manufacturers in North America. Ninth on the list is Wrightspeed Inc. Wrightspeed has one of its own prototype [tag-tec]high performance electric vehicle[/tag-tec], the X1. Here are some of its amazing specs:
1) It can go 0-60 mph: 3.07 sec!
2) Weights 1536 lbs.
3) Uses a 3-phase AC induction motor and inverter.
4) The electric vehicle can go up to 112mph in 1st gear.
5) X1 Prototype cost: $150,000.00

The Wrightspeed X1 is not a production car. Based on its current electric vehicle technology, it is beating most of the top gasoline guzzling high performance cars in the market. Check out the video below where the X1 leaves behind a Ferrari Modena and a Porche Carrera GT eating dust.
