I take it is't an electric/gas hybrid. I'm not that suprised that it's so fast since electric motors make the most torque when they are stalled (i.e. zero rotational speed). I've heard that there are lots of fast electric cars, it's just keeping the batteries juiced that is hard.
It's all electric. Saw a link to this on Slashdot a week or 2 ago. Like all electric cars the problem is range. Cool to see that they can actually perform though. I think that is one reason why people don't like electric cars - they think they're slower than regular cars.
